Personification Poems- 7th Grade

This week we got started on poems using personification as a device in our poems. We read “A Lament” by Percy Bysshe Shelley and talked about how we could give human qualities to things that are larger than life. What would it be like to have a conversation with a tree, a lion, or the ocean? Sometimes, a topic can take a little more time and thought and intention to write. So tune back in next week to see what these awesome 7th graders come up with. 



“Writing poetry makes me feel like I can see myself, like I can see my reflection, but not in a mirror, in the world. I write and I know I can be reflected.”
-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
