Transcript

  • 1. Can you find examples of sensory language in these poems?
    Sensory Language in Poetry
  • 2. Table Manners
    The Goops are gluttonous and rude,
    They gug and gumble with their food;
    They throw their crumbs upon the floor,
    And at dessert they tease for more;
    They will not eat their soup and bread
    But like to gobble sweets instead
    And this is why I oft decline,
    When I am asked to stay and dine!
    -Gelett Burgess
  • 3. Grasshopper and Elephant
    Way down south where bananas grow.
    A grasshopper stepped on an elephant’s toe.
    The elephant said with tears in his eyes,
    “Pick on somebody else your own size.”

  • 4. Lullabye
    Sleep, baby , sleep
    The large stars are the sheep;
    The little stars are lambs, I guess;
    The gentle moon’s the shepherdess:
    Sleep, baby, sleep.
    -Author Unknown
  • 5. The Tower
    There was a young girl on a tower
    Who looked just as fresh as a flower.
    Her hair was like silk,
    Her skin smooth as milk,
    But her breath made the strongest knight cower.
    _ Author Unknown
  • 6. The Ram
    On my way to Hampton,
    One fine Autumn day,
    I met the biggest ram
    That was ever fed on hay.
    This ram was fat in fore and aft.
    He stood ‘bout ten yards high,
    The wool upon his back.
    Reached way up to the sky.
    The space between his horns,
    Was so far no one could reach,
    He could prob’ly eat a mountain,
    But I handed him my peach.
    -Author Unknown
