ELA A10 Sept 12/16 Poetry Activity B – “Silver”
Some poems are written as Choral poems, meant to be read aloud but in groups to really explore the rhythm and rhyme of the wording. For this poem activity, you and your partner will practice reading the poem out together with exaggeration to develop the rhythm and then you’ll record and publish a Fotobabble of your poetry reading/speaking.
You can publish the Fotobabble to
- both your blogs under the A2 section label
- and post a Link to your Fotobabble as a comment to this post.
Walter de la Mare
Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees,
Silver fruit upon silver trees;
One by one the casements catch
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch;
Couched in his kennel, like a log,
With paws of silver sleeps the dog;
From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep
Of doves in a silver-feathered sleep;
A harvest mouse goes scampering by,
With silver claws and a silver eye;
And moveless fish in the water gleam,
By silver reeds in a silver stream.
