Writing a diamond poem

Each student will write a diamond poem explaining or describing the topic of a story or theme and the emotions this topic evokes.

Each diamond poem will have one theme at the top of the diamond and its opposite theme at the bottom.

Each diamond poem will be accompanied by two illustrations -- one for each of the two themes.

Each element of the poem is written on a separate line and centered. The elements are:

Title of the poem

Theme

Two adjectives related to the theme at the top



Three gerunds related to the theme at the top

Two nouns that describe the theme at the top

Two nouns that describe the opposite theme

Three gerunds related to the theme at the bottom

Two adjectives related to the theme at the bottom

Opposite theme



See next page for a sample diamond poem on the theme of young love.
