Tips on Creating a Fabulous Baby Shower Poem
A poem can be used for favors, invitations, gifts and games. It can stir emotions; create lasting memories, cause smiles and maybe even tears. Poems are words of the heart written down for us to contemplate.
Although poem writing is a talent and skill that develops over time and practice, anyone can put one together with a little thought and effort.
Poems Do Not Always Rhyme:
They can be funny, serious, heartfelt, or off the wall.
The first part of making a fabulous poem is to know what your objective is. I have compiled some questions to help you get started on writing a fabulous poem.
Think of who you are writing to:
Are you addressing the mother, baby, or guest?
What is your focus of the poem? Is it to give a gift or favor? Are you using it as part of a game? Is it on the invitation?
Is there a theme involved?
What is the message you want to deliver?
Once you have these questions answered, you are ready to put your poem together. Organize your answers on a piece of paper to review.
Now you must choose the type of poem to write. There are many technical poem names that you might not remember from those high school English classes.
Limerick, haiku, free verse, cinquain, narrative, and lyric style poems can all be used to write a great poem for your party.
Confused about now? Don't worry, I've gotcha covered.
The quickest way to refresh on poem terminology is to head over to PBS kids website, because they explain the different kinds of poems in simple language that is easy to understand.
Choose your favorite type of poem from the list. Rhyming can be a little easier to write than poems that do not rhyme. The instructions at PBS Kids are easy to follow so it should not be too hard to write.
Focus your poem on the answers of your subject and purpose. Your creativity will start to blossom as you brainstorm different possibilities for wording to use. Let your mind flow and write everything down that pops into your mind. You can always edit later, it is important to let your thoughts flow as easily as possible.
