- What’s your poem about?
- Do you want it to rhyme:
- If yes, write a first line:
- Count the syllables like this:
A dog sat on a log
A = 1
Dog = 1
Sat = 1
On = 1
A = 1
Log = 1
How many syllables in the first line?
- Do you want the second line to have the same 6 syllables?
- If you do, will the next line end with a word like ‘log’?
If so, here’s a trick.
Go through the alphabet so that you add each new letter in front of the ‘og’ sound.
B + og = bog; F + og = fog or FR + og = frog, and so on.
- You can keep this pattern of syllables and ‘og’ words for your whole poem or change the pattern.
- Play with the words; try out what works for you.
