I don't have to cover this but it would add to my lesson if I could. Authors have their reasons for writing, i.e. to inform, persuade, entertain, etc. I think poetry is a little different and authors of poetry have different reasons, perhaps. I'm having trouble finding information about the topic but figured I could post it here and at the least find some help brainstorming ideas. I've concluded that some poets write to entertain (nursery rhymes), to set to music, to tell a story (narrative),to perform, and can't come up with anymore. Are there more or a more explicit way to say these?

I think sometimes poetry becomes a way to share an experience - not necessarily to entertain or inform, but to share - like a "window to the soul" type of thing. It's a way for us to share feelings or have a type of conversation that goes beyond the text - just an idea.
