NARRATIVE POETRY W H AT I S N A R R AT I V E P O E T RY ? Narrative poems are some of the oldest forms of literature and are simply poems that tell a story Before there were printed books, people would use narrative poems to tell stories (epic poetry, for example) Narrative poems are known for their use of rhyme, rhythm, repetition, and vivid imagery in order to make the story easier to remember and share E XA M P L E E D G A R A L L E N P O E Annabel Lee (Part 1/2) It was many and many a year ago, In a kingdom by the sea, That a maiden there lived whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee;

And this maiden she lived with no other thought Than to love and be loved by me. I was a child and she was a child, In this kingdom by the sea, But we loved with a love that was more than love With a love that the wingd seraphs of Heaven Coveted her and me. And this was the reason that, long ago, In this kingdom by the sea, A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee;

So that her highborn kinsmen came And bore her away from me, To shut her up in a sepulchre In this kingdom by the sea. E XA M P L E E D G A R A L L E N P O E Anabel Lee (Part 2/2) The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, Went envying her and me Yes!that was the reason (as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea) That the wind came out of the cloud by night, Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. But our love it was stronger by far

than the love Of those who were older than we Of many far wiser than we And neither the angels in Heaven Nor the demons down under the sea Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side

Of my darlingmy darlingmy life and my bride, In her sepulchre there by the sea In her tomb by the sounding sea. E XA M P L E TAY L O R S W I F T Many songs tend to tell a story of some kind Taylor Swift songs are especially known for doing this E XA M P L E TAY L O R S W I F T E XA M P L E TAY L O R S W I F T Love Story (Part 1/2) So I sneak out to the garden to see you. We were both young when I first saw you.

We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew I close my eyes and the flashback starts: So close your eyes, I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air. Escape this town for a little while. Oh, oh. See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns. See you make your way through the crowd And say, "Hello." 'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter, Little did I know...

And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet." But you were everything to me, That you were Romeo, you were throwing I was begging you, "Please don't go." pebbles, And I said... And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet." And I was crying on the staircase Begging you, "Please don't go." And I said... Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone. I'll be waiting; all that's left to do is run. You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess,

It's a love story, baby, just say "Yes. E XA M P L E TAY L O R S W I F T Love Story (Part 2/2) Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone. I'll be waiting; all that's left to do is run. You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess. It's a love story, baby, just say "Yes". Romeo, save me. They're trying to tell me how to feel. This love is difficult but it's real. Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess. It's a love story, baby, just say "Yes". Oh, oh, oh. I got tired of waiting Wondering if you were ever coming around. My faith in you was fading When I met you on the outskirts of town.

And I said... Romeo, save me. I've been feeling so alone. I keep waiting for you, but you never come.
