Many people are turned off by poetry because they are unsure of how to approach it or read it. The best tip when approaching poetry is to read it just like you would any other text: use the punctuation marks to indicate when you should pause
or stop or take a breath. If there is no punctuation in a poem, that may be for a reason - consider how the lack of punctuation may impact the poet's message. When you come to the end of a line, unless there is a period, continue reading
the next line as if it were a continuation of the first line, just as if you were reading a story or essay.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star / how I wonder what you
are / Up above the world so high, / like a diamond in the sky.
The forward slash (/) indicates that there was a new line, but we read it as if it just continued like a sentence.
