Summer Reading

Books that I would recommend….

Second Chance Summer ( sad but good)

Cinder (If you have not read it), and Scarlet (the second book to Cinder, parody to red riding hood)

All these books are really good for summer reading. I hope you guys have a great summer!

GolEm

A praha folk tale in formation of a poem

The king needed some guards ,

for times were hard,

and then came Golem.

the king confided in his wizard,

he could turn a cat to a lizard,

he made Golem.

earth, stone, tree

no brain, no heart,

that was Golem.

Golem worked for the king

the people could dance and sing

then Golem found the little girl

the king’s daughter.

despite the fact he had no heart

he loved the princess, but she was smart,

she ran to her father telling him all,

the people became scared of the king’s downfall

because if he had a heart, he would soon have a mind,

and the kings quarters he would soon find

so Golem went to sleep.

Golem went to a sleep he would never awake from

and turned back into the mud that he was made from

much to the wizard’s discontent

GOLEM WOULD NEVER RISE AGAIN

Help me keep Golem alive, please comment

A very confusing paragraph

Think about thoughts. Thinking of thoughts makes you think of where thoughts come from. What is wonder? Wonder is what makes you wonder about thoughts.

Think about painting a picture of you painting a picture of you painting a picture. Now where are you? Is someone painting a picture of you?

If you could live forever what would you do? Think.

Think about when you were really little… Now say out loud what you were doing in this memory. Think about what you are saying, does it make sense?

Picture yourself falling, are you scared?

If you were in water while it was pitch black, with only a little bit of air in your lungs, witch way would you swim?

WHY ARE HUMANS NOT LIKE ANIMALS?

WE       ARE       UN        PREDICT      ABLE

t         h        i      n       k   .    .    .   .   .   .

Now leave me a comment if you get the purpose of this paragraph, or if you can answer this riddle below

HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN  COLORS TO A BLIND PERSON?

 

 

TRAIN TRACK

Train Track

 

A long long long road,

waiting,

for,

Something to happen,

Never, and always,

Moving,

Under a gray sky.

 

Endless things they see,

They watch happen,

slowly,

slowly,

slowly.

 

When they become old,

like any other,

they are travled,

less,

less,

less.

 

But when I,

see a,

Lonely train track,

I will be that last train,

to,

travel,

quietly down that,

old…

train…

track…

click, clack,

click, clack,

click, clack

click.

My Literary Language Looker

BOOK: Poetry for Young People, Emily Dickinson QUOTE: An everywhere of silver, With ropes of sand ,To keep it effacing, The track called land. From page 10 TITLE OF POEM: Sea

This quote is an example of Consonance: When words share the same consonant sound, this quote has S’s and the sound ssssssss as in effacing, sand, silver.

Rhyme Scheme: Patterns of repeating sound or letters, usually describing what the poem is about, like this quote is about the sea and the sea makes the sound sssssss.

I think this quote is a good example of consonance because the poem’s subject is the sea and its repeating sound is sssssssssss also I think the poems consonance gives it imagery along with the describing words.

Ghost stories; passion number 2

I recently found another passion! For the past two weeks I have been hooked on ghost stories by this brilliant author named Mary Downing Hahn. Her bests ( that I have read ) are All The Lovely Bad Ones , The Doll in the Garden , and Dapphene’s Book. I like Dapphene’s Book the best, but funny, that one wasn’t really a ghost story. Still…..

If you really like ghost stories you have to check them out!

If you have all ready, then you are awesome. 🙂

If you like ghost stories also go to this site:http://www.americanfolklore.net/spooky-stories.html

On this site I learned about ghost stories that are WAY more scary than regular ones. I also learned another version of  Bloody Mary. The ones on this site is not as touching and funny, it is more directed to scare you.

As always, Rosalee
