First posts on our blog: Poem responses

Let's get started today by responding to one of the poems in the packet.

What struck you about this poem? What is the basic story, in your view?

What feelings or emoitions come through in the poem? Explain.

Where is the language especially well done? What's your favorite line from the poem? Why?

How might you connect to the poem? What does it mean to you?

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ANSWER ALL THESE, but pick ones that are interesting to you, and write a poem response on the blog.

To post, you must use the new post feature. To comment on other students' writing, click on the comment feature. Please write one original post, and three comments, on the blog.

Remember: Every chance to write is a chance to write well!

All best,

Mike Lohre
