“I am the fuzziest wolf” ~ Reverse Personification @ Moos

Last week at Moos, 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.

This week, I published 4 poems from both 3rd grade classes to surprise the students. Scroll down to enjoy our published reverse personification poems!

Dollinda H.

I am a bird.
I am a tree waiting to be found.
I am the crunch on the snow.
I am a giraffe crunching on leaves.
I am the blue horse.
I am the wind.
I am a tree bowing.
I am bird flying in the air.



Anthony V.

I am a flower blossoming with bees
I am tree in the summer
I am a tiger on a rock
I am waterfall in the winter
I am a rock lying on a bed
I am a boat rowing on a cloud
I am a cat wearing a hat
I am a silverback roaming in the wild



Brooklyn C.

I am a mountain in the sky.
I am a rock hiding in dirt.
I am a waterfall in the dark.
I am leaf in the grass.
I am a color coloring a book.
I am a box of markers on paper.
I am a yo-yo rolling on the floor.
I am a pig running away.
I am a wagon rolling on the ground.
I am a sun looking down.
I am a rabbit hopping around.
I am a moon in the sky.



I Am the Delight Song
Alberto B.

I am the sun that shines on the world.
I am a log up in the tree.
I am a tree as tall as a building.
I am the feeling that makes people happy.
I am falcon flying like a plane.
I am a plant waiting to grow.
I am a home protecting the humans.
I am a car racing fast.
I am a moon that brings darkness to the world.
I am the sky making it windy.

I am the boss of the water.
I am a sun.
I am a big mountain.
I am a fire.
I am the monkey of the sky.
I am the thunder of the rain forest.
I am a lion that roars rain.




I am the leader of the lions.
I am the boss of glitter slime.
I am a sunshine of a flower.
I am a sunshine of a cupcake.
I am the fuzziest wolf.
I am a rainbow elephant.
I am a sparkly book bag.
I am rainbow water.

The Earth

I am the ocean of Mexico.
I am the biggest star in the sky.
I am the wind in summer.
I am the sun in winter.
I am the snow in summer.
I am the sunlight in the night.
I am the rainbow in winter.
I am the sky of Mexico.
I am the ocean of the United States.
I am the love ocean in the fall world.
I am the tree in summer.
I am the sun when it snows.
