  1. Before jumping in, the thing that is first should do is decide from the form of your poem and theme. As an example, you probably will want to use a bat as the shape of your poem if you are writing a poem about vampires.
  2. Don’t over-complicate your shape with shadows and details. Keep it simple, only use outlines and basic shapes (you will see some examples below associated with Alice in the Wonderland).
  3. Plan your poem out before writing it into the shape. You can make use of a separate piece of scrap paper to get this done. If you are ready, then you can write it in a shape format.
  4. Using a pencil, lightly outline or draw your shape onto your paper. Then write your words matching the outline. This may provide a guideline that is neat your poetry.

Tea Party in the woods that are murky.

And even those birds that are little.

Clock shape poem

Time ticking away. Tick tock, tick tock.
Cant go back.
Don’t desire to go forward.

Enter a whole “” new world “”.
Where cats talk and rabbits wear clothes.
But don’t eat the cake!
so when I come back.
I’ll be whole!

Rabbit shape poem

Go run little rabbit, run!

Be cautious about the beasts that lurk into the woods.
And don’t allow the hatter that is mad you.
Find Alice before it’s too late!
