4: An ode to trees Oh, how i love trees! With that sound you mke as the wind blows. To live would be imposible with how you provide oxegon You brighten our lives in fall when we are back in shchool The fun of climbing you in the summer And the beauty of you rebirth in the spring The colors you bring in october Like a rainbow! How elegent and serene you are, I adore you.
5: Times come when it you have to make a dission, you know you can do it if you try. It's like flu shots, you are afraid of it and it is hard, but you know you have to do it. When i wish that i was freinds with too people. One very nice but calm and one powerfull and rough. both i like a lot, they will not tolerate each other. it was time to dicide which was the better freind. thought about which one to choose for weeks, and came to one conclusion. The day i told them the school felt as closed as an iron maidon. and so i get on with it and tell them "Niether." they were bothas white as snow, i explained why i choose niether, but niether understood. they didn't get that i had thought about it and realised that if this mattered so much, they did not respect my choices and where not my friends.
6: Tpcastt t: I think the title (birches) something deeper like a child hood secret that contains something sentimental (feelings). p: Enamel: A shiny coat of paint. (but i think he was refering to it in a different way; like the light reflecting off the ice in the tree.) c:#1 "Shattering and avalanching on the snow crust- such heaps of broken glass to sweep away." around line ten. maby how his life felt at the moment. #2" But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay, ice storms do that." line 5 and 6. i think he's trying to indicate that ice storms are the bad in his life. #3 " Life is too much like a pathless wood." around line 45. i think he trys to say that life is scary, and confuseing at times. #4 "So once was i, a swinger of birches. And so i dream of going back to be" around line 43. I think that he misses his childhood. #5 "No fate willfully misunder stand me and half grant my wish and snatch me away" line 51 and 52. I think he's saying when i get my wish, it will notcause any pain in return or trickery.
7: A: I think he feels sad that his days of being a child are over and is very sad about it. so i think it's a melancholy poem about childhoods and growing up. s: There is a big shift in the middle. At line 20-23 or so, he says "but what i was going to say after truth broke in," which starts the begining of the imforitive part, and ends the sad part of the story. t: the title was a medeforical way of saying growing up. t: know after the story, i actuly belive it was about being able to let go of your past.
