The Last Pages of My Notebook
Always Hold a List of Books to Read
by Amy LV
Students - A poem can be structured as a list. One thing after another, poem lists name parts of the world in different ways. Sometimes such lists rhyme, sometimes not.
Think of something in your own life that is list-able. Names of favorite pets? Books you will never forget? Best Halloween candies? Try one of your lists out as a poem...

Here are a couple of more poems in the form of lists.
To Do List
I have mentioned Georgia Heard's FALLING DOWN THE PAGE: A BOOK OF LIST POEMS before, but because it is chock full of list poems, I mention it again. If you are looking to add to your own pile of list poems, don't miss this book.
