3: Oxymoron - Combining to phrases that are nothing alike. Ex. I have always wanted a real fake duck!

4: TPCASTT | “Birches” – Robert Frost WHEN I see birches bend to left and right Across the line of straighter darker trees, I like to think some boy's been swinging them. But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay. Ice-storms do that. Often you must have seen them 5 Loaded with ice a sunny winter morning After a rain. They click upon themselves As the breeze rises, and turn many-colored As the stir cracks and crazes their enamel. Soon the sun's warmth makes them shed crystal shells 10 Shattering and avalanching on the snow-crust— Such heaps of broken glass to sweep away You'd think the inner dome of heaven had fallen. They are dragged to the withered bracken by the load, And they seem not to break; though once they are bowed 15 So low for long, they never right themselves: You may see their trunks arching in the woods Years afterwards, trailing their leaves on the ground Like girls on hands and knees that throw their hair Before them over their heads to dry in the sun. 20 But I was going to say when Truth broke in With all her matter-of-fact about the ice-storm (Now am I free to be poetical?)

5: I should prefer to have some boy bend them As he went out and in to fetch the cows— Some boy too far from town to learn baseball, Whose only play was what he found himself, Summer or winter, and could play alone. One by one he subdued his father's trees By riding them down over and over again Until he took the stiffness out of them, And not one but hung limp, not one was left For him to conquer. He learned all there was To learn about not launching out too soon And so not carrying the tree away Clear to the ground. He always kept his poise To the top branches, climbing carefully With the same pains you use to fill a cup Up to the brim, and even above the brim. Then he flung outward, feet first, with a swish, Kicking his way down through the air to the ground. So was I once myself a swinger of birches; And so I dream of going back to be. It's when I'm weary of considerations, And life is too much like a pathless wood Where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs Broken across it, and one eye is weeping From a twig's having lashed across it open. I'd like to get away from earth awhile And then come back to it and begin over.

6: May no fate wilfully misunderstand me And half grant what I wish and snatch me away Not to return. Earth's the right place for love: I don't know where it's likely to go better. I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree, And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more, But dipped its top and set me down again. That would be good both going and coming back. One could do worse than be a swinger of birches. | TPCASTT T - I thought that the title 'Birches' represented trees. Since trees are thought as in nature I think the title is referring to nature. P - This poem is about the narrorater seeing these bent birches and having them remind himof his childhood.

7: C- 'Like girls on hands and knees that throw their hair ' this line is an example of imagery. It descibes how the birches look after they are bent by the storm. 'With the same pains you use to fill a cup Up to the brim, and even above the brim. ' This is comparing climbing a tree to filling a glass to the brim. These are comparable because they are both challenging and you must be careful. 'And life is too much like a pathless wood ' In this line Frost means that life has no direction. There is no map guiding you. You have to make your own path. So life would be the wood and the path wood be your choices. 'And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more, ' In his line he means that he wants to 'climb' life. Live it to its full potential. You can't let the fear of falling keep you from reaching to top. 'One could do worse than be a swinger of birches. ' When climbing the birches is referred to it is ment to be thought of as having fun. And when he says one could do worse then being a swinger of birches he means that having fun won't kill you. It actually isn't

8: bad at all. A- The authors attitude towards climbing birches is positive. He thinks it is a good thing and there is nothing bad about it. S- At the begining of the poem it is about birches being bent by storms or children. ut, by the end it is about life overall. T- now that i have read the poem I think the title is interpreted into it being about how little things in life make all the difference. T- the larger message of this poem is that life is an intresting ride. You are always changing. Like the birches, once we are 'bent' it is very difficult to bounce back.

10: The Day That it Rained | The day the water fell from the sky was the day the sun came out. The day the flowers bloomed and the day the bluebird sang. The day that it rained was the day ladybug flew the day the breeze came back. The day that it rained was the day we woke up. The day we threw away the old and took in the new.

11: Ode To Summer I love the gentle heat of the summer sun. That school is out and done. Going to the beach or pool. The water gives my body a cool. Having nothing important to do. Never wearing any shoes. All year long I have chased you down. Untill you've finally reached my town. Summer, summer now that you are here. Winter is my only fear. | Ode to Summer I love the gentle heat of the summer sun. That school is out and done. Having nothing important to do. Never wearing any shoes. Going to the beach or pool.
