Compose your own found poem based on a descriptive literary passage.
First select a passage and then pick out descriptive words, phrases and lines. You can highlight, circle or underline
Then arrange and format the excerpts to compose your own poem. Make it look like a poem, i.e., title, short lines, stanzas.
This process of recasting the text in a different genre helps writers become more insightful readers and develop creativity in thinking and writing. Writing tip: you’ll be primarily identifying nouns and verbs for use in your poem.
