come enjoy poetry from the boyd seventh and sixth and fifth graders here is one of the poems that will be shown
of a spoiled prince a moonlit dash
an unruly love full of
love death marriage and beauty the end
this thursday at boyd intermiadate and middle school cafeteria
hollywood is where dreams are born
hollywood is where they are crushed
in hollywood you make it or you dont
you may be scowled you may be shamed
but hollywood is always the same the moonlit streets or the sparkly set
someday you will have fame instead of shame
but until then hollywood is the game you play

Rain of Statues
This poem is about a group of roman that the shipwrecked by the wrath of Poseidon it uses figurative language and sound devices to help better explain what is happening.
This poem uses a simile “he swam like a fish getting chased by a shark.”To say that the person swam extremely fast and at an astonishing speed for a human the meaning of this is that he was scared and his fear powered him to swim extremely fast.
This poem also uses sound devices such as, crash, snap, pop, and crack To help better explain what is happening and to make the poem more intense when they hit the wave that makes them sink they hear “CRASH” signifying that they got hit.
The meaning to my poem to me since this poem was wrote in the late roman time period is that you shouldn’t anger the gods and pillage and plunder there temples or you will face the consequences and the figurative language and sound devices like “crash “and “he swam like a fish getting chased by a shark “to help set where this poem took place at and the sound devices make it more intense and help you know that there are many things going on like the ship sinking etc.
All and all this is a good poem for ages10-20 because of how it takes place and happens then the plot and why it happened would take to interest for the younger adult minds. This poem also has many examples of figurative language and would be a good poem to use to teach figurative language.
