I have been learning to write a ballad. A ballad is a poem that had 4 lines per stanza. I had to use the ABCB poem pattern. The ABCB poem pattern is a poem style. Each letter represents a line. If the letters are the same it means that those lines are the same. Example of the last words in a stanza:
A - hungry
B - home
C - line
B - dome
You might have also seen some AABB poem patterns.
I had to plan what will be the main topic in each stanza and what words rhyme and what words I could use. Then I put them together to make the poem. I had lots of fun writing this poem and I can't wait to do another.
