When something that wasnt expected happens. Or
when the opposite of what is expected happens.
Example of irony in poetry
  • Ironic
  • To always want what you don't have...
  • When we were little we wished that we could be
    older, to be able to handle things easier and
    more bolder. We wished so much, that when we sat
    on a chair, our feet would touch the ground,
    instead of just hanging in the air. We longed to
    dress up and go out for real, instead of playing
    dress ups wondering how it might feel. We longed
    to be able to swim without help, in the deep
    end, to go out to movies and shopping with our
    best friend. But now that I am older, I wish I
    was a little girl, with cute little dimples and
    my hair in a twirl. I wish I was little, so that
    when I sat on a chair, my tiny feet were hanging
    in the air. I wish I was younger with my only
    problem a broken toy, so little I didn't know the
    pain of loving a boy. For then my soul wouldn't
    have been torn apart, I wish I was a little girl
    for toys are easier to mend then a broken heart.

Lyrical Poetry
  • Students go to lyrics.com or a lyric website and
    pick out a song that they feel is poetic.
  • Students write about their song, why they chose
    it and what it means to them.  Also, they must
    pick out 3 elements of figurative language,
    metaphors, similies, etc.
  • Create a word document with the lyrics- must be
    checked by Mrs. Dennis. Students may present
    lyrics and play music for the class. They show us
    the poetic elements that they have found and
    label them.

Saturday At The Canal                  
  • By Gary Soto- from The Norton Anthology of Modern
    Poetry- 2nd Edition
  • I was hoping to be happy by seventeen. School was
    a sharp check mark in the roll book, An obnoxious
    tuba playing at noon because our team Was going
    to win at night. The teachers were Too close to
    dying to understand. The hallways Stank of poor
    grades and unwashed hair. Thus, A friend and I
    sat watching the water on Saturday, Neither of us
    talking much, just warming ourselves By hurling
    large rocks at the dusty ground And feeling awful
    because San Francisco was a postcard On a bedroom
    wall. We wanted to go there, Hitchhike under the
    last migrating birds And be with people who knew
    more than three chords On a guitar. We didn't
    drink or smoke, But our hair was shoulder length,
    wild when The wind picked up and the shadows
    of This loneliness gripped loose dirt. By bus or
    car, By the sway of train over a long bridge, We
    wanted to get out. The years froze As we sat on
    the bank. Our eyes followed the
    water, White-tipped but dark underneath, racing
    out of town.  

  "Friday at Cary" By Bryan Still I was hoping
to be happy by seventeen. School was a roll call,
seven classes, and lunch. Our bands were not
heard playing, For our chances of winning the
game were slim. The teachers were too young and
enthusiastic to understand. The hallways were
rich with good grades and students slow to get to
class. A friend and I were talking by the
computers, Absorbed in the conversation- we were
supposed to be working. I felt confident because
college and scholarships were in my pocket. I
wanted to go there to college, Where new
freedoms awaited, like the breaking of chains. I
wouldnt break their trust, or the law. My hair
was gelled, gently rustling with every
movement Yet unaffected by cold, smiting
winds That bite your face on frosty, winter
days. I wanted to leave high school, To skip
those long, toiling years of work and
preparations. I wanted to get to college, my
adulthood my freedom.
