    Can I join? I love poetry! ^-^''''

    What's your favorite poem?

    Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost. I love Poe's work as well.

    I actually finished a poem a while ago. I can't find it. I'll post it later. ^-^

    (P.S: I've watched "Dead Poet's Society" as well in Language Arts class.)

    Here's a link:http://www.hbo.com/defpoetry/ I can't really explain it but many people express themselves here(some cuss BTW to express their feelings). Overall, it focuses on poetry and many who presented are really good.

    Oh, that is the name of the TV show. That sounds like a cool show. Too bad I don't have Cable Television. I'd like to watch it.

    There's a DVD for the first few seasons. Although we aren't suppose to watch stuff with cussing in school, my cool teacher found loopholes as long as it ties with the subject.^_^

    Yeah, that happens more in High School, but it happened often in Junior High. I just get over the Language as long as the movie is appealing. I'll probably go out and puck up the first few seasons.

    I'm gonna go ahead and post my riddle/poem:

    In the darkness of the night,
    With the full moon oh, so bright;
    How I come right after thee,
    Without any sympathy.

    Not bad. I was never good at writing Poetry. It is a good read, though. I tried learning.

    I still find it hard to believe you wrote that, because it's really good! ^-^''

    And the riddle is hard as well. Thumbs up!

    I finally found one of my poems.

    The Song of the Autumn Breeze

    Tender green leaves rustle
    As a crisp breeze blows.
    A slight chilling rush
    Blows me back.
    Through the mountains
    A faint whisper
    Calls out to me.
    Yet another breeze
    Stirs the silent leaves.
    A soft melody
    Echoes throughout my restless spirit.
    The chilling wind sings its song.
    The ballad
    Disrupts my thoughts.
    Calling me to the chorus
    Of the autumn breeze.

    Wrote this last year in 5th grade. This wasn't the original version. I can't find the original...

    That makes me think...
    Do you use a Rhyme Scheme?
    Yes! Sometimes!

    ^-^' Thanks. I don't like it as much, considering I was only in 5th grade. I write much better now.

    What's the rhyme scheme?
    It's more of a free-verse poem, but I did have a version with rhyme scheme. Lost that one too, though. ^-^'

    I like it as well. Anyway, anyone else use ryhme scheme?
    I use it sometimes, though I usually do free-verse, not because rhyming is hard; I find it quite simple. I'm just into free-verse more.

    Well if some people do find rhyming hard, they can use this.

    Whoa. That's neat. Wish I'd thought of it before. XP

    It would have really helped in 2nd grade when I couldn't think of a single rhyme. XP

    Yes, it's very helpful. I say use it if you can't think of anything.
