3: Robert Frost | Robert Frost was born in San Francisco on March 26, 1874. He moved to New England at the age of eleven and became interested in reading and writing poetry during his high school years in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was enrolled at Dartmouth College in 1892, and later at Harvard, though he never earned a formal degree.

4: Some say the world will end in fire; Some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To know that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice. | Fire and Ice

5: ANALYSIS | The ryhme scheme is ABAABCBCB. | Tone:The author of this poem, used a tone of describing how the world will end. You can tell by how he is describing about Fire and Ice being destructive and perishing the world. Figurative Language:destructive ice-hypebole-ice cannot be destructive therefore it would be a hyperbole Opinion: I did not really favor this poem because he is comparing 2 ways the world will end but i don't think the world will end in fire and or ice so it kind of confused me, so it was hard to understand.

6: Gary Soto | Gary Soto was born April 12, 1952 in Fresno, California. In 1985 he worked at University of California as an English and Social Studies teacher.Gary stopped teaching in 1993 to become a full-time writer. He has earned many prizes,including an American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation for Living Up the Street in 1985.

7: The first time I walked With a girl, I was twelve, Cold, and weighted down With two oranges in my jacket. December. Frost cracking Beneath my steps, my breath Before me, then gone, As I walked toward Her house, the one whose Porch light burned yellow Night and day, in any weather. A dog barked at me, until She came out pulling At her gloves, face bright With rouge. I smiled, Touched her shoulder, and led Her down the street, across A used car lot and a line Of newly planted trees, Until we were breathing Before a drugstore. We Entered, the tiny bell Bringing a saleslady Down a narrow aisle of goods. I turned to the candies Tiered like bleachers, And asked what she wanted - Light in her eyes, a smile Starting at the corners Of her mouth. I fingered A nickel in my pocket, And when she lifted a chocolate | ORANGES

8: That cost a dime, I didn't say anything. I took the nickel from My pocket, then an orange, And set them quietly on The counter. When I looked up, The lady's eyes met mine, And held them, knowing Very well what it was all About. Outside, A few cars hissing past, Fog hanging like old Coats between the trees. I took my girl's hand in mine for two blocks, Then released it to let Her unwrap the chocolate. I peeled my orange That was so bright against The gray of December That, from some distance, Someone might have thought I was making a fire in my hands.

9: ANALYSIS | THERE IS NO RYHME SCHEME Tone:There was not a real tone in this poem. There was no real emotion in the poem. But there was a theme or subject, which was about oranges. Figurative Language: A few cars hissing past-PERSONIFICATION-cars cannot hiss Coats between the trees-HYPERBOLE-coats cannot be between trees I was making a fire in my hands-HYPERBOLE-you cannot make a fire with your bare hands Opinion:I didn't really like this poem because there was not really a tone so it wasn't like the first poem by Robert Frost. It did not make much sense either. It just talked about oranges and and things he saw.

10: Emma Warren | My name is Emma Warren. I am in 6th grade going into 7th. I love Auburn University. My favorites things are my cell phone and my I-Touch. I also love to play many sports. Pasta is my favorite food, and I eat a lot of it. I have 2 older sisters and 1 older brother. I really enjoy being the baby of the family! I have 2 dogs, Hunter and Callie. I like to hang out with my friends, but I also leave time to spend with my family.

11: Molly I have a dog named Molly, She is a border collie, When she talks she wags her tail, And we taught her how to fetch the mail She likes to go outside and dig, The holes she makes are crater sized big, My dog can make a humongous mess, But she truly is the very best.

12: Beaches The cool water is like a refreshing shower, The wind whistles over the waves and sand, The seagulls soar high then dive for their feast, The sun blazes and warms the beach, The shells skip along the frothy tide, While I sit and enjoy the beach.

13: Glossary | Desire:Wish or longing. Perish:Die or be destroyed. Rouge:Blush, a red or pink cosmetic for coloring the cheeks or lips. Suffice:Be enough or adequate. Tiered: One of a series of rows placed one above another.
