Exercise: Poetry

Try this with your patients: Click here to find a long list of poetry words. If you like, print the list, cut out each word and place them into a container. Have patients select a small handful of words (10-15 is usually a good amount). They may use these words to create a poem. Allow 15-minutes for poem-making. Once complete, ask them to recite their poems twice. Often the first read is tentative, but a second read will likely convey the depth of meaning reflected in the poem.
