"The Road Not Taken"


By Robert Frost

Poem Frame
Write like Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,


And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,


And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay


In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Time Poem Example:


Time
Time is a circus, always packing up and moving away.
And sorry I could not join,
And be an eternal performer,
And dance and sing as I wander
To the wondrous place where the world ends.
Then upon arriving and beholding the end,
And discovering the hard truth of time,
Would I truly choose eternity?
Without family and friends,
What beauty would I see?
Yet knowing how I long for immortality
Somewhere beyond the realm of reality
Where the circus stays for all eternity,
I know I would still choose to stand,
And watch as the circus leaves these lands.

Poets Note: Once I got started, I was able to start some of my own verses and
didnt need to follow the poem frame, but I highly suggest using the frame to write
the beginning and end of your poem. To make your poem flow, try to end your
verses the way Robert ends his verses. I made my poem shorter than Roberts
poem, but thats okay. There wasnt anything else to say, so I didnt need to write
more stanzas.

"The Writer"
By Richard Wilbur

In her room at the prow of the house


Where light breaks, and the windows are tossed with linden,
My daughter is writing a story.

1
2
3

I pause in the stairwell, hearing


From her shut door a commotion of typewriter-keys
Like a chain hauled over a gunwale.

4
5
6

Young as she is, the stuff


Of her life is a great cargo, and some of it heavy:
I wish her a lucky passage.

7
8
9

But now it is she who pauses,


As if to reject my thought and its easy figure.
A stillness greatens, in which

10
11
12

The whole house seems to be thinking,


And then she is at it again with a bunched clamor
Of strokes, and again is silent.

13
14
15

I remember the dazed starling


Which was trapped in that very room, two years ago;
How we stole in, lifted a sash

16
17
18

And retreated, not to affright it;


And how for a helpless hour, through the crack of the door,
We watched the sleek, wild, dark

19
20
21

And iridescent creature


Batter against the brilliance, drop like a glove
To the hard floor, or the desk-top,

22
23
24

And wait then, humped and bloody,


For the wits to try it again; and how our spirits
Rose when, suddenly sure,

25
26
27

It lifted off from a chair-back,


Beating a smooth course for the right window
And clearing the sill of the world.

28
29
30

It is always a matter, my darling,


Of life or death, as I had forgotten. I wish
What I wished you before, but harder.

Example I Am Poem
I Am
By Mrs. Sutliff
In the woods behind my house,
Underneath an old oak tree,
I am writing a story.

1

3

The woodpecker that forages nearby


Startles and flies away
When I suddenly voice my thoughts aloud.

4
5
6

The woodpecker returns to the tree.


In short little bursts, it creates a hole
And another, and another, until at last

7
8
9

The woodpecker finds what it seeks:


A single small worm hidden deep within.
Then with renewed vigor, he starts again.

10
11
12

Pecking away at that old oak tree,


Loud and clear for all to hear,
The short little bursts of hard work.

13

15

Poem Frame

Describe it so that your readers feel like they are there.

see, hear, smell, or feel if they watched you write.
Use specific details to draw the reader in.

Now, introduce your metaphor.


Tell about the animal / machine.
What does it do that reminds you of how you write?

Write the end of your poem.


What do you still want to say?
What message do you want to leave with your reader?

Editing Checklist

EDITING MARKS
The following are commonly used editing marks when proofreading
writing. Use these marks during part of the "Revision" stage in the
writing process, and for the "Editing" stage as well. Editing marks
should also be used during peer-editing. Take a look at the following
marks to see how they are used. Writers double space their writing so
that they can easily insert editing marks and make changes.
