-- David Mackler Egyptian Sense Poem

The participants who utilised the free verse approach often spent more time on the activity. This might indicate a closer engagement with, and deeper consideration of, the concept under scrutiny. Perhaps these poems therefore provide greater insight into the lived experience of the author. Regardless, they were characterised by a greater use of imagery and a more complex syntax and structure which produced more nuanced, and less consistently positive themes than the acrostic and sense poems.

Pupils can now write their own sense poem. Help them to choose their subject and allow them to refer to the senses you wrote on the board in the introduction. You may want to give each pupil a copy of the examples on the reverse of this lesson plan.

Examining great poetry leads to both a greater appreciation for poetry and, if encouraged appropriately, a desire to create original poetry. In this lesson, students share their personal definition of poetry and challenge and revise that definition as they read poems from selected authors. In addition to reading poetry, students listen to poems to examine how the sounds of language are used to create meaning and mood. Students then write their own nonsense poem using common poetic devices, such as alliteration, assonance, and consonance. Finally, students write a descriptive poem, share their poem with the class, and write a reflection of their experience writing their own poems.

5.2 The sense poems
I have put together a page of winning children’s poems by Fitzwilliam Primary School on the topic of Victorian child miners. They include lots of figurative language such as alliteration, personification, similes and metaphors, and different poem forms such as acrostics, list poems and senses poems. We perceive poetry as both art and data. Before entering the field we were conscious of the way in which (as reflected in the debates above) poetry is often placed on a pedestal (LEGGO, 2008, p.170)—portrayed as particularly nuanced and as requiring a sophisticated and specific knowledge, vocabulary and intellect to write well. We realised that as a result some participants would struggle with the idea of writing a free verse poem in a short space of time. We communicated to students that we were not looking for perfectly crafted "works of art" and that we do not necessarily see poetry as highbrow or complex; anyone can write it as it is "earthy [and] rooted in everyday experience" (ibid.). Nevertheless, to encourage the students we offered the option of either writing a free style poem or utilising a formal poetry structure. Acrostic poems, where the first letter of each line spells out a word, was one structure provided. Students were helped to begin their poem by using the letters H.O.P.E. The second formal structure provided to students was a "sense poem" where students constructed their poem by completing the phrases: Hope tastes like ... Hope sounds like ..., Hope smells like ..., Hope looks like ..., Hope makes me feel ... each on a separate line. The majority of participants who completed this activity chose to utilise a formal structure. Ten students wrote a free verse poem. []

Senses Poems - Modern Award-winning Senses Poetry : All Poetry

Many of my poems are inspired by the senses. Poetry is led by the senses in the respect that we write poems about what we see, hear, touch, smell, taste and feel automatically. The senses are a part of our life and influence every thought that passes through our mind, so senses poetry is far more natural than we sometimes realise.
However, many poems are very specifically focussing on the senses, and I have written some of these senses poems specifically for use in schools to encourage children to use their senses when studying something to write poems about. This category therefore includes all of my poems which are specifically about the senses. I have included a brief description of each poem, together with details of what figurative writing and poetic techniques it includes in the hope that you will find something to suit your purposes easier.

Five senses Poem: A Science Poem

Below we discuss the key findings from our analysis of the acrostic poems and the sense poems as well as the implications of these for our understandings of the meanings young people attribute to hope. We follow this with a discussion of the more nuanced free verse poetry. Reflecting principles of poetry inquiry, we hope that the poems we have selected to represent the data will stimulate a response in the reader—encouraging them to feel, see, even taste what the participants describe.

Imagination and description are a fantastic combination, that will result in some brilliant, original sense poems!

The seasons are cram-packed full of exciting sights, sounds and smells that will help pupils create an amazing sense poem in no time at all. Perhaps your pupils have had a wonderful experience in the summer holidays, where the smell of BBQs and sound of children laughing is still fresh in their minds. But with Autumn's arrival imminent Bonfire Night, Halloween and the change-over of seasons, brings to mind beautiful-coloured leaves, crunchy frost and darker evenings. All of these ideas, and many more, are fantastic ways to get pupils engaged with their senses and ensure original (and brilliant) poetry!
