  1. What dream or dreams do you want to write about?

  2. 1. Read through several links on this webpage:
    http://www.poetry4kids.com/blog/lessons/poetry-writing-lessons/

    Ten syllables in each line is often called iambic pentameter (meaning there are 5 "feet" of two syllables each, and the second syllable in each foot is stressed. Here's more explanation and some examples:

    Shakespeare's sonnets are written predominantly in a meter called iambic pentameter, a rhyme scheme in which each sonnet line consists of ten syllables. The syllables are divided into five pairs called iambs or iambic feet. An iamb is a metrical unit made up of one unstressed syllable followed by one stressed syllable. An example of an iamb would be good BYE. A line of iambic pentameter flows like this:

    baBOOM / baBOOM / baBOOM / baBOOM / baBOOM.

    Here are some examples from the sonnets:

    When I / do COUNT / the CLOCK / that TELLS / the TIME (Sonnet 12)

    When IN / dis GRACE / with FOR / tune AND / men’s EYES
    I ALL / a LONE / be WEEP / my OUT/ cast STATE (Sonnet 29)

    Shall I / com PARE/ thee TO / a SUM / mer's DAY?
    Thou ART / more LOVE / ly AND / more TEM / per ATE (Sonnet 18)
