Fourth Quarter: 6. P6 Rhyme Scheme or Not Due May 6 29 by 10 p.m.  

Poetry often uses a rhyme scheme (identified by letters at the end of a line). Some poems, like limericks (silly, five-line poems with an AABBA rhyme scheme) require specific rhymes and require three lines (1, 2, 5) to be longer than others.

Others, like haiku, are not supposed to rhyme. Haiku are three-lined poems typically about nature that originated in Japan. These poems require a specific syllable count (5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line, 5 syllables in the third line). Haiku typically do not use modifiers such as a, an, and the.

Create or find either a limerick or a haiku and post it here (if you use a previously created poem, be sure you cite your source).

Limerick Example:

There once was a boy from Spain—A
His wrist he often did sprain—A
He sat and he cried—B
He never even tried—B
To get away from his terrible pain—A

Haiku Example:

lovely, pinkish trees (5 syl.)
swaying, gently dancing slow (7 syl.)
flowers blooming bright (5 syl.)
