How Do You Write a Poem?

Not everyone is creative and might find it hard to write their own poems. In this case, simply let them start their Mother’s Day poems with things they like about Mom.

Otherwise, maybe these tips on how to write a poem might help.

  • Read a lot of poetry
  • Listen to poetry
  • think of a topic
  • try to tell a story
  • choose words carefully
  • Embrace tools
  • Use Line Breaks Deliberately
  • Revise


If these tips on how to write a poem were too vague for you, maybe you should try an elvenie.

But you might wonder, what is an elvenie? An elvenie is a short poem with a given pattern of eleven words.
My son had to study it in 3rd grade and enjoyed it. The pattern makes it easier for you to create your own poem.

Here is the elvenie pattern for you to follow as well:

Row 1: 1 word – a thought, an object, a color, a smell, or the like
Row 2: 2 words – what does the word from the first row do?
Row 3: 3 words – where or how is the word of row 1?
Row 4: 4 words – what do you mean?
Row 5: 1 word – conclusion: what results from all this? What is the outcome?

This and more information on the elvenie including examples can be found here. Give it a try, it is so much fun!

‘O’ means only that she is growing old
‘T’ is for the tears she shed for me
‘H’ is for her heart out of purest gold
‘E’ is for her eyes, with love shining
‘R’ means right and right she always be
Together it is spelled MOTHER, a word that means the world to me.
