Two-Voice Poems A two-voice poem is a poem that weaves together two distinct voices or perspectives. It is most often formatted in two columns, one speaker in the left column and one in the right column. Sometimes the poem alternates speakers, sometimes the speakers overlap (See “A Neighborly Dispute” and Paul Fleishman’s “Honeybees” for examples). The speakers in a two-voice poem can be different people, perspectives, personalities, objects, nature, animals, etc. Anything that allows for two different opinions or perspectives can be the subject of a two-voice poem! At this station, you will compose one two-voice poem. If you want, you can work with a partner—one person writes one voice and the partner write the other—just make sure each person leaves the station with a poem. You will have 10 minutes to write your poem. Make sure you save your poem for your poetry portfolio. Here are a few examples that you might turn into a two-voice poem:
