“I am the sun shining so bright” ~ Reverse Personification @ Avondale Logandale

In week 10, we continued to stretch our poetic imaginations with reverse personification poems of nature delight! We had fun reading “The Delight Song of Tsoai-talee” by N. Scott Momaday and using that poem to inspire ways we could compare ourselves to things in nature. We had fun playing around with metaphors to compare and describe our different personalities before taking some time to write our own original reverse personification nature poems.

Scroll down to enjoy our published reverse personification nature poems!
