Transcript of Colors of the Wind

By: Judy Kuhn "COLORS OF THE WIND"
From the movie _Pocahontas_ New words and phrases: Blue Corn Moon Sunsweet Part Of Speech: Adjective Sycamore Part of Speech: Noun The Theme The theme of this song is to not think of nature and the earth as things you can conquer and call your own, but to live in harmony with nature and respect it. Literary Devices The whole song is filled with literary devices. There are metaphors, personification, similes, and more. Blue corn moon Sunsweet Sycamore Part Of Speech: Noun A Blue Corn Moon is the second full moon in the month of May. Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind? How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon Sunsweet is used to describe berries. It means all natural, completely from the earth and given energy from the sun. Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth Sycamore is a name that applies to three different types of trees with similar leaf forms. How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon In the song this message is specifically directed at Captain John Smith and she also urges him to accept all people even if they don't look exactly like you. Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains? This is a personification. This line is a personification because it suggests that mountains have voices, which they do not. The personification has nothing to do with the human singing, but it personifies the mountains. The rainstorm and the river are my brothers This is a metaphor. These lyrics create a metaphor because they are comparing two things without using like or as. The rainstorm and river are being compared to a brother. Pocahontas compares these two things because she is so close with nature that they could be her brothers. Examples? You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth T H E E N D
