Poems could be such a joy to write and therefore are one the quickest and easiest writing activities out there! Not every person can write a 500 words story each day, but you can write a short poem, like a haiku or a Clerihew poem. Today we made a decision to have a look at perhaps one of the most creative types of poetry, shape poems! And because is also Lewis Carroll’s birthday we decided to take inspiration from Alice in the Wonderland today. So, carry on reading writing websites if you wish to learn the principles of shape poetry and find some situations of Alice into the Wonderland shape poetry!

Shape Poetry Tips

Before we start with the Alice when you look at the Wonderland shape poetry activity, here are a few strategies for writing shape poems:

  1. Before jumping in, the initial thing you must do is decide regarding the model of your poem and theme. For example, you probably will want to use a bat as the shape of your poem if you are writing a poem about vampires.
  2. Don’t over-complicate your shape with shadows and details. Ensure that it stays simple, only use outlines and basic shapes (you will see some situations below associated with Alice into the Wonderland).
  3. Plan your poem out before writing it into your shape. You can use a separate little bit of scrap paper to do this. You can then write it in a shape format when you are ready.
  4. Using a pencil, lightly outline or draw your shape onto your paper. Then write your words matching the outline. This will provide a guideline that is neat your poetry.

Now we know the principles of the game, let’s begin the activity! Using Alice into the Wonderland (books or movies) as a supply of inspiration, can you write a shape poem using the following objects?

  • Teacup
  • Cat
  • Clock
  • Rabbit
  • Hat
  • Now think of your very own shape.

You can get points for getting the following correct:

  • Following the shape of the object in your poem.
  • Using words connecting towards the shape of your poem.
  • Using ideas and details relating to the Alice into the Wonderland story.
  • Using descriptive or words that are emotional create a photo in your readers head.

That you need to use as a guideline if you need some inspiration or ideas here are some samples of Alice within the Wonderland shape poems

Teacup shape poem

Tea Party when you look at the woods that are murky.
Creatures from all over are invited.
Wear your best hat and bring your favourite dessert.
There’s loads of tea for all, rabbit, mat hatter…
And even those birds that are little.
So, come and join us for a great time.

Watching my every move.

Clock shape poem

Time ticking away. Tick tock, tick tock.
Cant go back.
Don’t wish to go forward.
I’ll just jump down a hole.
Enter a whole world that is new.
Where cats talk and rabbits wear clothes.
But don’t eat the cake!
as soon as I come back.
I’ll be whole!

Rabbit shape poem

Look out for the beasts that lurk within the woods.
And don’t allow the mad hatter scare you.
Find Alice before it is too late!
Now go RUN!
