Drawing Conclusions
Pg. 583

The techniques an author uses in poetry may require readers to think critically to determine meaning. Drawing conclusions means arriving at an overall meaning or understanding by pulling together several details.

Drawing conclusions helps you recognize ideas that are not directly stated.

Asking Questions
What details does the writer include and emphasize? How are the details related? Is there a pattern? What do the details mean all together?

WIND
Wind blowing my face Making my cheeks rosy red Its biting my nose And chilling through all my bones It is pushing me along

Lyric Poetry
A lyric poem expresses the poets thoughts and feelings about a single image or idea in vivid, musical language.

CONCRETE POETRY
The poet arranges the letters and lines to create a visual image that suggests the poems subject.

HOW DOES THE VISUAL IMAGE SUGGEST THE POEMS THEME? WHAT IS THE THEME/CONCLUSION?

HAIKU POETRY
A traditional form of Japanese poetry that is often about nature. The first line always has five syllables, the second line has seven syllables, and the third line has five syllables. Some poets combine multiple three-lined haiku poems that share the same meaning.
