Tips on writing a teacher appreciation poem

Writing a teacher appreciation poem means expressing in a few lines what you feel about your teacher. Take care of the following points:
  • Tips on writing a teacher appreciation poemIntonation and syllables.
  • Rhyme (although poems can of course be unrhymed). Never force a rhyme, rather write without rhymes!
  • Including the teacher’s name.
  • Don’t make it too long (about 10-15 lines will do).
  • Be sure to know the actual meaning of all words used.
  • Don’t exaggerate in your comparisons or other literary licenses.
This is a poet’s article on poem writing…
You've got to be open and brave and curious. A famous poet said “Whenever I'm asked, "When did you become a poet?" I'm always tempted to ask, "When did you stop?, When did you stop taking risks?” In order to grow as a writer, you've got to be willing to risk it all every time you sit down to write. We're all born poets. We all enjoy the sounds of language. Every new parent knows that. We're all born with the need to "sound our barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world" as Whitman would have it. Poetry is a natural part of our lives. It's not just something we have to memorize and recite in front of the class. Losing ourselves in a poem is one of the best ways of finding out who we are. The act of writing brings us to that point of discovery, of discovering on the page something we didn't know we knew until we wrote it.

Don't let reality cloud your imagination. Look up at the sky and find once again those long-tailed dragons and sailing ships. Wake up to the world as though you are seeing it each day for the first time. Find the wonder. Question the way things are. Imagine new choices. Write from the child in you. Style isn't how you write. It's how you do not write like anyone else. You don't need a degree to be a writer. It doesn't take teachers or textbooks to show you how to write. One learns how to write by writing. There is no other way.

…And this is a poem on poems:


“A Poem Is A Little Path”

A poem is a little path
That leads you through the trees.
It takes you to the cliffs and shores,
To anywhere you please.

Follow it and trust your way
With mind and heart as one,
And when the journey's over,
You'll find you've just begun.
