Read the attached poem about happiness. Notice how the poet uses her senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste) to describe happiness. Choose a different feeling from the attached list. Think about your feeling: - what does it look like? (this could be a color) - what does it sound like? - what does it feel like? - what does it smell like? - what does it taste like? Use your thoughts to write your own poem about that feeling. Don't forget to give your poem a title. Share your poem using the label tool.
