Art & Figurative Language (Requirements 3-5)

Example for #4 - A poem written by Ms. B. Ewell

The Old Guitarist

Lost

in a blue sea of despair

music is his life preserver.

Through the waves of joy and pain

he strokes the strings

like a swimmer

caught in the currents

pleading

for the safeness of

the shore.
