Description

'I said I liked classical music.
It wasn't exactly a lie.
I hoped he would get the impression
That my brow was acceptably high.'

In this amusing poem, Wendy Cope imagines a first date from the perspectives of both the man and the woman, each of whom is unaware of the farce that unfolds.

In this lesson plan, students look at how the form, rhythm and rhyming scheme complement the poem, then try to write a poem of their own.
