We are a group of 7th graders from Colorado who want to practice our writing and communication skills. We are excited to expand the walls of our classroom and collaborate with other classes! Please leave us comments and your blog URL, so we can respond back to you!
This topic is interesting. See different poets use different ways of writing to get their message to you. Some use a lot of words to describe something where others might use more pictures than words and briefly describe with words. Other poets just write small poems and that is just fine. I think I prefer to read the poems that are short and have some pictures. In a poem I look for imaging that creates colors in your head. Like in a poem by Edgar Allen Poe there is a line that says "fairy fruits and flowers." That makes be think of bright colors and my imagination does the rest. That is what I think makes a good poem.
