No body is helping me in writing or English, so Im going to post here, sorry. We saw the months of wicked weather, As day to painful night did turn, Waiting, huddled close together For the frozen sun’s return. Rewrite the first stanza to "Scott's Goodbye" as a free verse

    I don't know that much about poetry but I found this explanation of free verse: Free verse poems will have no set meter, which is the rhythm of the words, no rhyme scheme, or any particular structure.

    "Scott's Goodbye" has a rhyme scheme (weather & together, turn & return)

    In order to rewrite this stanza as a free verse, I would suggest you start by getting rid of this rhyme scheme.

    So, get synonyms to the last words, and change them to not rhyme?

    Or just switch up the order of the words. Be as creative as you can

    We saw wicked weather for months, As day to painful night did change, We huddled close while waiting For the frozen sun’s return.

    That's one way. I might even try to rewrite the poem without the same words or structure (4 lines), while keeping the same idea. Free verse is all about artistic expression

    The wicked weather remained for months; We watched, Waiting for the frozen sun to return; We huddled close, waiting, As painful night absorbed the day.
