Time Clauses and Love Poems

Lesson

You can write love poems in time for Valentine's Day!

First read one I wrote:

When I met you, I was sad.

But now I am totally glad!

I love you, bunny,

Like I love tea and honey. 

My student wrote this one:

When you met me,

you said, "That's mine!" 

And you did a crime,

Cause you stole my heart. 

 

 So here are the directions:

Begin with a time clause. 

Time clauses are parts of a sentence that begin with Before, After or When.

    Before=what was first

    After= what was second

    When= at the time

Example:

"Before I met you, I cried."

        **this is the same as "I cried before I met you. "
             (first, I was sad, then secondly I met you)

 "When I saw you, I knew I was in love."

        ** this is the same as "I knew I was in love when I saw you."

           (The first moment I saw you, I knew I was in love.)

"After I left your house, I went home lonely." 

        ** this is the same as "I went home lonely after I left your house."

            (First I left your house, then secondly I went home lonely)


THEN:

Try to have some rhyming. Rhyming words sound the same like sad and glad.  

 

I would love it, if you could leave some poems in the comments. That would be really cool. Or if you have any questions about time clauses ask me!
