Siti A - TEN poems I've recently discovered!

This is the hardest assignment so far!! Only because it's poetry ... since I don't read them much. heh. I'm posting this list since they were introduced to me, I read it, I liked it so I'm just posting this list first.

I've read more poems these few days than I've read in my entire life! So I need time to analyse and think about how I'll teach these poems.

(1) This is just to say - William Carlos Williams
I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
(2) Bloody men - Wendy Cope

Bloody men are like bloody buses -
You wait for about a year
And as soon as one approaches your stop
Two or three others appear.

You look at them flashing their indicators,
Offering you a ride.
You're trying to read the destination,
You haven't much time to decide.

If you make a mistake, there is no turning back.
Jump off, and you'll stand there and gaze
While the cars and the taxis and lorries go by
And the minutes, the hours, the days.

(3) A slumber did my spirit seal - William Wordsworth
(4) I wandered lonely as a cloud - William Wordsworth
(5) Poison tree - William Blake
(6) Acquainted with the night - Robert Frost
(7) The temporary face - Imtiaz Dharker

(8) Life is but a dream - Lewis Carroll
(9) A dream within a dream - Edgar Allan Poe
(10) When the sidewalk ends - Shel Silverstein
