Included in the Common Core standards, poetry was one of the earliest genres of literature and remains one of the most important today. Rhythm, word stress, and the other central elements of poetry are explained, as well as themes that are common in this sensory-based form of writing. Many examples of short poems are featured, including samples of the haiku form that originated in Japan or the Irish limerick known for incorporating humor, among others. After reading this guide, readers will feel confident in understanding many types of poems and may even try writing some verses of their own!
