Roses are Red, and Violets are Purple: Poetry

Roses are Red, and Violets are Purple: Poetry


The best-known stories and tales were passed down orally, and many in iambic pentameter, a form of poetry. Poetry, a solely human experience, pulses through cultures and attempts to convey emotion and experience through words. Edgar Allan Poe, an American poet, once said, “Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.” While exploring the ins and outs of poetry, students discover the intricacies and double meanings of language.
