Poems

Read the 1st poem below (The Wind).

  • Who wrote it?
Christina Rossetti (poet)

Read the 2nd poem below (Storm Wind).

  • Is this the same theme as the first poem?
  • Is it written by the same poet (a person who writes poems)?
Christina Rossetti (poet)

Read the 3rd poem below (Whistling Wind).

  • Is this the same theme as the first and second poem?
  • Is it written by the same person?
Christina Rossetti (poet)

 

  1. What is each poem about?

  2. What is different about these three poems? (think about what each one is specifically about)

  3. Read through each poem again and try to find the rhyming words

  4. On the 3rd poem, look at the words ‘wandering’ & ‘whistling’. What do these words mean? (notice that even though we know what the words mean, they are hard to define)

  5. Look at all the poems again and show how each word chosen is exactly the right word for the context! (could they be powerful verbs)
