Poetry, like music, has a rhythm. In music, the rhythm is made by the instruments but in poetry it is created by syllables.
Syllables are the number of vowel sounds that make up a word.
For example, in the word butterfly there are three syllables.
But - has the U vowel sound
ter - has the E vowel sound
Fly - has the I vowel sound
There are two types of rhythm in poetry, regular and irregular.
Regular rhythms have repeating numbers of syllables in each line or each verse.
Irregular rhythms show no pattern in terms of the syllables.
TASK 1: Looking back at yesterday's poem. Can you count the syllables in each line? Do you notice a pattern? Is it regular or irregular?
Task 2: Try writing two sentences that make sense and have the same number of syllambles.
There was a clever dog. - 6 syllables
The dog sat on a log. - 6 syllables
See how many pairs of lines you can make with the same number of syllables.
