  • A short, musical narrative song or poem.

  • Folk ballads, which usually tell of an exciting or dramatic episode, were passed on by word of mouth for generations before being written down.

The Indian removal actgave power to use force,to make the Indians retractpast Mississippi's course.

The Indians transplanted, wereleft to pursue their liferoaming free west of the river.Then later came the strife.

The Civil War had ended.White people wanted land.Farmers, miners, trappers, all movedwest to try their hand.

The timbermen and railroadersall helped to forge the way.Indian land, prime territorywas where they meant to stay.

The government had promised theIndian's salvation,so they signed a treaty to stayon a reservation.

In exchange they'd get a paymentbut promises weren't kept.In desperate fighting for redressmany tears were wept.

Well-armed and well-fed soldiers hadeffectively destroyedthe independent Indiansnow scattered and deployed.

Their way of life has disappeared,with it old traditions.Now living in a white mans worldunder new conditions.

It's so hard to find employment.They keep it all inside,malnutrition and dysfunctionalcohol, suicide.

Betrayed, their freedom stolen,they feel isolation.Indians endure their lives inquiet desperation.

Lyric poems
Lyric Poems

  • Poems, usually short, that express strong personal feelings about a subject or event.

  • A lyric poem does not tell a story but address the reader directly and portrays the poet’s feelings and state of mind. Poe’s “The Raven” is a lyric poem.

    “Dying” (aka I heard a fly buzz when I died )

    by Emily Dickinson

    I heard a fly buzz when I died;The stillness round my formWas like the stillness in the airBetween the heaves of storm.

Epic poetry
Epic Poetry

  • A long, narrative poem, written in a dignified style, that celebrates the adventures and achievements of one or more heroic figures of legend, history, or religion.

  • The Greek poet Homer’s “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey” are both examples of epic poetry.


  • Originally a Japanese form of poetry that has three lines and seventeen syllables. The first and third lines have five syllables each; the middle line has seven syllables. Traditionally, haikus are written about nature.


    Silver dawn awakesthe new day is born againinnocent and fresh


  • A light humorous poem with a regular metrical scheme and a rhyme scheme of aabba. It is usually five lines.

    There was a Young Lady whose chinResembled the point of a pin:So she had it made sharp,And purchased a harp,And played several tunes with her chin.- Edward Lear


  • A poem containing 14 lines. Sonnets have strict patterns of rhyme and usually deal with a single theme or idea.

  • Shakespeare wrote the most famous sonnets in the English language.

Shakespeare s sonnet 18
Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 18”

  • Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?

  • Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

  • Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

  • And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

  • Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

  • And often is his gold complexion dimmed;

  • And every fair from fair sometime declines,

  • By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;

  • But thy eternal summer shall not fade,

  • Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,

  • Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,

  • When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st.

  • So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,

  • So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
