Write a Bio Poem
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     What is a bio poem? Bio is short for biography. A biography is the author's story of another person's life. A bio poem is like a biography. It's a poem written about someone else. The author writes the poem about a person, character, or animal. To write a bio poem, the author must know quite a lot about the subject.
 
2     Read the following bio poem. It's based on a character from the Oz series of books written by L. Frank Baum.
 
3     Dorothy Gale

Dorothy
 
4     Helpful, kind, caring, brave,
 
5     Sister to no one,
 
6     Lover of rainbows,
 
7     Who fears wicked witches,
 
8     Needs help getting home,
 
9     Gives hugs to her friends,
 
10     Dreams of seeing Auntie Em again,
 
11     Lives in Kansas
 
12     Gale
 
13     You'll be glad to know that bio poems tend to follow a pattern. If you follow the pattern, you will create your own bio poem in a short amount of time. You'll also be glad to know that bio poems don't rhyme. They don't have much rhythm, either. They are a lot like free verse!
