Transcript of Poem Portolio

The teapot sang as the water boiled
The ice cubes cackled in their glass
the teacups chattered to one another.
While the chairs were passing gas
The gravy gurgled merrily
As the oil danced in a pan.
Oh my dinnertime chorus
What a lovely, lovely clan!
Poem seven: Dinnertime chorus
electric vines hang from branch to branch
busy little ants run along the jungle floor
metal birds, flying overhead
huge concrete trees, rising from the ground
glass leaves reflecting the sun
Poem six: Concrete jungle, by Andrew Gillette
Rabbits running so very fast
In the field of green, green grass.
Sniffing for scents of snack time treats,
Hippity Hopping on their happy bunny feet.
When carrots and other foods are found
The rabbits prance and pounce.
Poem five: Fast rabbits
The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
Poem three: fog, by Carl Sandburg
Poem one: Lightning, by Andrew Gillette

clouds dark and dreary, about to burst with rain black sky, thunder rumbles like a rolling train. Rain is getting nearer, look outside the window. Cold glass, about
to get colder BAM thunder comes again, accompanied by a friend, the rain comes down, finally, drumming against the ground puddles come around but

nothings finished yet
BANG white streak
across the sky
its always fun
to watch the
lightning come
down, shooting
towards the
ground. I
watch until
its over,
spectacular light show, until the last drop of rain, the last rumble of thunder, and until the last streak of lightning, hits the ground below

Loud footfalls, breathing
warm blood, cold air, running feet
silence, alone, fast
Poem two: Running, by Andrew Gillette
fur is everywhere, all day
and yet the dog gets to stay.
rips and tears are everywhere
and still our house, we have to share.
this fuzzy terror, roaming the house
pretty much good for nothing, can't even catch a mouse!
but she greets, everyone she meets
with unmatched enthusiasm
she runs and rolls, and lays and plays
but now its night, and time to call it, a day
Poem four: My dog, by Andrew Gillette
a supermarket:
in someone's cart -- beef, beer,
flowers and a child
Poem 8: unknown title
Poem Portfolio
By Andrew Gillette
The poetic form in the poem Lightning, by Andrew Gillette, is concrete, which is a poem that takes on the shape of its subject. In the first 4 lines, the words make a cloud, the next 11 lines form a bolt of lightning, and the last 2 lines make the ground. This contributes to the poem because not only is there a mental image of someone watching a lightning storm, but a visual of the lightning itself. Therefore, the poetic form of this poem is concrete.
Running, by Andrew Gillette, is a haiku that uses juxtaposition. Juxtaposition is putting two unlike things together to show their differences. For example, in line two it says “warm blood, cold air” this is essentially putting hot and cold next to each other, and showing how they’re different. There is also juxtaposition between lines one and three, “loud footfalls, breathing” “silence, alone, fast”, this shows the difference between the beginning of the race, with everyone packed tightly together, and the middle, where people are spread out, and on their own. Therefore, this poem uses juxtaposition and is in the form of a haiku

The poetic form used by Carl Sandburg, is free verse, with personification. A free verse poem is a poem with no rhyme or rhythm, and sounds like regular speech. Personification is when human characteristics are given to non-human things.We can see that its free verse because of the way it doesn't fit into any other forms of poetry (elegy, haiku, sonnet, etc.,). The poem could be an elegy, but it is not about mourning the death of a subject, so it is therefore free verse.The personification is mainly in line three, but also in line two. In line two, though the personification isn't necessarily a human characteristic, is it a characteristic that doesn't belong to fog, and does come from a live creature. Therefore, this poem is free verse, with personification.
My dog, by Andrew Gillette is a poem that uses rhyme as a poetic device. Rhyme is the repetition of the same sound at the end of lines. The rhyme pattern is a simple AA, BB, but this is not strictly the case, as this pattern is broken in line 8. Although there is one break in the poems rhyme scheme, it is still a rhyming poem with AA BB pattern. The poem itself is simply about the authors dog, how energetic, crazy, and slightly destructive it can be. In line 8, the author tells how excited the dog is to see him/everyone every day, which shows that he does appreciate having the dog, even though its a pain sometimes. Therefore, the poem My dog by Andrew Gillette uses rhyme as its poetic device
Fast Rabbits, by an unknown author, uses alliteration, which is the repetition of sounds at the beginning of words. There is alliteration in every line of the poem, some examples are Rabbits|running, green|grass, sniffing|scents. The alliteration used in this poem helps the poem flow, and feel young and vibrant. Therefore, Fast rabbits uses alliteration to have a young, vibrant feel.
Concrete jungle, by Andrew Gillette, uses metaphors as a poetic device. In each line, something from the jungle is compared to a populated city. People on the sidewalk are compared to ants, power/telephone lines compared to vines, and skyscrapers compared to trees. I think that this was done because of the way that large, modern cities are called concrete jungles. Also, to provide some small imagery of a literal concrete jungle. Therefore, Concrete jungle uses metaphors as it poetic device.
Dinnertime chorus, by an unknown author, uses lots of personification, which is giving human characteristics to nonhuman things. Some examples of this are “the teapot sang”, “ice cubes cackled”, “teacups chattered”. The large amount of personification makes the image come alive instead of a static still-life like picture. Therefore, Dinnertime chorus uses personification to make what it’s describing come alive, rather than be a more boring, simple image.

This unnamed haiku, by Alexey Andreyev, uses juxtaposition, the comparing of two things to show their differences. The juxtaposition is seen in line 2 and 3. Its comparing beef and beer, and flowers and a child. The beer, could possibly show an unhappy relationship, the flowers further that point. The beer could also show irresponsibility for the child. The beef appears to be dinner. I think that the juxtaposition used in this poem makes it sad, dreary, and give it a deeper meaning. Therefore, this poem uses juxtaposition as a poetic device.
