Hw review

HW Review

It Seems I Test People by James Berry

My skin sun-mixed like basic earth

my voice having tones of thunder

my laughter working all of me as I laugh

my walk motioning strong swings

it seems I test people

Always awaiting a move

waiting always to recreate my view

my eyes packed with hellos behind them

my arrival bringing departures

it seems I test people

Your world by georgia douglas johnson

Your World by Georgia Douglas Johnson

  • Your world is as big as you make itI know, for I used to abideIn the narrowest nest in a cornerMy wings pressing close to my sideBut I sighted the distant horizonWhere the sky-line encircled the seaAnd I throbbed with a burning desireTo travel this immensity.I battered the cordons around meAnd cradled my wings on the breezeThen soared to the uttermost reacheswith rapture, with power, with ease!

The pasture by robert frost

The Pasture by Robert Frost

  • I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;I'll only stop to rake the leaves away(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):I shan't be gone long. -- You come too. I'm going out to fetch the little calfThat's standing by the mother. It's so young,It totters when she licks it with her tongue.I shan't be gone long. -- You come too.

  • Robert Frost
