Peace in Summer
Summertime
By: PHILIPPE DELAVEAU
The hour which clings to each leaf
Or each leaf suspend
In time which seems to abolish
The fugitive hour and fragile destinies

The immobile leaves of the pear tree,
The trunk scattered with peelings
The sky where the wind's water
Ebbs without haste or sadness

The ivy
Incorruptible and black among decaying trees
Along the route soiled by red springs
TPCASTT
Ode to Summertime
Heat blankets the Earth
As sweat lingers from freshly tanned Bodies
Awkward sun burns caused by long tiring Days
Try to stay cool
Bug spray is a necessity
Hot sticky uncomfortable beds

But let the not forget
Restless nights
Blue clear oceans mixed in with skies of Grey
Good times spent with friends
Pools filled with bubbles

Memories that will last until the end
Let the not forget it is summer time
Villanelle

Summer days sunny and fresh
Palm trees dancing to the sound of wind
Warmth covers the Earth like a blanket of heat

Friday nights everlasting
Skies of blue
Summer days sunny and fresh

Tulips blooming in grasses of green
Plants sprouting and growing
Warmth covers the Earth like a blanket of heat

Robins fluttering by
Everything bright and new
Summer days sunny and fresh

Heat like a 5 star restaurant oven
Sunshine as bright as flashlight
Warmth covers the Earth like a blanket of heat

Grass cut fresh and new
Fresh dew on the tips of grass
Summer days sunny and fresh
Warmth covers the Earth like a blanket of heat
Sonnet
Italian-
Frightful big tides rolling into the bay
Dragonflies dance in the light of the sun
Flowers drifting in the wind having fun
But then came the squirrels that chased them away
The squirrels left leaving them to stay
Kids running excited that they won
Breeze dances across my face as I run
Drifting clouds causing skies of gray
My hair mixed with salt and beach waves
Sand scarping me along the beach floor
I love the feeling of sand between my toes
Crystal clear water in foreign caves
Rainy days in Summer causes bores
Tuesday's fireworks and night shows



Summer Time
Title-
The title of this poem is Summertime so my predication is that is has to do with the season Summer.
Paraphrase-
"The hour which clings to each leaf" put into my own words I think means the hours that change on every leaf because there are a lot of leaves in summer. "Or each leaf suspended" that means hen time stops. "In time which seems to abolish" that means that time seems to disappear because time seems to go fast when you are having fun. "The fugitive hour and fragile destinies" this means that every hour is precious. "The immobile leaves of the pear tree" this means the leaves on the pear trees either do not move or can't. "The trunk scattered with peelings" means there is a trunk of some sort filled with peeling of something. "The sky where the wind's water" means where the sky and the wind's water.

By: Samara

Waves crashing into sand bars
Tourists crowding around like vultures
The sun dips brightening the stars
The season brings family with a side of culture
Music dances off of guitars
Nobody knows where
Nobody knows how
All anyone knows
Is love is in the air



TPCASTT Cont..
Paraphrase-
"Ebbs without haste or sadness" means tidewater is not fast or to slow to be sad. "The ivy" means the ivy. "Incorruptible and black among decaying trees" means the trees are everlasting even though they are decaying. "Along the route soiled by red springs" this means by the route that has soil from red springs.
Connotation-
The first figurative language in this poem is "The hour which clings to each leaf" this is figurative language because hours can not cling to a leaf therefore this is personification. "Or each leaf suspended " this is also personification. "In time which seems to abolish" this type of figurative language is personification because time can't really stop.
Attitude-

I think the attitude of the speaker is uplifting.
Shifts-
In the fist stanza the writer begins talking about time and comparing it to laves but then in the second stanza she starts talking about time not moving and the tide not being fast nor slow. Then in the last stanza she shifts to talking about the ivy on trees and how its decaying but it is still everlasting. Which then brings us to her comparing that to the summer and how the summer is moving fast but not slow and time is changing but it is still everlasting.
Title-
Referring back to what I said about the title before I still think the tile is about summer but throughout the whole poem the writer is comparing summer to being a "time stopper" and how each hour is special. Then she says that time travels fast but not to fast. Then she concludes the poem by saying summer immortal but it is still growing old.
Theme-
I think the theme of this poem is nothing is forever.
Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,

And here on earth come emulating flies,

That though they never equal stars in size,

(And they were never really stars at heart)

Achieve at times a very star-like start.

Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.

Fireflies in the Garden

By Robert Frost
TPCASTT
Title-
The title of this poem is called Fireflies in the Garden so my predication about it is it's going to be about nature.
Paraphrase-
"Here come real stars to fill the upper skies" this means stars are filling the skies. "And here on earth come emulating flies" this means flies are spreading in earth. "That though they never equal stars in size" no stars are equal in size. "Achieve at times a very star-like start" achieve something thats very important at start. "Only, of course, they can't sustain the part" your achievements can't fulfill the part.
Connotation-
Throughout this whole poem I only saw one form of figurative language and that is when the write compared the achievements to a start-like start in line 5.
Attitude-
The speakers attitude in this poem is optimistic because it is comparing fireflies with stars and how fireflies are almost achieving star-like qualities.
Shifts-
On the first lie it says "real stars" and is expressing the stars, but then in line two it shifts to talking about "flies". In t third line is states that no stars are equal in size. Then goes back to stating that fireflies sometimes"achieve" star -like starts. But the shifts back to saying they can't hold the part of being as good as a star.
Title-
Going back to what I said earlier about the title being about fireflies and nature, my predication was on the right path but after reading it I now know that it includes stars.
Theme-
The theme of this poem is that you might start off being equal but in the end one is better then you.

The Summer that we did not prize,
Her treasures were so easy
Instructs us by departing now
And recognition lazy --

Bestirs itself -- puts on its Coat,
And scans with fatal promptness
For Trains that moment out of sight,
Unconscious of his smartness.
The Summer that we did not prize,
By: Emily Dickinson
TPCASTT
Title-
The title this poem is The Summer we did not prize, my guess is that this poem will be about a summer that they did not appreciate.
Paraphrase-
The first line in the poem is the same as the title this means the summer they did not take into prize. The next line is "Her treasures were so easy" meaning all of the traits were so easy to not care about. "Instructs us by departing now" because summer is over they are leaving. "And recognition lazy--" meaning recognize they are lazy. The next line is in the next stanza "Bestirs itself-- puts on its Coat" It puts on its coat because it is getting colder. "And scans with fatal promptness" this line means it is checking just to be early." For Trains that moment out of sight" I think this means the trains that go so fast we loose sight of them. "Unconscious of his smartness" he is obvious of his capabilities.
Connotation-
The first figurative language I saw was on the second line in the first stanza "Her treasures were so easy" this is a use of personification because it is referring back to Summer. "Instructs us by departing now" is a another use of figurative language because it also is referring back to the object summer and how summer is having them leave. "For Trains that moment out of sight" this is personification because trains can't physically moment out of sight.
Attitude-
I think the tone or attitude in this poem is kind of sad because it states how they didn't prize summer and how they took it for granted and other sad things the missed out on.
Shifts-
The first shift in this poem is when when in the third line it states something about leaving because in the first two lines it is expressing how they did not prize summer. Then it shifts and starts talking about putting on a coat for winter because summer is gone. Then in the next line it goes back to stating about the things they didn't appreciate hence the trains moment out of sight.
Title-
Going back to the title again I think instead of just talking about summer i think the deeper meaner to this poem is for a person and how people take don't prize what is offered to them.
Theme-
The theme in this poem is appreciate what you have.
I know I am but summer to your heart,
And not the full four seasons of the year;
And you must welcome from another part
Such noble moods as are not mine, my dear.
No gracious weight of golden fruits to sell
Have I, nor any wise and wintry thing;
And I have loved you all too long and well
To carry still the high sweet breast of Spring.
Wherefore I say: O love, as summer goes,
I must be gone, steal forth with silent drums,
That you may hail anew the bird and rose
When I come back to you, as summer comes.
Else will you seek, at some not distant time,
Even your summer in another clime.
I know I am but summer to your heart
By: Edna St. Vincent Millay
TPCASTT
Title-
The title of this poem is I know I am but summer to your heart I think this poem will be about summer and the writer comparing it to his love.
Paraphrase-
The first line is the same as the title so I predicate the same thing. "And not the full four seasons of the year" meaning I am not all of the four seasons in they year to you. "And you must welcome from another part" this means that you have to welcome other things. "Such noble moods as are not mine, my dear" I think this means there are people with better moods. "No gracious weight of golden fruits to sell" meaning I don't have any good fruits to sell." Have I, nor any wise and wintry thing:" I don't have anything good for you either. "And I have loved you all too long and well"this means I loved you to long and well."To carry still the high sweet breast of Spring" meaning that spring is very fresh and new. "Whenever I say: O love, as summer comes" the writer is in love when summer comes." I must be gone, steal fort with silent drums" meaning I must leave silently. "That you may hail anew the bird and rose" means you can take away the birds and roses. " When I come back to you, as summer comes" when I come back to you during summer. "Else will you seek, at some not distant time" this means what will you seek in the future." The last line is "Even your summer in another clime" you will seek this even in your summer.
TPCASTT
Connotation-
The line "I know I am but summer to your heart" this is figurative language because it is stating summer is in your heart that is called hyperbole. The second line has a little bit of alteration "full four". The next line compares noble moods to him "noble moods as are not mine". On the 8 line it states "To carry still the high sweet breast of Spring" this is personification because spring does not have sweet breast. But throughout the whole poem the writer is comparing his love to summer.
Attitude-
In my opinion I think the attitude in this poem is loving because in this poem it has some type of melody that flows with his heart.
Shifts-
In this poem the first line starts off with a pro about his love comparing it to summer then it shifts to a but and this pattern continuous throughout the poem.
Title-
After evaluating this poem I soon noticed that this poem is more about love then summer, and that summer is not the main subject.
Theme- The theme of this poem is strong love.
