1 7 th Grade Poetry Packet: Assigned Monday, May 9 th Due: Tuesday, May 24 th Over the next few weeks, you will review and learn some new terms related to poetry. You will look at different styles of poems and read a variety of poetry as well. Best of all, you will get to create some poetry too! Follow the guidelines and pay attention to your final deadline! 1. Read through the explanation of poetry. 2. Look up the poetry terms included with the instructions. You may use a dictionary or look them up online. You might want to look at examples to help clarify the meaning. 3. Read the instructions about analyzing a poem (TP-CASST) and choose between the two included poems Oranges or Pretty Words and perform an analysis. 4. Reread the sample poems and answer the questions connected with each poem. 5. Look for poems that you find interesting and include your favorite poem. At the bottom of the page where you type or rewrite the poem (and author), please write about why you like it. 6. Review the instructions for the various styles of poems and follow the directions for completing and collecting your poems. 7. Create a cover page with a nice background and the following information: Poetry Packet, By (your name), Teacher name, Date, Period 8. Get a folder and follow the included table of contents for organizing your final product. Put this after your cover page in folder. 9. Make sure all poetry you write is solely your own. Do not copy from the internet or get big sister to do it for you. Poetry is personal. It doesn t have to be award winning! What is poetry? There are as many definitions of poetry as there are poets. Wordsworth defined poetry as "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings;" and Dylan Thomas defined poetry this way: "Poetry is what makes me laugh or cry or yawn, what makes my toenails twinkle, what makes me want to do this or that or nothing." Poetry Terms: Please look up these terms and write the definitions: Stanza Theme Connotation Allusion Denotation Figurative Alliteration Language Onomatopoeia Imagery Using TP-CASTT to Analyze Poetry Diction Tone T Title What do the words of the title suggest to you? What denotations are presented in the title? What connotations or associations do the words possess? P Paraphrase Translate the poem in your own words. What is the poem about? C Connotation What meaning does the poem have beyond the literal meaning? Fill in the chart below. Form Diction Imagery Point of View Details Allusions Symbolism Figurative Language Other Devices A Attitude What is the speaker s attitude? How does the speaker feel about himself, about others, and about the subject? What is the author s attitude? How does the author feel about the speaker, about other characters, about the subject, and the reader? S Shifts Where do the shifts in tone, setting, voice, etc. occur? Look for time and place, keywords, punctuation, stanza divisions, changes in length or rhyme, and sentence structure. What is the purpose of each shift? How do they contribute to effect and meaning? T Title Reanalyze the title on an interpretive level. What part does the title play in the overall interpretation of the poem? T Theme List the subjects and the abstract ideas in the poem. Then determine the overall theme. What message is the author trying to convey? What lesson is being taught? The theme must be written in a complete sentence.

4 Oranges by Gary Soto The first time I walked With a girl, I was twelve, Cold, and weighted down With two oranges in my jacket. 5 December. Frost cracking Beneath my steps, my breath Before me, then gone, As I walked toward Her house, the one whose 10 Porch light burned yellow Night and day, in any weather. A dog barked at me, until She came out pulling At her gloves, face bright The lady s eyes met mine, 40 And held them, knowing Very well what it was all About. Outside, A few cars hissing past, 15 With rouge. I smiled, Touched her shoulder, and led Her down the street, across A used car lot and a line Of newly planted trees, 20 Until we were breathing Before a drugstore. We Entered, the tiny bell, Bringing a saleslady Down a narrow aisle of goods. 25 I turned to the candies Tiered like bleachers 45 Fog hanging like old Coats between trees. I took my girl s hand In mine for two blocks, Then released it to let 50 Her unwrap the chocolate. And asked what she wanted--- Light in her eyes, a smile Starting at the corners 30 Of her mouth. I fingered A nickel in my pocket, And when she lifted a chocolate That cost a dime, I didn t say anything. 35 I took the nickel from My pocket, then an orange, And set them quietly on The counter. When I looked up, I peeled my orange That was so bright against The gray of December That, from some distance, 55 Someone might have thought I was making a fire in my hands.

5 Pretty Words By Elinor Wylie Poets make pets of pretty, docile words: I love smooth words, like gold-enameled fish Which circle slowly with a silken swish, And tender ones, like downy-feathered birds: 5 Words shy and dappled, deep-eyed deer in herds, Come to my hands, and playful if I wish, Or purring softly at a silver dish, Blue Persian kittens, fed on cream and curds. I love bright words, words up and singing early; 10 Words that are luminous in the dark, and sing; Warm lazy words, white cattle under trees; I love words opalescent, cool and pearly, Like midsummer moths, and honeyed words like bees, Gilded and sticky, with a little sting.

6 Oranges 1. What happens to the two oranges from line 4 that the speaker had in his jacket? Cite evidence from the poem to support your answer. 2. What does the word weighted mean as it is used in the phrase weighted down in line 3 of the poem? Use the context clues in lines 3-4 to define the meaning of the word. Write your definition of weighted and tell how you figured out the word s meaning. 3. Highlight an example of alliteration in lines Why do you think the poet uses alliteration in these lines? What does the use of this poetic element add to the poem? Cite specific evidence from the text. 4. Highlight an example of onomatopoeia in lines What effect does the use of onomatopoeia have on the mood in these lines of the poem? Make annotations to record specific textual evidence to support your answer. 5. What is the theme of the poem? How does the theme illustrate the challenges of human interactions? Highlight examples of human interactions in the poem. Cite specific evidence from the text as support. Pretty Words Questions 1. What does the word docile mean? 2. If you were to rename the poem, what would you call it? Explain your reasons. 3. What is alliteration? Can you find examples of this in the poem? 4. What animal does Elinor Wylie refer to that is not as docile as the others? Why might she have included that one? 5. How could words be considered pets? 6. Have you ever heard the word pet used to describe something other than an animal? List as many ways as you can. How do you think these phrases developed? 7. Are there words whose sound is offensive to you? Can you separate the sound of a word from its meaning
