English - The City of Silence Activity 11

LO: To write a poem with a repeating pattern

To start the week we are going to write a poem with a repeating pattern.  Have a look through all of the work you did last week:

  • Combinations of places and abstract nouns;
  • Alliteration and the simple list poem.
  • Extending our ideas with adjectives, for detail;
  • Adding a character and clues about what it's like to be in your 'place;
  • Juxtaposition


Now think of a phrase that you can repeat, that includes a place and an abstract noun.

E.g: In the prison of silence; Through the mirror of despair; The dungeon of doom...


Activity Choice 1:

Using one of the combination phrases, use that line as a repeated phrase in a poem.  Try to include items from the bullet pointed list at the top.

Eg: I chose 'In the prison of silence'

In the prison of silence I watch the rain trickle down the glass,

In the prison of silence I hear a lonely car pass by, wheels sloshing through a puddle;

In the prison of silence the walls oppress the warm air, which clings to the skin;

In the prison of silence there are confused cats sitting on laptops.


Write your own and make it at least 10 lines long.


Activity Choice 2

Choose a selection of at least 6 different combinations and turn each one into a verse of 4 lines.  For example, write 4  'In the prison of silence' lines, then 4 'Though the mirror of despair' lines, then 4 'The dungeon of doom' lines, and so on.


Have a look at the document below, for ways you could start your verses.
