Reading Skills and Strategies Poetry
  • Look for punctuation in the poem telling you
    where sentences begin and end.
  • Do not make a full stop at the end of a line if
    there is no period, comma, colon, semicolon, or
    dash there.
  • If a passage of a poem is difficult to
    understand, look for the subject, verb, and
    complement of each sentence.

  • The images in this poem come from the speakers
    everyday life.
  • She reveals her wonderment by giving each image a
    special role in her day and poem. Some of the
    simple things are compared to awe-inspiring
    concepts.

10
Daily by Naomi Shihab Nye
  • Write a catalog poem or paragraph that lists
    images of things in your daily life that are
    miracles or make you happy to be alive.

11
Take notes on important elements of Diego
Rivera's The Grinder subject, colors, shapes,
the feelings it evokes, the story you see in it.
12
Question 1, p. 498
  • When you think of images in the world that give
    you joy or that fill you with wonder, do you look
    at ordinary things, as Nye does? Talk over your
    responses to the poets source of wonder and joy.

13
Question 2, p. 498
  • What do Nyes particular images tell you about
    her life and where she lives?
  • Images of planting corn and beans and frying
    tortillas suggest that Nye lives in the American
    southwest images of housework suggest that she
    has a home and a family to care for images of
    typing suggest that she writes.

  • Number of Stanzas?
  • Number of Lines per Stanza?
  • Speaker?
  • Rhyme Scheme?
  • Examples of repetition?
  • Examples of imagery?

17
Haiku 1 Miura Chora Get out of my road and
allow me to plant these bamboos, Mr. Toad. 
What does this haiku reveal about the speakers
view of living creatures?
18
Haiku 2 Chiyo A morning glory Twined round the
bucket I will ask my neighbor for water. 
In haiku, comparisons are suggested, but not
stated directly. What comparison is suggested in
this haiku?
Why does the speaker need to get water from the
neighbor?
19
Haiku 3 Matsuo Basho The old pond A frog
jumps in Sound of water. 
What might the speaker be doing?
Traditional haiku contain kigo, or words
associated with a season. The Japanese would
know, for example, that snow indicates winter and
evening showers mean that it is summer. Here,
the word frog suggests spring.
20
Haiku 4 Kobayashi Issa A dragonfly!The distant
hillsReflected in his eyes.
Punctuation in a haikucolons, dashes, or
exclamation marksindicate a shift in subject or
mood. Ask students to practice reading the haiku
aloud, capturing the change in the speakers mood
after his surprise at seeing the dragonfly.
21
Question 1, p. 507 Haiku and Fog
  • All of these poems contain images of moments and
    miracles in nature. What image in the haiku, in
    Fog, and in in Just- did you find most
    striking, original, or powerful? 

22
Question 2, p. 507 Haiku
  • One of the characteristics of a haiku is that it
    presents a moment of discovery or revelation. In
    your own words, describe the moment frozen in
    each of the haiku in this group of poems.

23
Question 3, p. 507 Haiku
  • In Chiyos haiku, the plant is a morning glory.
    How could these words also describe what the poet
    experienced at her morning encounter?

24
Question 7, p. 507 Haiku
  • Inside each of the haiku there is a person. Put
    yourself in each persons shoes, one by one.
    Consider 
  • In the first haiku, do you wait for the toad to
    move, or do you poke it? 
  • In the second haiku, do you ever use that bucket
    again? 
  • In the third haiku, what do you think you were
    doing the minute before the frog jumped in? 
  • In the fourth haiku, how long are you able to see
    the hills?

My Papas Waltz Theodore Roethke        The
whiskey on your breath        Could make a small
boy dizzy        But I hung on like
death                                           
  Such waltzing was not easy.5      We romped
until the pans         Slid from the kitchen
shelf         My mothers countenance       
Could not unfrown itself.        The hand that
held my wrist10    Was battered on one knuckle
        At every step you missed         My
right ear scraped a buckle.        You beat
time on my head         With a palm caked hard
by dirt,15    Then waltzed me off to bed
        Still clinging to your shirt.
Listen for the waltzing rhythm created by the
words in this poem.

Bending, I bow my headAnd lay my hand uponHer
hair, combing, and thinkHow women do this
forEach other. My daughters hairCurls against
the comb, Wet and fragrantorangeParings. Her
face, downcast, Is quiet for one so young.I
take her place. Beneath My mothers hands I
feelThe braids drawn up tight As a piano wire
and singing, Vinegar-rinsed. SittingBefore the
oven I hear The orange coils tick The early
hour before school.She combed her grandmother
Mathildas hair usingA comb made out of bone.
Mathilda rocked her oak-wood Chair, her face
downcast, Intent on tearing rags In strips to
braid a cottonRug from bits of orange And
brown. A simple act,Preparing hair. Something
Women do for each other, Plaiting the
generations.

  What happens to a dream deferred?        Does
it dry up        like a raisin in the
sun?        Or fester like a sore 5      And
then run?        Does it stink like rotten
meat?        Or crust and sugar over       
like a syrupy sweet?         Maybe it just
sags10    like a heavy load.        Or does it
explode?
