The Rider by Naomi Shihab Nye
Transcript of The Rider by Naomi Shihab Nye
She spent most of her teenage years in Jerusalem
Which was where she got most of her inspiration for her poems
Naomi said that “the primary source of poetry has always been local life, random characters met on the streets, our own ancestry sifting down to us through small essential daily tasks.” Naomi Nye The Rider Attitude The poem gives a feel of the authors loneliness and a desperate need for something more. Shifts She shifts from curiosity into desperation and from desperation into a giddy and joyful mood. " What I wonder tonight
pedaling hard down King William Street is if it translates to bicycles" "A Victory! To leave your loneliness
panting behind you on some street corner
while you float free into a cloud of sudden azaleas..." Title (part 2) Theme Now I think she named the poem after the roller-skater, who had given her the advice. You can always get away from your pain or loneliness but you must work for it, you must "pedal hard". Works Sited http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/naomi-shihab-nye
