1 Poetry By : Karlee Post Mrs. Willis

2 I’M NOBODY! WHO ARE YOU? I’m nobody! Who are you? Are you---nobody---too? Then there’s a pair of us! Don’t tell! They’d advertise-know! How dreary—to be—somebody! How public—like a frog— simile To tell one’s name– thee livelong June— To an admiring bog! repition

3 The moon is tired? Is the moon tired? She looks so pale within her misty veil: She scales from the sky east to west And takes no rest Before the coming of the night The moon shows papery white; Before the dawning of the day She fades away PERSONIFICATION

4 Mooses the goofy moose, the walking frame, is lost in the forest. He bumps, he blunders, he stands. With massy bony thoughts sticking out near his ears reaching out palms upwards, to catch whatever might be falling from heaven He tries to think, leaning huge weight on lectern of his front legs. He can’t find the world! Where did it go? What does a world look like? The moose crashes on, and crashes into a lake and stares at the mountain and cries “where do I belong? this is no place!” He turns out and drags the lake out after him and charges the cackling air brush he meets another moose. He stares, he thinks ”It’s only a mirror!” Where is the world? O my lost world! And why am I so ugly? And why am I so far away from my feet? He weeps. Hopeless drops drip from his droopy lips. The other just stands there doing the same. Tow dopes deep into the woods. ALLITERATION HYPERBOLE

5 Fog The fog comes from on little cat feet. It sits over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on. metaphor
