For your first blog post, worth a quiz grade, you must write a poem about yourself through the perspective of someone else. This perspective can be through the eyes of a parent or guardian, a sibling, another family member, a pet, a teacher, a co-worker, someone at a store, or anyone else you may think of. This poem should reveal something about you without directly saying it. This poem does NOT have a set format, although it must be 10-15 lines long.
This is due at the end of class today, September 9th, 2015.
Ms. Barbour, through her dog's eyes:
When I'm hungry, she is the one I go to.
I jump up and down, up and down, up and down until she notices me.
I know it's not time for "breakfast" or "dinner" as she calls them,
but I'll try to win this battle and get my food.
If this doesn't work, she'll tell me it's too early, then wink and give me a treat.
When I'm feeling like the world is going to cave in, she's the one I trust.
She'll hold me close and scratch my ears, soothing me.
In return, I'll give her kisses and protect her from the wind, garbage truck, and doorbell to the best of my ability.
Nothing is better than when she holds me tight and says, "You're my little guy."
She is my world, and there's nobody else I'd rather have as my human.
Ms. Barbour is an 11th grade English and Poetry teacher at Franklin High School.
