Slide10

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?Thou art more lovely and more temperate.Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer's lease hath all too short a date.Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,And often is his gold complexion dimmed;And every fair from fair sometime declines,By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed.But thy eternal summer shall not fadeNor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Shakespeare: “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” (sonnet)

The wind is now

a roaring, smashingmonster of destruction,raking all man’s workfrom the valleys,from the vales,and sends them spinning,broken flying-But all of that isnot its core,its center is in trutheternal stillnessbright blue skiesand all you hear are gentle whispersfar away and unimportant.

The sun peeked happily from behind a cloud.

The trees danced back and forth in the wind.

It was time to go home, but the bell refused to ring

The delicious smell of cookies pulled me to the kitchen.

That

chocolate ice cream cone is really tempting me.

The angry sky roared and threw lightning around.

The

gentle wind softly kissed my cheeks as I walked.I can see that news travels quickly.

Personification

Slide19

Excitement wears orange socks. He understands the language of flames and loves to build fires. He first taught me how to build a fire when I was seventeen. I was young and scared of being burned. Now I am preparing for another visit. This time I am going to open my heart and let the fire inside.Excitement is a visionary. He is skilled in the art of friendship. He has worked at many jobs…electrician, juggler, sign painter, singer, inventor, poet. Excitement has always moved around. As a teenager, he took a room in Anxiety’s house, and last winter Patience sheltered him. The Wind taught Excitement how to be two places at once, and they are still very good friends, though they do not spend much time with each other these days. Sometimes when Excitement dances with the Wind, there is lightning in the sky. J. Ruth Gendler (The Book of Qualities)

Doubt camped out in the living room last week. I told him that we had had too many house guests. Doubt doesn’t listen. He keeps saying the same thing again and again until I completely forget what I am trying to tell him. Doubt is demanding and not very generous, but I appreciate his honesty. (The Book of Qualities)

I cannot go to school today, ’Said little Peggy Ann McKay.'I have the measles and the mumps, A gash, a rash and purple bumps.My mouth is wet, my throat is dry, I'm going blind in my right eye.My tonsils are as big as rocks, I've counted sixteen chicken poxAnd there's one more-that's seventeen, And don't you think my face looks green? My leg is cut-my eyes are blue-It might be instamatic flu.I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke, I'm sure that my left leg is broke-My hip hurts when I move my chin, My belly button's caving in, My back is wrenched, my ankle's sprained, My 'pendix pains each time it rains.My nose is cold, my toes are numb.I have a sliver in my thumb.My neck is stiff, my voice is weak, I hardly whisper when I speak.My tongue is filling up my mouth, I think my hair is falling out.My elbow's bent, my spine ain't straight, My temperature is one-o-eight.My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear, There is a hole inside my ear.I have a hangnail, and my heart is-what? What's that? What's that you say? You say today is...Saturday? G'bye, I'm going out to play! '

Shel Silverstein

I wandered lonely as a cloudThat floats on high o’er vales and hills,When all at once I saw a crowd,A host, of golden daffodils;Beside the lake, beneath the trees,Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.Continuous as the stars that shineAnd twinkle on the milky way,They stretched in never-ending lineAlong the margin of a bay:Ten thousand saw I at a glance,Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:A poet could not but be gay.In such a jocund company:I gazed---and gazed---but little thoughtWhat wealth the show to me had brought:For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood,They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude;And then my heart with pleasure fills,And dances with the daffodils.

I Wandered lonely as a cloud

--William

wordsworth
