So Excited

I am so excited!
So excited that I can:
Jump over the moon,
Do a headstand,
Hug a bear,
Yell out loud,
Do the dishes,
Make a hundred wishes.

But if there is on thing I won’t do:
Its to listen to you!

Description

This poem is a tone poem. As you can obviously see a tone poem is a type of poem that shows the authors attitude towards the poem. In this case the author is yours truly. And the tone of the poem is obviously excitement. But in the 2nd stanza you can see that the tone slightly changes to a kind of angry or annoyed tone. Now you know what a tone poem is and what this poems tone is.

Reason

Sometimes, I feel like:
Crying for no reason,
Yelling for no reason,
But when I smile,
I smile for a reason.

Description

Now once again we have another beautiful poem by yours truly and even though this poem is a short one. It is just filled with 5 poetic lines which we had to either do a free verse poem, poems without rhyming or patterns and that don‘t follow any rules, or a blank verse which is a poem that uses no rhyming but has iambic pentameters (patterns). Or you can do a rhyme verse which is a poem that uses rhyming. My poem is blank verse because even though I have no rhyming I have a pattern. You see I repeat the word “reason” a few times and it follow a pattern.

The Room

No matter how many times I tell him,
He never cleans his room!
On how dirty it is!
His underwear is under the ____
Bed.
His papers are on the __f_lo__o_r__.
Last weeks sandwich is a
M
O
L
D
Y
Mess!
Theirs something called “Clean up your room!”
I say to him everyday!
At last I punished him with a ban on T.V.
That’s when the stink went away.

Description

This poem is a poem with a speaker. A speaker poem is a person that is talking in the poem. Sometimes the speaker can be the author itself talking in the poem. Other times it is a made up character. In this case, you can figure out that the speaker is the kids mother because she “banned him with no T.V.” until his room is cleaned up. (Now mothers will do that, just ask my mother.)

My Cat

My cat is dumb!
Let me tell you that!
He’s the opposite of what a cat
Should be!
He hates mice,
But loves dogs.
He doesn’t like milk,
But prefers meat.
Now tell me,
Is that how a cat should be?

Description

This poem by yours truly is a irony poem. Ever heard of that word? Irony in poetic terms means when a result of something is the complete opposite of what you would expect. For example, in my poem you wouldn’t expect a cat to be friends with dogs. I mean dogs and cats hate each other. Well at least that’s what we would expect. And for a cat to not like milk! Unbelievable, right? (Yea I know, I have a dumb cat.) But it is ironic that my cat behaves the opposite of what cats should behave like. That is why this poem is a irony poem.

I Love You

Do you remember?
All the fun times we had.
Oh how you would laugh at my jokes.
Oh I’d do anything
To hear your lovely voice.
Your voice makes me smile
Even when I’m mad.

So I wrote this poem,
To tell you,
That I love
you!
