Poetry is another method of expressing yourself artistically. Just like visual art, there are many different styles of poetry to explore. Earlier we discussed Gary Snyder's nature-inspired poetry. Wally McRae writes poems that tell stories of cowboy life and ranching. Hank Nelson's poems and songs focus on the hard work of loggers. The activities in this section present poetry that tells a story in a more relaxed and informal style. Try creating a story poem of your own that draws on your own experiences.
