List of 50 Poetic Forms for Poets | Types of Poetry and Poems

I’m in the middle of putting together my list of poetic forms to cover in the 2015 issues of Writer’s Digest magazine, and it prompted me to take a look at what I’ve already covered on this blog over the years. As the title of this post suggests, I’ve covered at least 50 forms.

Be sure to check out each form. It might even make a good year-long challenge to write one form each week of the year.

Candy Poetry:

Just have the children brainstorm all sorts of candy. Put them on the white board or a chart. Then have them imagine a nature area, like a forest, that had candy instead of anything real. Use descriptive language so the reader could picture it and perhaps even draw a picture of what you wrote. Great for buddy poetry. (Almost like in Hansel and Gretel when they came upon a candy house. In fact you can read that first as a warm up activity.)

Mary’s Canary

Mary had a pretty bird,
Feathers bright and yellow,
Slender legs—upon my word
He was a pretty fellow!

The sweetest note he always sung,
Which much delighted Mary.
She often, where the cage was hung,
Sat hearing her canary.
