PART 1:

- Who invented clerihews? (2pts)

Edmund Clerihew Bentley, while he was a student

- What do they do? (2pts)

Shows the subject in an unusual point of view, with garbled and over simplified explanation.

- how long is a clerihew? (2pts)

Four lines. The first is usually the subjects name, and the last two are typically longer than the first two.

- what is it's rhyming structure? (2pts)

AABB, that is, the first two lines rhyme with eachother, and the second two lines rhyme with each other.

PART 2:

Write 2 cleriews!
- one about an HP character
- one about anyone else
(20pts)


Nymphadora Tonks
Injured herself in a mess of whacks and bonks.
While tripping and falling, all in good fun
We must wonder...will this trait be passed on to her young, infant son?


Bella Swan
Lost herself while Edward was gone.
As soon as she got out of her bed
Her only comfort was a voice in her head



PART 3:

How would you explain to someone how to write a clerihew?
Explain each step and how to write each line.
(12pts)


The first line is typically the subject's name.

Sirius Black

The next line is usually short, and always rhymes with the first.

Through his family tree out of whack.

The third line will be longer than the first two.

This would cause his mother to have all kinds of fits

The fourth line is about as long as the third, and rhymes with the third as well.

Luckily, shutting the curtain on her provided a quick fix.

And in the end we have:

Sirius Black
Through his family tree out of whack.
This would cause his mother to have all kinds of fits.
Luckily, shutting the curtain on her provided a quick fix.

PART 1:

- Who invented clerihews? (2pts)

A man by the name of Edmund Clerihew Bentley

- What do they do? (2pts)

It is a very specific kind of short biographical humorous verse.

- how long is a clerihew? (2pts)

It has four lines of irregular length (for comic effect); the third and fourth lines are usually longer than the first two

- what is it's rhyming structure? (2pts)

AABB where the first two lines rhyme and the third and forth line rhymes


PART 2:


Write 2 cleriews!
- one about an HP character
- one about anyone else
(20pts)


Dobby the house-elf
Was quiet content to be himself
He wore many socks, he wore many hats
and his ears, well lets just say were just like a bats!

Vanessa Carlton-Singer
She was quiet the winger
A piano she has she plays it well
and her songs are great and swell



PART 3:

How would you explain to someone how to write a clerihew?
Explain each step and how to write each line.
(12pts)



Clerihews have just a few simple rules:

-They are four lines long.
-The first and second lines rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other.
-A clerihew should be funny.

The first line states the subject

Our art Teacher Mr. Shaw

The second line is the same lenght as the first and rhymes with it

Really knows how to draw

The third line should say some thin about that person or thing

But his awful paintings

the Fourth line will be the same lenght as the thrid line and rhymes with it

Have caused many faintings.

So you end up with

Our art teacher, Mr. Shaw,
Really knows how to draw.
But his awful paintings
Have caused many faintings.

Part one

*The clerihew was invented Edmund Clerihew Bentley.
*They are intended to describe or talk about a person in a comical way.
*A clerihew is a 4-line poem.
*Its rhyming scheme is aabb--first two lines rhyme and second two lines rhyme.

Part two
2 poems

A girl in my year, Lavender Brown.
Frequently makes all of us frown.
She was always a bit of a ditz,
But when Ron dated her she lost her wits.

My mother's name is Richelle.
Her story is funny to tell.
She was always scared of bees and ants,
And whenever one came near her, she did a little dance.


Part Three

A clerihew is one of the simplest poems one can write. There is no need to worry about rhythm or counting syllables or words. It is a four line poem that is intended to describe a person in a comical manner.

Start with the first line. At the end of this line you will introduce the name of the subject.

I once knew a boy named Jim.

Then you'll proceed to the second line. This should rhyme with the first line.

Everyone really seemed to like him

The next two lines rhyme with each other and typically would include the punchline, if you will. The end result would be something like this:




I once knew a boy named Jim.
Everyone seemed to really like him.
He was really good at playing ball,
But he just couldn't do math at all.


:edit: It just occured to me that I forgot to include my sources (thankfully I know where I got my info.)

four lines

Luna Lovegood
Never quite could
Make up her mind
and was far to kind


Jasper Hale

A girl could ever ever get her hands on
Even though her almost killed Bella Swan


PART 3:

How would you explain to someone how to write a clerihew?
Explain each step and how to write each line.
(12pts)

I would tell them to just think of somebody. For example, if Snape came to your mind, you would probably think about his greasy black hair, or maybe that he is the potions master, or possibly even that he was a death eater. After you ponder for a second, try to think of words that rhyme. Another example, black rhymes with a few things, like snack, back, sack, lack. Also, you could try something like this.

Severus Snape
Wore a long, black cape

Now all that is let is the last two lines. Easy, huh?

PART 1:

Who invented clerihews? (2pts)
Edmund Clerihew Bentley

What do they do? (2pts)
They are a biographical humorous verse.

How long is a clerihew? (2pts)
Normally four lines in length. The third and fourth lines are usually longer.

What is its rhyming structure? (2pts)
AABB. The first two lines rhyme and then the last two rhyme.

PART 2:

Write 2 cleriews!
- one about an HP character
- one about anyone else
(20pts)

Hermione Granger
She has puffy hair and a smart brain,
She knew a History of Hogwarts before she got on the train,
Using Wit and Talent,
She became very valiant.

Superman
Superman could fly and soar,
As Clark Kent he was such a boar,
Using his powers to fight for good,
Just the way his father said he should.

PART 3:

How would you explain to someone how to write a clerihew?
Explain each step and how to write each line.
(12pts)

It has to be 4 lines in length with the first two lines and the last two lines to rhyme. Its easier if you start with one line and work on a rhyme for the last word then continue with your next one. Sometimes you might have to go back and try to fix the first line to rhyme the second. This is ok as it is a learning process and soon you will be better at it then me.

(12pts)

First decide who you're writing your poem on. The first line is usually just the person's name or a phrase including their name. The next line should describe the person, setting the theme for the rest of the poem. The first and second lines rhyme. The last 2 lines make the overall feeling humorous, sometimes making fun of the person. The last two lines should rhyme with each other as well.

PART 1:
- Who invented clerihews?

Invented and named after Edmund Clerihew Bentley.

- What do they do?
Show a particular topic in an unusual way. Used to make fun of people specially famous people.

- how long is a clerihew?
Four irregular lines. The last two are usually longer than the first two.

- what is it's rhyming structure?
It's AABB. Meaning that the first two lines rhyme with each other as well as the last two lines.


PART 2:
Write 2 clerihews!

1)
Ronald Bilius Weasley
was looking a bit peaky
Spiders wanted him to tap dance
he didn't want the chance.

2)
Miss Blake Lively
who acts so frequently
either as a New York elite
or as a Sisterhood sweet.

PART 3:
How would you explain to someone how to write a clerihew?
Explain each step and how to write each line.
First you must choose what you want to write about. Remeber it's only four simple lines. Keep in mind that the first two lines must rhyme. Like, Miss Hermione Granger, knows all about danger. Now that you have your two lines you move on to the last two. These two must rhyme as well. And writing a clerihew is as simple as that! Now you didn't think I was going to finish it for you?
