English III Honors
Whitecaps on the bay:
A broken signboard banging
In the April wind.
A hospital is a white shell on a beachBleached bare and lodged in the sandThe ocean washes over itIt sometimes buries itBut a hospital remains unmoved by thisWhatever changes could occur already haveAny color it might have had has washed awayOr been ground into the sandIt shines in the sun but people walk around itThey sense that they should not touch itThey should not pick it up and add it to their collectionThere is nothing wrong with a hospitalBut it is a shell no one wants to ownThey want to leave it
They want to walk away
Ode on a Grecian Urn
THOU still unravish'd bride of quietness,
Thou foster-child of Silence and slow Time,
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme:
What leaf-fringed legend haunts about thy shape 5 Of deities or mortals, or of both,
In Tempe or the dales of Arcady?
What men or gods are these?
What maidens loth? What mad pursuit?
What struggle to escape?
What pipes and timbrels?
What wild ecstasy?
After the Sea-Ship by Walt Whitman
After the Sea-Ship—after the whistling winds;
After the white-gray sails, taut to their spars and ropes,
Below, a myriad, myriad waves, hastening, lifting up their necks,
Tending in ceaseless flow toward the track of the ship:
Waves of the ocean, bubbling and gurgling, blithely prying,
Waves, undulating waves—liquid, uneven, emulous waves,
Toward that whirling current, laughing and buoyant, with curves,
Where the great Vessel, sailing and tacking, displaced the surface;
The other poems are formally written (Haiku) or your choice.

Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees
