Beautiful Noise

imagining what sounds look like and describing them in a poem

Student Writer Instructions:

After listening to “Beautiful Noise” by Neil Diamond, you are going to create a poem about a beautiful noise of your own. Use the interactive buttons below to help you choose a topic, or pick a topic of your own.

The brainstorm sheet will get your ideas organized and help you concentrate on the SOUND of your noise, rather than what you see.

Can you add a simile or two like Diamond did in his song?


Interactive Choices for Writing:

If you're struggling to begin your poem about life, click the button below for ideas for metaphors you might explore.

Where might you hear beautiful noises?
