Poetry is one of the most captivating expressions in literature. This incredible art holds great significance in making the world of literature a more pleasing spot. In a world where digitalization is booming and communication has shrunk to restricted characters, less creativity, and easy readings, poetry has become one of the most underutilized and undervalued mediums in today's culture. Poetry has always been a compelling form of literature with the power to express a narrative or bring a message through its engaging rhythmic details. Poetry’ comes from the Greek word ‘poiein’ meaning ‘to make, create, compose One poet uses the metaphor of a room and a light switch to make a point about the importance of poetry. It is often used to discuss the power of the written word and the importance of listening attentively to the language. Often, it can be difficult to understand a poem without understanding its underlying meaning. To understand a poem, one needs to experience it for yourself. By exploring the poem and interpreting its meaning, a reader can better understand the poem and discover the poem’s depth. Adapting to the way a poem takes shape

When you’re writing a poem, it’s important to adapt to the way it takes shape. Poems create their own universes, and each poem creates its own set of emotional meanings. Rhyme is a very important component of poetry. It is defined as any two words that sound alike. For a rhyme to be perfect the last vowels must be stressed and all the sounds must be identical in both words. It’s easy to recognize a rhyme but one must be cautious not to overlook it. The effects of a rhyme include, unifying a poem, repetition of words links a concept to another and also helps to give a structure to a poem. Other effects of a rhyme include, tells one that it’s a poem, it makes a poem light and fun, beautiful and easy to remember. For example, “Karl Shapiro, the creator of the “Car Wreck” poem was brought into the world in Baltimore, Maryland. The reality the creator was Jewish and felt denied by the remainder of the understudies at the University of Virginian can be found in the lines of his poem. His desire to change the name to sound more Germanic made him disloyal according to Jewish society.

The poem depends on a genuine auto collision. Nobody knows whether Shapiro has seen the mishap or found out about it in the news

I believe poetry should be taught in public schools because it is important to learn different types of writing in English, poetry is a way of self-expression, and some students end up loving poetry. This opinion will be made clear by analysing poetry as well as other literature based on the topic. Poetry is a way of self-expression and various of poems show this. For example, the poem, Why Am I So Brown by Trinidad Sanchez. Poetry is a much deeper subject requiring more thought and effort required to create it than some might believe. I previously believed it was as simple as writing your thoughts or feelings down and incorporating the use of rhyme and pattern. Whatever my life takes me, poetry will always be in my heart. It proceeds yourself to a completely different world and supply you an opportunity to understand about yourself. I had the opportunity to be introduced to poetry in my literary themes class and I did not understand what it was talking about. As I consistently read my assigned poetry book The Gift of Tongues, I could resemble my life in these poetries. Out of all the poetries that I read, ten of these poems stood out to me about life. Although Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. Good morning, Ms Linton and students, today I will be informing you on why you must choose these two poems for the poetry speaking contest. The poems I have chosen are ‘The Man from Ironbark’, by Banjo Patterson as well as ‘He Started the Cycling Craze’ by myself. Narratives help the readers enjoy and understand poetry as it is a way the poets can connect to their readers by using storylines that may relate to them. Poetry, like any art, is in the eye of the beholder. An artist uses texture and color to create a masterpiece that could have any number of meanings, just like a poet uses diction and rhyme to give meaning to their poetry. I love poetry, I have written some to but my favourite poem of all is the one I composed on childhood as well all love and enjoy the most cherishable part of life which is childhood and so is the topic of my poem:

Childhood is the best ever part of life
It’s a wonderful gift which is full of surprise
Childhood is filled with so many things
Maybe a toy, a chocolate or a doorbell that rings
You, He or I
A person who is outspoken or shy
Poor or rich, dumb or intelligent
Everyone has a childhood which is unique and magnificent
Maybe mommy slaps or daddy lap
Brother’s fight or sister’s delight
Teacher’s lessons or being late for sessions
Friend’s parties or cake and pastries
Everything makes it so cherishable and bright
It brings smile on lips and shine in eyes
Even in a sad day or a dark night

Poetry has played an important role during wartimes, whether it be to inspire and unify a nation or to memorialise and remember those who fought. Australian poets throughout history such as Banjo Paterson have responded to the events and consequences of war in order to engage their audience to consider the themes of honour and sacrifice which can be seen in his patriotic 1915 poem…..
