I have to write a poem about a memory and it says include a sentence of a question or feeling you had at that time and i don't quite get that. Also i just forgot what a stanza(spelling?) written like. Any help?
Thank you!

    It's asking you to have one sentence expressing a feeling or question you had at the time you're remembering.

    For instance, if I were writing about a family Thanksgiving, I might say something about the warm, affectionate feelings I had about my family.

    There are no rules for the length of a stanza -- unless you're writing in a strict form like a sonnet.

    Basically, there are no rules, except the rhyming scheme and meter.

    I like that Wiki article.

    Good question.
