My thoughts on poetry
My favorite poems are jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll and Knoxville Tennessee by Nikki Giovanni. I like those poems the most because they are both different. Knoxville Tennessee is about the great things that summer can bring, like the things you love to do in the summer and the things you like to eat in the summer. I like jabberwocky also because it is fiction and not real story. In the poem jabberwocky in think these nonsense words make this poem special and it is a really exciting poem. But I think you can learn something from that poem, and that is you can be afraid of something but you can always do it when you believe in yourself and when you are not afraid anymore but in this poem he killed the jabberwocky and came home and now maybe he is the hero. And when you can do something you are afraid of when you can be a little hero because you are not afraid anymore. I think poems are sometimes better than books because you can read long poems and short poems but you can learn from both, but in one thing books and poems are equal they both tell a story even when it is a story that is not real they tell a story.

Similes

Willow and Gingko
by Eve Merriam

The willow is like an etching,
Fine-lined against the sky.
Then ginkgo is like a crude sketch,
Hardly worthy to be signed

In this poem similes are needed because the Willow and the Gingko are compered and with out similes you couldn’t say : The willow is like an etching Fine- lined against the sky.
And in this poem without similes you couldn’t describe how the willow and the gingko look, feel and smell.

Metaphors
Dreams
Langston Hughes
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

In this poem dreams by Langston Hughes life is compered to a broken winged bird. It describes that a life without dreams is like a bird without wings. And a bird needs wings to fly.

My Favorite Poet
My Favorite poet is Edgar Allan Poe, he was born January 19, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts and died in October 7, 1849. He is my favorite poet because he doesn’t wrote normal poems he wrote fiction, gothic and stories that are sometimes scary and sometimes creepy and scary. But he also wrote love stories like Annabel Lee. That’s what I like about Poe and I also like that he wrote some many different poems like a famous one “The Raven”.

Autobiographical Poem
I’m from soccer fields and snow on Christmas from a beautiful landscape and a big river. I’m from a sweet little town with fields and many cattle’s. I’m from a country where winters are cold and summers are hot.

I’m from a karate team where I learned self-defense. I’m from a really great dad who taught me to ride the bike. I’m from skate-parks and a place where I had really nice friends.

I’m from traveling a lot and vacations in the Alps. I’m from homemade food that tastes better than everything. I’m from don’t remember my grandfathers and from having a dog who died of cancer.

Acrostic Poem
Any kinds of animals are great.
Neither it is a wild one or a house animal.
In any way they like you when you treat them right.
My dog was one of my best friends but now he is gone.
All my family misses him but we have to except that he gone. Love we gave him and we had fun with him since his birth.
So I hope you learned a lesson so treat you pets right and give them love.

This is just to say Poem
By Julian Balint

I heard something
dropping. It was
my mothers vase
but she didn’t do it.

Who did it
Nobody knows
The splinters were
Everywhere...
