Four short chapters introduce everyday encounters with poetry, poetry as a means of expressing ideas, craft techniques (i.e., alliteration, simile and metaphor, rhythm and rhyme), and poetic forms (i.e., concrete, haiku, free verse). Sample poetry, set against full-bleed stock photos consistent with each poem's content, meaningfully illustrates each paragraph on technique. A poetry-writing activity is appended.
