A Student's Sestina Poetry Printable
A sestina is a poetry form with six stanzas of six lines each and a short three lined stanza at the end called an envoi. Each line ends with one of six words.
I wrote "A Student's Sestina" about a student who would rather ride a skateboard than study. When I shared this with students, some said, "I didn't know that poetry could tell a story." We analyzed the poem for the elements of story: characters, setting, problem, and resolution.
