Do you mean that you want to memorize poems in one read or in one sitting?

Have you seen these discussions?

I've done a lot of work with poetry since my disastrous showing in this event at the 2016 USA Memory Championship. My biggest mistake there was trying to memorize the entire poem in the 15 minutes alloted, and I wrote down a LOT of words, but almost every line had either missing/wrong punctuation/capitalization, or I mixed up similar words (the = that, over=beyond), and the scoring of the event is strict, in that if you miss a single comma or semi-colon, or get a word wrong, you receive zero points for the entire line. If you're trying to memorize a poem for oral presentation, you don't need to worry about punctuation/capitalization quite so much.

Now I try to create at least two images for each line of poetry but could use more or less depending on the contents and length of the line. I put my images on my first locus for the first line of the poem, then move on to the second locus and put images there for the second line, etc. I use predetermined images for punctuation, e.g. a soccer ball for "period", a trowel (like a small shovel) for "comma", etc.
