Brief Planning Time.

Love That Poem!  -- Reading and Creating


If You Were Absent:




Vocabulary:






5. Poems in Love That Dog  and writing 


Inspired By poems

Read the poems, then for each, write an imitation. 














Poem #1 


The Red Wheelbarrow
William Carlos Williams, 1883 - 1963
so much depends
upon
a red wheel barrow
glazed with rain water


beside the white chickens.


Sample Imitations:

The Assignment by Ms. Dorsey

so much depends
upon

a sheet of lined paper

resting in a wire basket

upon the teacher's 
desk.





Hall Pass by Ms. Dorsey
so much depends
upon
a paper hall
pass
signed by
the teacher
as I squirm


And from students a few years ago:

So much depends
upon
the pigskin ball
with leather all over
beside the wide receiver.
          --Zac Smith

The Bumblebee
So much depends
upon
a small bumble
bee
striped with yellow and
black
sitting upon a yellow
flower
 --  Brennan Davis



Now write your own imitation of the So Much Depends poem.
You need to write only one stanza. 

Poem #2: 

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.





Poems by Ms. Dorsey inspired by Mr. Robert Frost:

Whose books these are I think I know.

She has gone to math class though;
I'll read one whether or not I oughter,
After all, it's Harry Potter.


Whose poem this is, 
I do not know.
I'd like to find that student though.
It's excellent and should be shared,
So if it's you,
Please let me know.



Now write your imitation of the Snowy Woods poem.
You need to write only one stanza. 






To here -- 3-26-15




The Disruptive Students
by Ms. Dorsey (Inspired by William Blake)

Students, students
talking on
Even though the bell has rung
Who can hear you? Everyone!
So teacher will cut short your fun.

Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright


THE TYGER (from Songs Of Experience)

By William Blake

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright 
In the forests of the night, 
What immortal hand or eye 
Could frame thy fearful symmetry? 
In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?
And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

  6. The Pasture by Robert Frost 
You Come Too
I'm going out to watch the sunset, 
and linger, maybe, to watch the stars come out.
I'll take a chair and blanket to keep warm. 
I'd gladly carry two,
Because what would make it better 
Would be if you came too.  
 --  Ms. Dorsey

  6. and at least the sounds for a poem like Street Music.
Love That Boy by Walter Dean Meyers

Love that boy,
like a rabbit loves to run
I said I love that boy
like a rabbit loves to run
Love to call him in the morning
love to call him
"Hey there, son!"

He walk like his Grandpa,
Grins like his Uncle Ben.
I said he walk like his Grandpa,
And grins like his Uncle Ben.
Grins when he’s happy,
When he sad, he grins again.

His mama like to hold him,
Like to feed him cherry pie.
I said his mama like to hold him.
Like to feed him that cherry pie.
She can have him now,
I’ll get him by and by

He got long roads to walk down
Before the setting sun.
I said he got a long, long road to walk down
Before the setting sun.
He’ll be a long stride walker,
And a good man before he done.
