Ballad

There once was a laddie whose name was Tammy.

All of Tammy's com-rads liked to make him mad.

Isn't that sad?

Well its not so bad, cause Tammys moving to Miami.

His com-rads are kind of sad.




Limerick


There once was a lady from France

She never learned how to dance

She went to a party

Where she met Marty

And there he taught her to dance




Haiku

The open road

The wind in my hair

Life is good


Sonnet


I'm not going to stay

I need to be free

A ray of light is drawing me

I need to be free

Some may disagree

But they can't stop me

Because I guarantee

I'm gonna be free

I'm gonna be free

Who knows, I could go to Tennessee

Where ever I go, you know I'm gonna be free

The road of life's been good to me

Because I was me

They finally agree

The main characteristics of romanticism are the love of nature, emotions, artist/the creator, nationalism, exoticism, and the supernatural. Romanticism really is just how you feel about anything.





Transcendentalism
