17 “Traveling Through the Dark” Traveling through the dark I found a deer dead on the edge of the Wilson River road. It is usually best to roll them into the canyon: that road is narrow; to swerve might make more dead. By glow of the tail-light I stumbled back of the car and stood by the heap, a doe, a recent killing; she had stiffened already, almost cold. I dragged her off; she was large in the belly.
18 My fingers touching her side brought me the reason-her side was warm; her fawn lay there waiting, alive, still, never to be born. Beside that mountain road I hesitated. The car aimed ahead its lowered parking lights; under the hood purred the steady engine. I stood in the glare of the warm exhaust turning red; around our group I could hear the wilderness listen. I thought hard for us all--my only swerving-- then pushed her over the edge into the river.by William Stafford
19 Bloom’s Questions Knowledge: Who is the author of the poem? Comprehension: Summarize the events in the poem.Application: Write a list of interview questions you would ask if you had the opportunity to talk to the narrator.Analysis: Select a word or phrase from each stanza of the poem. How do these words / phrases contribute to the story told by the poet?Synthesis: Imagine that you had been the person who found the dead deer. Write a new stanza for the poem, telling what you would have done.Evaluation: Did the narrator make the right choice? Why or why not?

To whom is he referring?Author & Me: Do you think the narrator made a wise decision?On My Own: What would you have done if faced with the same decision the narrator in the poem had to make?
