Concrete Poem

1. Concrete poetry uses the words and the form of the poem to convey the same meaning so that
they are difficult to separate one from the other. Form is meaning.
2. Read the example, and then create your own concrete poem. Do not choose a simple object
such as a circle, pencil, or a table.


A
poem
can play
with the wind
and dart and dance
and fly about in the mind
like a kite in the cloudy white
sky at so dizzy a height it
seems out of reach but
is waiting to be
very gently
pulled
down
to
the
   page
            below
                                    by  a string
                                 of
                                                    musical
                                     words.
