Poetry- Shape Poems

Happy 4th of July to everyone in America! (Okay so that was yesterday but I wasn't able to post yesterday.) Anyways, I'm posting yesterday's topic and doing today's too.

Anyways, today we're here to talk about shape poems. These poems are not only for the eye but for the ear as well. The form of the lines must have something to do with the subject of the poem that you describe in the work.

Some examples:

mOOn Over tOwns mOOn


They're mostly fun poems you can do. When writing them, it's probably easier to form into a shape because of the free movement of your hand/pen, but with a computer it might be alot harder. But one can do it, we had to form shape poems for a Lit. class once and it had to be on the computer. 

So, have you ever seen shape poems before? What's your favorite? Have you ever written one?
