CONCRETE POEMS-taught by Georgia

Concrete poetry—sometimes also called ‘shape poetry’—is poetry whose visual appearance matches the topic of the poem. The words form shapes which illustrate the poem’s subject as a picture, as well as through their literal meaning.

Teacher  Response:Thanks, Georgia. Being the artistic one, I knew this form of poetry would suit you. I love the idea of the flight of the bee. You illustrate exactly what a concrete poem is meant to be. The concrete poems produced by your classmates show they were engaged with the idea. 

I couldn't resist sharing some of the favourite concrete poems I found online!
