NatureClear blue oceansand rolling wavesTraveling 100,000,000 kilometersto a far beyond landwith sparkling emerald green grassthen hearing a shriek across the landstraveling for the cloudy blue skiesinto the landthat human never discovered
ResponseThe tool I used for this one was turning a story in to a poem.The thoughts I had about this poem wasn’t really clear... I didn’t really know how I started writing this poem, words just suddenly popped in head. It was quite hard to end the poem because nothing seemed to ﬁt with the beginning of the poem and it didn’t ﬁt the theme either.
The TreeIn the dry ﬁeldIs a dry tree“the tree”as dry as crunchy leaves in fall
ResponseThis poem used a simile. I got the idea for this poem when Mrs. Melhorn showed a picture that had a dry tree in it and told us to write a poem about it. It was hard to write because I couldn’t ﬁnd the right words and the second paragraph (it’s not in here because I deleted it, but you can ﬁnd it on www.blogs.isb.ac.th/pomt).
CheetahFaster than humanFaster than an ostrichBut not faster than a carBOOM!A bulletRun fast!Run fast!too late...
ResponseI got the idea of this poem from watching National Geographic at home when I saw a car chasing a lion. The tools I used for this poem is image poem and repetition.
Elephant in Pain“Elephant in pain”been tortured againthis time they winwith grins on their faceshappy with their meatThe father so angrywanting to crush themand another is dead...
ResponseThis is sort of the same type poem as the “Cheetah” one. It was written in the same style (hunting animals and world issues door) as the other one. The reason I wanted to write two was because I just wanted to write about the shooter and the animal that was shot. How it felt for the shooter and how it felt for the animal shot.
Icicles s”Fancy little “i c e i l changing from the icy cavesCrystal clear of dropletsfalling from the icy thorns
ResponseI got the idea of this poem when my brother was talking to his friend about their science project and then I got the ideas of icicles and decided to write about it.I couldn’t think of any words for the poem, so searched the internet for a picture of an icicle and started writing the poem by describing the picture (it’s not the same picture as the one on beside the poem).
The EagleSoaring through the sunny skywith his SHARP eagle eyesChasing for some meatWith a swoop a rat is now gone
ResponseThe tools I used for this poem was the 6 room poem.I got the ideas of this poem when I was in America and he was tying to scare me from saying that there would be an eagle that would swoop down from the sky and would eat me.

ReflectionI chose “nature” to be the theme of my poem anthology because it was one of the words in my heart.I think that I have improved my poetry skills a lot since 4th grade, probably because I wrote the a lot of poems this year.If I could do this anthology again or if I had more time, I would make the line breaks more interesting and use better choice of words that would grab the reader’s attention.
