Structure of Poetry, Punctuation, and Vocabulary • Two structures that are frequently used in poetry are couplets and stanzas. • A __________ is a pair of rhyming words. • A __________ is a group of lines that are meant to be read as a unit. • In “The Secret Heart,” each couplet forms a two-line stanza. His two hands were curved apart In the semblance of a heart. He wore, it seemed to his small son A bare heart on his hidden one. • Pay attention to punctuation – If there is not punctuation at the end of the first line continue reading until punctuation such as a comma or period. Notice the line is not complete until you read the second line of each couplet. • Kindled - v. stirred up or awakened • Semblance – n. Look or appearance • Read “The Secret Heart” which describes one man’s memory of a single vivid moment from his childhood.

  6. The Secret HeartRobert P. Tristram Coffin  • Across the years he could recall His father one way best of all.  • In the stillest hour of night The boy awakened to a light.  • Half in dreams, he saw his sire With his great hands full of fire.  • The man had struck a match to see If his son slept peacefully.  • He held his palms each side the spark His love had kindled in the dark.  • His two hands were curved apart In the semblance of a heart.  • He wore, it seemed to his small son, A bare heart on his hidden one,  • A heart that gave out such a glow No son awake could bear to know.  • It showed a look upon a face Too tender for the day to trace.  • One instant, it lit all about, And then the secret heart went out.  • But it shone long enough for one To know that hands held up the sun.
