Poem a Day Challenge #9

Hi Class! Welcome to day 9 of our poetry challenge. I revised my ocean poem from yesterday so I wanted to share it with you! What do you think about the changes I made? As a poet, revision is a critical part. I hope that you are spending time thoughtfully revising your poem as well. 🙂

Make sure to include the link to your post for today’s challenge in the comments section! 🙂

The Ocean

The ocean swaggers into the shore.

In and out.

In and out.

She tiptoes on tiny feet and freshly built sand castles.

She runs over shattered seashells and slimy seaweed.

In and out.

In and out.

She sprints back home and doesn’t look back.

Here’s Ms. Kim’s poem:

The ocean swaggers into the shore.

In and out.

In and out.

It tiptoes on tiny feet and freshly built sand castles.

It runs over shattered seashells and slimy seaweed.

It sprints back home and doesn’t look back.

Here is one of my favorite poems.

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

 That cannot fly

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen in snow

–Langston Hughes
