Who am I?

In poetry when we write through the point of view or perspective of another character as if it was our own this is known persona. After reading “Death of Snowman” by Vernon Scannell we discussed the use of persona to describe the point of view of snowman as he approaches summer. The poets were asked to then write through the point of view of something not human. Enjoy!



By Ilias

I am this green stuff

With fresh water I get filled up

And it helps me grow



By Angelou

I lived far far away

All that’s left are my bones

Because of tragedy that caused me to be extinct



By Camor

I can grow

I need water

I need sun

I need space

I smell good!

I am yellow

I grow in a garden

Bees come to me
