Transcript of Point of View of a Snowflake

Example Poem:
"Snowflake" by Elaine George
A fragile winter butterfly
Flutters from the sky
So soft and yet her heart
Is cold and made of ice
But if I warm it
She will melt and die
I look down
at the ground
I fall peacefully
making a sound
but a
pattern across the sky

I wave to the world
As the wind blows by,
I touch my feet to the floor
Like a plane landing nearby

I do what all good snowflakes do
swaddle the earth
like a mother would her child.
My Poem: "Snowflake" by Lindsey Charles

My poem is written in first-person point of view, because the snowflake is telling the story about itself, referring to itself as “I,” and telling its own story. The snowflake is the narrator in this poem about itself.

I know this because of the lines:
"I look down at the ground, as I fall peacefully,"
"I wave to the world,"
"I touch my feet to the floor,"
"I do what all good snowflakes do"

All of these lines show that the snowflake is the narrator and is referring to itself as "I."

Point of View
This poem uses third person point of view because someone else is talking about the snowflake and describing it.

I know this because of the lines:
"So soft and yet her heart"
"But if I warm it
She will melt and die"

These lines of the poem show that someone besides the snowflake is speaking, because they are calling the snowflake a "her" and "she."
Point of View
from the sky"

"So soft and yet
her heart
Is cold and made of ice

She will melt
Snowflakes! They are diverse!
Thank you for watching my Prezi presentation :)
The End
Personification affects my poem by making it more fun and interesting. The poem is called "Snowflake" and it is a snowflake talking about itself and what it does. It is fun because the snowflake comes alive through the use of personification and it can identify with people reading the poem because it is human-like. I enjoy the use of personification in creating poems about non-human things, because it is fun to make things that are not alive come alive through words.
Personification Affects My Poem
Through this project, I learned that personification can make any object "come alive" and seem like a human.

The most challenging part about this project was writing my own poem from the point of view of a snowflake. Writing poetry can be difficult.

The best part about this project was being able to create it using Prezi, because I enjoy working on the computer in creative ways.

I enjoy the poem that I wrote. I worked hard on it and I think that the way the snowflake comes alive in the poem makes it fun.

Personification Affects the Poem
Personification affects this poem by making it seem more life-like. Talking about the snowflake as if it were alive and human creates an interesting and fun affect, because we see the snowflake as being like us. I enjoy the personification in this poem because it creates a light, fun mood.
