1 “Do You Have Any Advice For Those of Us Just Starting Out“Do You Have Any Advice For Those of Us Just Starting Out?" Ron Koertge Give up sitting dutitotally at your desk. Leave your home or apartment. Go out right into the world. It"s all appropriate to bring a notebook but a cheap one is ideal, with peras the shade of weak tea and also on the front a kitten or a room ship. Avoid any enclosed room where more than 3 people are wearing turtlenecks. Beware any snow-covered chalet through deer tracks across the muffled tennis courts. Not surprisingly, libraries are a great area to create. And the perfect location in a library is near an aisle where a son a year or 2 old is playing as his mommy browses the ranks of the dead. Often he will pull publications from the bottom shelf. The title, the author"s name, the brooding photo on the flap expect nopoint. Red book on black, gray book on brvery own, he builds a tower. And the better it gets, the larger he grins. You who asked for advice, listen: When the tower falls, be like that boy. Laugh so loud everybody in the people frowns and claims, "Shhhh." Then start aget.

2 Overview to Poetry Billy Collins I ask them to take a poem and hold it up to the light choose a shade slide or press an ear against its hive. I say drop a mouse right into a poem and watch him probe his way out, or walk inside the poem"s room and also feel the walls for a light switch. I desire them to waterski throughout the surchallenge of a poem waving at the author"s name on the shore. But all they want to perform is tie the poem to a chair via rope and torture a confession out of it. They begin beating it via a hose to discover out what it really means.

22 Rhythm: The method the emphasized and non-emphasized syllables work to from a beat. Poems, prefer this one, wright here the rhythm is regular from line to line, stanza to stanza, are said to be composed in meter.

*

23 Rhyme: A repetitive sound in the final stressed syllable of 2 or more lines, or within lines themselves. Rhyme is exactly how we as children initially learn that letter combicountries have actually consistent sounds, and also they are thus a source of pleasure..
