Writing a Poem

A Free Verse Poem

Sample:

The Bagel — David Ignatow

I stopped to pick up the bagel

rolling away in the wind, annoyed with myself

for  having dropped it, /as it were a portent.

Faster and faster it rolled, /with me running after it

bent low, gritting my teeth,

and I found myself doubled over

and rolling down the street, /head over heels,

one complete somersault after another like a bagel

And strangely happy with myself.

 Directions: When you write your own free verse poem remember it has no rhymes but it does use all of the senses and tells about an idea. Think of an incident you would like to tell about; a free verse poem gives us a quick insight into life without rhymes. Consider a time when you reflected on your life. When you are finished with your poem write your whole poem on a separate sheet of paper with your name on it. Now create artwork to symbolize your free verse poem on construction paper.
