2: Where I'm from I'm from the military, constantly moving and relocating I am from moving boxes and new houses with kids screaming" there's a new kid" I'm from the smell of new houses I live in the house that overlooks the base I am from the schoolroom, where kids learn I from new foods, hagus and millions of others I'm from church on Sunday's
3: I AM Poem (Blake Humphries) I am a dreamer and an achiever I wonder what the future will hold I hear voices from the past I see the future in my head I want to be successful I am a dreamer and an achiever I pretend that all happy days are not over I feel like my dreams will be fulfilled I touch pen to paper and all my troubles go away I worry that all the things I’ve done are not enough I cry when all I’ve done just isn’t enough I am a dreamer and an achiever I understand life is hard I say I’ll fulfill my dreams I dream that everything will end up good I try to do as much as I can I hope I help as much as I can I am a dreamer and an achiever
4: MardiGras Mystery | The rain came without a care I shall not dare, to think over, the events that just went over. A car was rollin, when a man named nolen, stopped and took a shot on a hot, yet cool MardiGras day
5: Oh what is there to say, About the dog that lay. She wasn't one for destruction, Or construction either. She was a dog, Who didn't act like a hog. She had fun, While she sat in the sun. She was as happy as a kid in a candy store, When she had food on the floor. She barked all day, When all she did was lay. She is the mysterious dog, Who didn't act like a hog. All she did was lay, What else, she could not say. | Animal Poem
6: The slow one is here The old one approaches me One hot sunny day | The very fast cat the African Sahara the predator hunts | Duel Haiku's
7: ODE TO... | Ode to math Something I cannot live without equations, creating and solving Ode to Algebra equations, equations, equations used everyday help to make homes Ode to measure how long something is how big something needs to be I wonder without measure ode to adding the math I like fast and easy just like that Ode to math adding or subtracting multiplying or dividing math is key
8: Four Foxes response Silly human, I care nothing of you I am the mighty winter I do what I wish. Leave the fox be, you shouldn't worry about it, the fox is not your problem yet somewhat you still worry
9: Limerick There once was a girl named Tish what she liked to do was fish one day she lost her pole she met a boy named Cole later on she would have a dish
10: Part Two
11: acceptance god in his infinite wisdom did not take me very wise so my actions are stupid they hardly take god by surprise | Langston Hughes | I believe that this poem is about being accepted. The author is talking about how bad decisions change your life. The author never changes how you think during the poem. My guess about what the poem meant was wrong. It talked about how god accepts you.
12: acceptance a voice once said look me in the stars and tell me truly men of earth If all the soul and body scars were too much to pay for birth | Robert Frost | I believe this poem is about someone being accepted. The author is talking about how a voice asked him if pain was too much to pay for birth. The author changes my mind in this poem. At the beginning I thought it might be weird, it turned out to be a more serious poem. The poem is really about what we pay for birth. It talks about how we might pay to big a price for birth.
13: purple cow I never saw a purple cow i never hope to see one, i can tell you anyhow , I'd rather see than be one | gelett burgess | I believe this poem is about a purple cow. The author is talking about how they don't want to see a purple cow. The author never changed my mind. My guess of the poem's meaning was correct. This poem is about hoping to never see a purple cow.
14: faith is a fine invention when gentlemen can see but microscopes are prudent in an emergency | Emily Dickinson | My guess is that this poem is about faith. The author talks about how some people don't have faith. The author changed my mind. I understood what she meant at the end. This poem is about when men can have faith. The theme is men need to have faith.
15: cruelty has a human heart and jealousy a human face; terror the human form divine and secrecy the human dress the human dress is forged iron the human form a fiery forge the human face is a furnace sealed the human heart its hungry gorge | William Blake | I believe this poem is about the human body. The author talks about how the human body is like a factory. I had the same feeling throughout the poem, and the poet never changed my feelings. My guess about what this poem was about was right.
16: PART THREE
17: The poem " stopping by woods on a snowy evening" reminds me of the time I spent at my great grandparents house. I imagine the forest differently in this poem. Robert Frost gives it an eerie feeling. I like the part of the poem when Robert frost describes the poem as dark and snowy. I like when poets can change your mind about something. The part of the poem that surprises me the most is when the narrator stops near the woods.
