Like a song, Like a dream, there are verses to poetry.


Adding Verses
Hello! In this lesson we will be adding VERSES. I'm pretty sure that if you know songs/music, you know that they are split into verses, or PARTS. Like songs, there are verses in poetry. If your poem is very short, such as "Like a song, like a dream. There are verses to poetry," then you will not need verses. Yet long poems will be split up, for example:
Sing a song on Christmas morn,
Tra-la-la-la-la, Tweedle-eedle-ee.
Joyful children crowd around
won't you join our cheerful song?

Dance and dance at Christmas noon,
Tip-tap-tee, Tip-tap-too.
You can add your own steps too,
won't you join our happy dance?

Tell a story, it's Christmas night,
Once upon a time, Happily ever after.
You can listen, sit down please,
won't you join our circle of friends,
because it's a joyful Christmas day!
So there you can see how there are spaces in the poem (which can be sung as a song if you'd like, please credit, I made it myself). These are the poem verses. Of course, if you split the poem differently it will look and sound stranger, it's very easy to tell when a verse is badly split. So this is the lesson on POEM VERSES :)
