2: I am From I am from the cajun state, from craw fish and meat pies. I am from the creeks, pictures, and crosses. I am from the Honey suckles, and the beautiful yellow daises. I am from going to nana's and grilling steaks. From a Hildebrand's and Lindsey's family. I am from the church-goers, and sports lovers. From pick up your room and why don't you cry about its? I am from the baptists, always in church. I am from Shreveport, but most of my family in Minden. From the I went swimming with my phone, to the pretty blue eyes. I am from the pictures on the walls and the talent God gives me.
3: Ode to Family Photos This is the yard, and there are my eyes. There is the house, and there is the football. No one was ever good at pictures in my family. There is the Statue of Liberty, And there are my dad's legs. There is my grandparents in their new house, And there is my brother making stupid faces. There is my brother, And there is a llama spitting on him. There is our new car, And there is my mom smiling. There is my dad coaching. My brother and I playing in the yard. Then as my brother graduates. Mama cries when she looks, Hayden's cap on: even though it's blurry, The only tear I've ever seen come out my dad's eyes. But we always laugh when we look back. How can I tell? All of us giggling and smiling. "Hey dad, when is March Madness?"

5: Name Poem Never give up Open-minded Athletic Honors God
6: Acrostic Poem Ferocious defenders Open-minded moms Open receivers Throw the ball Big ole' coaches Always remembering plays Love for the game Live to play it
7: Couplet Look deep into someone's heart, Because you will never see the true art The heart is where the personality lives Where a person will laugh and forgive Especially with a person like me, Your life is a wait, but there isn't any fee. So make sure and work hard for what you've got, Because when people look back, they remember how hard you fought.
8: Macavity Honestly, in the beginning of the poem, I had no idea what the title, "Macavity" meant. So I decided to read the poem and hopefully find out just what exactly the title meant. I also decided to paraphrase it for you. The poem is about a cat named Macavity who apparently is a criminal. The cat is a very tall, slender cat who is never there whenever a cop comes. In the poem Macavity has many special powers such as "Breaking the law of gravity." Macavity is definetly a character. The connotation in this poem is very important to the poem. The literary devices he uses are, imagery, simile, and metaphors. He uses imagery by describing that everywhere the cops search, they can't find him. He also uses imagery by describing how Macavity looks. Another important thing the poet has in this poem is his attitude. The author's attitude in this poem is very light hearted. This poem is meant to be entertaining for the reader, which is what the poet was aiming for with this one. I found out that for the title of this poem, to me, it means a very joy filled person that loves to laugh. The poet does a great job with using literary devices, as well as entertaining the reader.
9: The Road Not Taken The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost is great poem, but I already kind of had a clue of what the poem could be about. The title, "The Road Not Taken" is a absolutely perfect meaning for the poem. The paraphrase of this poem is actually fairly simple. Robert Frost is making a poem about how it's always a tough choice, either good or bad, the bad will lead you astray. Most people will take the bad road, and it takes them nowhere, but what Robert Frost says is, if you take the good road, it'll make all the difference, a good difference. The attitude of this poem is very serious and genuine. Robert Frost in the last stanza claims, "I took the road less traveled by and that made all the difference." This ending to the poem creates suspense and a serious ending note. The title to me at the end is just exactly what I thought it was. This whole poem is about taking the right path, and if you choose to, you will never be led atsray.
10: Free Verse Life is a game, Learn the rules as you go, You will experience defeat, You will also experience victory. People will treat you wrong, And people will you right. But the most important thing to remember is The fight.
11: Limerick Everyday outside shooting basketball, Always having to teach my brother until I fall. I always get mad if he messes up or does something wrong, Or maybe he even zones out singing a song. I thought it may be best if we just go to the mall.
12: Haiku Birds flying high up Beautiful and worry free Wow that's easy
13: I am poem I am caring, loving I wonder when God is coming back I hear water flowing I see God's face I want some new shoes I am caring, loving I pretend to shoot a basketball I feel smart I touch God's robe I worry when i will die I cry when I see someone die I am caring, loving I understand football I say God is our savior I dream of playing in the NFL I try to finish this project I hope I finish it I am caring, loving
14: Someday SOMEDAY... Someday i will dunk it. Someday I will play in the NFL. Someday i will go to Alaska. Someday I will travel the whole world. Someday I will be a pilot. Someday I will be as rich as Bill Gates. Someday I will make everyone will know who I am. Someday....
15: Thoughts The sky of thought infests my head. The sun knows my thoughts and memories. Clouds! I despise rain clouds. I have no control, no control over my thoughts anymore. No fear, No crying, The sun will come up tomorrow.
16: O Captain! My captain! Optain Captain" was about a hero, or leader that has just led his army or people back from a war. In the poem, the start claims, " Our fearful trip is done." This is again saying that Abraham Lincoln was a big deal in helping wars. Although the poem was great, Abraham Lincoln dies as the poem is ending, but this was all part of the poets plan to create suspense. I chose to recite this poem because it is an important part to me in American history. I also just love being in front of people and talking, but reciting this poem was a little bit of a challenge and i am glad i got to recite it, not sing it!
17: Ending Poem! Hey Mrs. Carter, this is just to make you smile, I'm glad i finally finished this, even though it took a while! But now I'm ecstatic because this is done, But now since I am finished, I guess you could say I won!!
