This Free Poetry Worksheet Bundle Is Perfect for Your Poetry Unit
Haiku, limerick, ode, and more!
Learning to read, appreciate, and write poetry can be such a joyful experience in the classroom. But that last one is probably the trickiest. To help you out, we’ve created eight different worksheets covering common poetry types. We’ve provided background on the poetry types, examples, and space and directions for students to write their own. So if you’re getting ready for your poetry unit, you’re going to want this poetry worksheet bundle!
Try the “I Am” poem template
The “I Am” poem worksheet includes sentence starters to guide student writing. Remind them to start and end with the same sentence.
Write an autobiography poem
This one is also very guided, but it’s a great intro to poetry. We’ve included instructions below each line.
Get the printable acrostic worksheet
Students can use our template to write acrostic poems with their names, seasonal words, or vocabulary words from science or social studies for a nice cross-curricular activity.
Use our haiku worksheet
Because haiku have syllable requirements, we’ve added those below each line to help students out. There’s room for them to write three haiku.
Learn how to write a limerick
In addition to syllable requirements, limericks have a rhyme scheme, so we have line-by-line instructions on this one as well.
Try the worksheet on how to write an ode
An ode is essentially a tribute to a person, thing, or event. Lots of space for this one!
Teach your class how to write a couplet
Couplets end in a rhyming word, so we’ve created boxes at the end of each line as a reminder. We recommend having students select their rhyming words first.
Try your hand at blackout poetry
For the blackout poem, we pulled a page from J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan . (New to blackout poetry? Read this article .)

20 Easy Poetry Writing Prompts and Exercises
Although I mostly write fiction now, I started out writing poems. My MFA is even in poetry. I’ve taught beginning poetry workshops at university and also in some fairly unusual settings.
I know a lot of people can use ideas for poems, poetry writing prompts, and inspiration. Even if you write poetry all the time, one of these idea starters might spark your muse or take your writing in a fresh direction. And if you’re a teacher—whether you teach creative writing, English, or grade school—you might be able to adapt one of these for your class!
My favorite thing about poetry is that there aren’t any real rules about how to write a poem. When you find your creative inspiration—whether it’s love, life, or something else—you can just let the words flow. (You can always shape it up later.)
Here are some idea starters, prompts, and exercises that have worked for me before as a poet. You might want to pin or bookmark them for future reference!
1. Pick a song on your iPod, phone, or a playlist at random and let it influence you as you quickly write a first draft of a poem.
2. Go to a café, library, or fast food restaurant. Sit where you can see the door. Write a poem about the next person who walks in.
3. You can also do this in a public place where there are a lot of people talking: write a poem based on an overheard conversation.
4. Write a poem about a wild animal. Mary Oliver, who passed away recently and who was such a great talent and inspiration, has written many poems like this, including “The Hermit Crab,” “ The Shark ,” and “ Wild Geese .”
5. Write a poem inspired by a piece of art. (By the way, the word for a poem or literary work inspired by visual art is ekphrasis . Pretty cool, right?)
6. Write a poem with a refrain: a line or a few lines that repeat, like the chorus of a song.
7. This isn’t the easiest poetry-writing exercise…but I’ve gotten some good poems this way!
Set your alarm for two hours earlier than you usually wake up. Put a notebook and pen next to your bed. When you wake up, free-write for about fifteen minutes. (“Free-writing” means “writing down whatever pops into your head, without thinking too hard about it.”) If you woke up in the middle of a dream, use the dream as inspiration; otherwise, just write whatever comes into your head. Go back to sleep. Later, turn your free-writing into a poem.
8. Write a poem that’s an open letter to a whole group of people.
9. Write a poem that’s a set of directions or instructions.
10. Write a poem about a food. The poet Kevin Young has many examples to inspire you, including “Ode to Gumbo”:
11. Write a poem in which every line begins with the same word. You can change that in revision…or maybe you won’t want to.
12. For this one, you’ll need to either write in a notebook or journal, or on your phone. Go to a store that would be a weird place to write a poem—like a convenience store, a department store, or a drugstore—and write a quick poem.
13. Write a poem that focuses on one color. Federico García Lorca’s poem “Somnambulist Ballad,” translated from the Spanish, or Diane Wakoski’s poem “Blue Monday” might inspire you.
14. Pretend you’re a fictional character from a book, movie, or TV show. Write a poem in their voice.
15. Write an acrostic poem. The first letter of each line spells out a word vertically down the left-hand side of the page. Even for serious poets who would never try to publish an acrostic poem, this is a great exercise to get creative juices flowing.
16. lose your eyes, flip through a book, and put your finger on a page. Whatever word you’re pointing at, use it as a poem title and write that poem.
17. Write a poem late at night, by hand, by candlelight.
18. Fill a page with free-writing using your non-dominant hand. This can help you tap into less rational, more creative thought patterns.
19. Write a poem with very long lines. Walt Whitman’s collection Leaves of Grass might inspire you.
20. Write a poem saying goodbye to someone or something. It could be a happy poem, a sad poem, or both.
I hope you enjoyed this list of creative writing exercises and poetry prompts!
Would you like some more ideas? My book 5,000 Writing Prompts has 80 more poetry-writing exercises in addition to the ones on this list, plus hundreds of master plots by fiction genre, dialogue and character prompts, and much more.
Do you have a method or exercise that inspires you? Let us know in the comments! I’ve said it before, but I learn so much from the comment section, and I always appreciate it. Thanks for reading, and happy writing!
13 thoughts on “ 20 easy poetry writing prompts and exercises ”.
I took a class I thought was on creative writing but the instructor turned out to be a poet. She had us write a short story about a snow storm. She gave us specific things that had to be in it, like a snow shovel and various other objects. Over the next few meeting we condensed the story down until we had the basis for a poem. At the end of the semester, after we had moved on to other things, she asked me if she could submit my poem in a contest for submission in the school’s literary publication. I did not win butI I was thrilled to be nominated. I did however, have a haiku poem in that publication. At the time, I was disappointed the class was slanted more to poetry than creative writing, but what I learned there helped me win some poetry contests along my journey.
Bonnie, I love it that something that started out disappointing turned out to have a silver lining! We really do learn from all kinds of writing.
Thank you for sharing this wealth of information! I have many methods of exercise when it comes to writing. Being creative in other ventures helps my writing and helps me move past “blocks.” I will write poetry or listen to music, but I find the most helpful is being outside, in my garden or simply playing fetch with my dog and looking around at nature to inspire me.
Hi, Savannah! Being outside inspires me, too, and it’s really easy for me to forget about that. I’m so glad you brought that up!
What a wonderful list. While I don’t (can’t?) write poetry, I do enjoy reading it. I had to laugh at #18. When I write with my non-dominant (left) hand I tend to write backward. Others need a mirror to read it, but I don’t. I will be back to try out a couple of your prompts. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Jo! I think anyone can write poetry, but that doesn’t mean everyone enjoys it, of course! That’s funny about writing backwards with your left hand—I don’t think I could do that if I tried. Thanks for reading, and commenting!
Thanks, for sharing this, and I took a creative writinh class in college and even found a website that has all sorts of poetry styles, and forms with examples of each one and definitions as well. It definitely helped me with my poetry, and I also read two books on wriing poetry as well.
Thank you so much!

Writing poetry is often a complete mystery to many young writers. The goal of poetry is to help the reader capture the experience you are working to portray. The first goal is to understand what you what the reader to encounter and then you plot the journey to get them there. Poetry is often bathed in the use of imaginary using metaphors and similes. A tip that worked will for me is to always focus on using concrete words rather than abstract words. Students will practice writing various forms of poetry with these worksheets.
Poetry Writing Worksheets:
The "I Am" - Mad Libs that are done in a poem style setting. I always love these.
Acrostic Form - Choose a topic for a poem. The topic should be specific, and at least seven letters long. Although I have seen as little as five letters work, but a great deal of thought has to be done by students.
Pyramid Sormat - A pyramid poem follows a very specific format, and makes the shape of a pyramid on the page.
Write In Sensory Tone - Finish the poem by filling in the blanks with words phrases. Try to use phrases for lines 2 through 5.
Writing a Color - Brainstorm. Write down everything you can think of your color has to do with each of the senses listed.
Part 2 of It - Write your color on every line in the left-hand column. Complete the poem by filling in the blanks. Use your notes all the time.
The Autobiographical Poem - Put some thought into you and pay attention to the parts of speech that are indicated throughout the entire worksheet.
Free Verse - It is an example of free verse, the only kind of poem that has no rules at all. It does not have rhyme or regular meter. Free verse typically relies on imagery, alliteration, etc. to convey meaning.
The "I Used To" - Explore your past with us. Maybe you have learned and moved away from bad habits.
Couplets - A couplet is two lines of poetry that are about the same length, and the last word of each line rhymes. Poems can be made up of multiple couplets.
Write a Shape - A shape poem (also called concrete) is a poem in which the shape of the words on the page create the shape of the thing that the work is about.
On Your Own - Now you try to write a shape poem. Draw the shape of your subject in the space at the bottom of the page. Brainstorm what you would like to say about your subject.
Tanka - Tanka is a form of poetry that is almost 1200 years old. It is like haiku in that there is a strict format for how many syllables can be on each line. But Tanka poems are characterized by metaphorical language like simile, metaphor and personification.
Writing Limericks - A limerick is a poem that is five-lines long. It also has a specific rhyme and meter. The rhyme scheme is AABBA, and the first, second and fifth lines have three feet each with the following stressed (S) and unstressed (U) syllables: USUUSUUS.
The Cinquain - A cinquain is a poem that is five lines long, and has the following syllable pattern: 2, 4, 6, 8, 2.
Writing Poems with Alliteration - Alliteration is the intentional repetition of consonant sounds in words that appear close to each other.
You Decide - Decide on the technique you would like to use and then get to work on writing.
The Step of Writing Poetry
Here are the steps for writing high quality and well thought out poetry that will attract an audience:
The very first step to writing a poem is to find inspiration. Poems without any inspirations are not as full of feelings as they should be. Look around and find out what you want to write about. It could be your personal experience or a cause that you feel for. You can also write a poem to someone.
Choose The Type
Once you are done with the main theme of your poem, it is time to decide what type it will be. Poems have no limits. You can write any sort of poetry that you like. You also have the choice to choose between rhyming poetry and non-rhyming poetry. Prose poetry is also an option. The type of poem completely depends on the poet.
Poetry is always descriptive. It brings awareness to small details. Make sure that you have a good observation of whatever it is that you are writing about. Poems open a completely new perspective on some topics. Write descriptively. Descriptions evoke the feelings in the readers. Without descriptions, your poem will not be able to make a mark on the readers.
Create Rhyming Words
If you have decided your poetry to be rhyming, then you must give yourself enough time to come up with good rhyming words. Think of the words that are related to your topic and they rhyme. You can look for rhyming words in some book or the internet as well. It will provide you with plenty of options.
Recite The Lines
It is important to recite the lines while writing them. This is because it will let you know how your poem sounds. You can then go back and make any amendments to the lines.
Decide When You Are Finished
Poetry has no limits. It is completely dependent on the writer. It is your decision to make when you want to end your poem. You should decide how long you want your poem to be. Make sure that the last stanza is impactful.

How to Write a Haiku
It is easy to learn to write a haiku, but it can take a lot of practice to learn how to do it well. This lesson will give you the basics for writing your own haiku. It’s up to you to practice by writing a lot of them so you will get very good at it.
What is a Haiku?
A haiku is an unrhymed three-line poem. It is based on a traditional Japanese poetic form. Though there are different ways to write haiku, the traditional pattern in English is to write the first and last lines with five syllables each, and the middle line with seven syllables. In other words, the pattern of syllables looks like this:
Line 1: 5 syllables Line 2: 7 syllables Line 3: 5 syllables
Here’s another way to visualize the same thing:
1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5
Most often, haiku poems are about seasons or nature, though you can write your own haiku about anything you like. If you don’t want to write about nature, and would prefer to write haiku about candy or sports, that is perfectly okay.
One more thing to keep in mind is that the last line of a haiku usually makes an observation. That is, the third line points out something about the subject you are writing about.
Let’s see how we can put these few rules together get your started writing your own haiku poems.
Haiku About Seasons
Let’s say that you decide to write your haiku about a season. First you will want to select a season: spring, summer, fall, or winter. I’ve decided to write a haiku about winter, and I know that in the last line I will want to make an observation. I want to say that winter is almost here, but we aren’t quite ready for the snow. Maybe it’s that we haven’t raked the leaves off the front lawn and we need to do it soon before it snows.
I want to say all of this, but I want to do it in a pattern of 5, 7, 5. So I might say something like this:
Winter is coming. Snow will be arriving soon. We should rake the leaves.
If you count the syllables on your fingers as you read this poem, you will see that the lines have five syllables, seven syllables, and five syllables, just as they should.
Haiku About Nature
If you decide to write a haiku about nature, you will have many more subjects to choose from. You could write about animals, plants, the sky, the ocean, streams, the wind, and so on. Start by selecting a topic, and then decide what you want to say; what observation you want to make about it.
For example, I have decided to write a haiku about my cat. One thing I notice about my cat is that he sleeps a lot . In fact, I’m pretty sure he sleeps almost all night and all day. I’m not sure how he can be so tired. In any case, here is my haiku:
Tired cat sleeps all night. He needs lots of rest for a Long day of napping.
Just because most haiku poems are about seasons or nature doesn’t mean that’s all they can be about. If you want, you can even write funny haiku poems. One way to make a haiku funny is to have an unexpected last line. For example, if the last line says the opposite of what the reader expects, it becomes like the punchline of a joke. It also helps to write about a funny subject.
As an example, I decided it would be funny to write a haiku excuse for why I can’t turn in my homework. Here it is:
My homework is late. My dog ate it this morning. I sure like my dog.
Notice that this ending is unexpected. Most readers would expect the poem to end with something like “can I turn it in tomorrow?” or “I’m mad at dog” or something like that. By saying “I sure like my dog,” I am telling the reader something they don’t expect, which will hopefully make them smile.
Getting Started Writing Haiku
To begin writing haiku poems, just follow these steps:
- Select a type of haiku. Decide if you are going to write a seasonal, nature, or other type of haiku.
- Pick a topic. Select one specific season, item in nature, or something else you are going to write about.
- Think about what is different about your last line. What observation do you want to make?
- Start writing.
- Don’t forget to count the syllables as you read to make sure you’ve got the right pattern.
- Finally, “center” your poem on the page like the poems in this lesson.
