Transcript of Imagination Poems

By: Richard Edwards
Under my bed I keep a box Or turn December into spring,
With seven locks, Or make stones sing.

And all the things I have to hide I could clap my hands and watch the moon
Are safe inside: Like a white balloon,

My rings, my wand, my hat, my shells, Come floating to my windowsill...
My book of spells.
One day I will.
I could fit a mountain into a shoe
If I wanted to,

Or put the sea in a paper cup
And drink it up.

I could change a cushion into a bird
With a magic word,
Jabberwocky By:Lewis C
Johnny drew a Monster
By: Lilian Moore
Johnny drew a monster.
The monster chased him.
Just in time
Johnny erased him.
By: Jack Prelutsky
I made a creature It has four horns,
out of clay, one beady eye,
just what it is is hard to say. two floppy wings
Its neck is thin, (though it can't fly),
its legs are fat, it only sits,
it's like a bear upon my shelf-
and like a bat. just think, I made it
by myself!
It's like a snake
and like a snail,
it has a little,
curly tail,
a shaggy mane,
a droopy beard,
its ears are long,
its smile is weird.

The Gold- Tinted Dragon
By:Karla Kuskin
What's the good of a wagon
Without any dragon
To pull you for mile after mile?
An elegant lean one
A gold-tinted green one
Wearing a dragonly smile.
You'll sweep down valleys
You'll sail up hills
Your dragon will shine in the sun
And as you rush by
The people will cry
"I wish that my wagon had one!"

My Creature

Background information
of "The Gold-Tinted Dragon"
Poetic Element
Simile: "Its like a bear, it's like a bat." A simile is comparing something using like or as.
Poetic Element
Hyperbole: "Or put the sea in a paper cup, and drink it up." A hyperbole is an extreme exaggeration.
Poetic Element
Rhyme: "What's the good of a wagon, Without any dragon" Rhyme is when two or more words sound the same when you say them.
Relationship with theme
This poem "My Creature" relates to my theme imagination because the little kid talks about his creature having all these features. The creature is really made of clay, but the kid talks of it by being real and giving it human or animal qualities.
Relationship with theme
This poem "Wizard" relates with my theme imagination because the little kid says he keeps a box with seven locks under his bed and that he is a wizard. He says things like he can change a cushion into bird. Although in the end he wishes he could actually do those things.
Relationship with Theme
This poem "The Gold-Tinted Dragon relates with my theme imagination because dragons aren't real. Also the person has a wagon that has a dragon that fly's him around down valleys and up hills. The other people wish they had a dragon for their wagon, too.
Summary of "Johnny Drew
a Monster"
Johnny draws a monster. Johnny thinks the monster is chasing him, but just in time Johnny erased him.
Poetic Element
Personification: "Johnny drew a monster. The monster chased him." Personification s when non-living objects are given human qualities.
Relationship with Theme
The poem Johnny drew a monster relates to my theme imagination because Johnny draws a monster. Then he thinks the monster chases him, but drawings don't come to life. So he obviously Johnny imagines the monster chasing him.
Summary of Jabberwocky
A father tells his son to be aware of the Jabberwock. Then the son sets out and finds the Jabberwock roaming around he slays him. The son brings back the head to show his father what he'd accomplished.
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time manxome foe he sought-
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffush thought he stood,
The Jabberwock with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tugley wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal bladewent snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with it's head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
Background information
of "Jabberwocky"
Jabberwocky first appeared in "Mischmasch", a magazine written both by and for the Carroll family, in 1855 when Carroll was 23. Jabberwocky was apart of Lewis Carroll's "The Looking-Glass".
This poem originally appeared "In the middle of the trees", in 1958. Also taken from the anthology, "Moon Have You Met My Mother?"
Poetic Element
Onomatopoeia: "The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!" Onomatopoeia is word sounds, so when a noise is made it's described as a word so the reader knows what sound was made.
Relationship with
the theme
The poem "Jabberwocky" relates with my theme imagination because this beast (the Jabberwocky) is very dangerous. As we know their is no such thing as a Jabberwocky. Also the poem has a lot of made up words like "uffish" and "brillig". Lewis Carroll had to think way out of the box and use his imagination a lot to think of this creature and made up words.
