Response to "Boy, Waiting for a School Bus"

The poem "Boy, Waiting for a School Bus" is about a boy waiting for a school bus on a cold, winter morning. It repeats many times in the poem "a frozen dawn, a scattering of snow." I think the poem is really descriptive, it really draws a picture in my head of the boys surroundings. A good line in the poem is "Ditch and stubble fields, tar that never ends." I think a lot of people could relate to this, atleast anyone who has ever waited for a bus or any kind of ride. Standing in the cold by yourself, maybe a little impatient, keeping your eyes focused on the ''tar that never ends'' anticipating when you'll finally be picked up and saved from the wind.

  1. You had a good point, everyone that has ever waited for the bus knows how this boy felt. I really like that fact that the poem used one line over and over to really show the reader what this boy was waiting in.
