Seasons of Poetry is a delightful journey through the year with vivid, stylized images, and engaging poems, that stand on their own. But it doesn't end there. Its lessons present an introduction to writing poetry, and an overview of poetic forms and traits. Based on Six-Trait Writing, and supportive of state standards for literature, it provides guidelines for beginning writers of any age to create depth, and poetic skill within their poems. The author's ""voice"" comes through her writing, inspiring even the most reluctant writer to discover the poet within; while self-driven writers will be off and running on their own. Some of the ideas presented in Seasons of Poetry are: ? Rhyming vs verse ? Figurative language ? Irony and juxtaposition ? Meter ? Repetition ? Sensory imagery ? Evoking strong emotion ? Aspects of a poets life ? Breaking conventions or using them in an unusual way ? White space, subtitles, and line breaks ? Glossary of terms Teache's and students alike, will find this multi-faceted book the perfect combination to inspire new poets. Bowcut says, ""it's an all-in-one course tied with a bow ... all you provide is the ribbon"".
