Poetry Quest #5

    I finished my job on Poetry Quest #5. I found the top tree poems that I liked. I found the book at my school Library. And the book is called My Dog May Be Genius.

I chose my favorite poem and here is.

I Do Not Like November
I do not like November.
November is not fun.
I do not mind the other months,
But I truly dread this one.

It is the month we celebrate
Thanksgiving in our land.
Alas, I am a turkey-
perhaps you understand.

I chose this poem because it is November. I like this poem because I like turkeys. And I feel bad if I were a turkey and I got eaten, but I would still be delicious. I found the Poetic Elements the author of this poem used repetition, personification, lines, and stanzas.

Here is a poem I thought was a great poem
I thought I saw
I thought I saw a BBBBBBBBBBB
dive into the CCCCCCC.
Could I believe my own II?
I'm not sure, I'm not YY.

I chose this poem because because instead of using words the poet used letters that are like homophones to each other like Bee and B are homophones to each other. And another example that the poet used is Sea is a homophone the the letter C. The poetic elements that the poet used is lines, stanza, repetition, and the last is hyperbole.

I found another poem that I like but it was the third most favorite poem in this book.

I Peered in the Mirror
I peered in the mirror,
the mirror fell down.
I glanced at my shadow,
it sped out of town.

I watched my reflection
swim off to sea-
there's something peculiar
today about me.

I chose this poem for two reasons, the first reason is because it is just funny and I like things that are funny and that can't happen in real life. And the second reason is it is just I poem that I really like the part I like the most about this poem is where it says that the reflection swam off to sea. The poetic elements are lines, stanzas, personification, and finally hyperbole.
