5: Poetry “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 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 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 So low for long, they never right themselves: You may see their trunks arching in the woods
6: Poetry conituned- 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. 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?) 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
7: Contiuned 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.
8: Contiuned 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.
9: TPCASTT T: "Birches"could be about trees and the way it connects to the aouther and the thinghs that happened in his life. P: I think the aouther may be talking about his child hood and how he wants to be a child again. C: The aouther expresses Symbolism, Mtaphore. A: The aouthers attitude is calm in the poem. S: In line 8-11 there is a shift. First he talks about the leaves in the fall then comes the leaves in the winter and how the leaves change color. T: "Birches" Could mean how simple childes lives are and how there taskes are simple.
11: TPCASTT T: It means about how growing up in your life between child hood to adult hood. The remberasant of the child hood. You should remember your child hood because you will never relive it again.
12: Ode Poem | Ode to School Ode to school how I like the school to the teachers to the sub teachers how I like all of them Ode to school how I like Gym and running day Oh how I like to open my gym locker over and over again Ode to school how I like the hall ways I like how you can't move on the stairs and how the hall ways are very very clean
13: Narrative There once was a fish named "Bob" who got picked on by bigger fish than himself. One day Bob and Nob (His best friend) went on a bike ride to the mall when Bob and Nob went in an ice cream store they saw the guy that kept on picking on Bob. "Oh, it's my best friend Bob." he, said. "How de do.'' Bob said. "Pretty good even know i'm going to beat you up right know" he said. "Thats not going to happen because my best friend Nob will defend me" Bob said. "Oh, he looks tough I don't think I want to mess with him, i'm out of here" he said. "Thats a way to teach him a lesson".
