Homework: Bob Dylan – Blowin' in the Wind


How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.


Yes, 'n how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n how many times can a man turn his head,
And pretend that he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.



Yes, 'n how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

 by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

TREES

Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918
Trees
I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
  
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;
  
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
  
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
  
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
  
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Joyce Kilmer

Mooses Come Walking




    Mooses Come Walking

    Mooses come walking up over the hill.
    Mooses come walking. They rarely stand still
    When mooses come walking, they walk where they will.
    And mooses come walking up over the hill.
    Mooses look into your window at night.
    They look to the left and they look to the right.
    The mooses are smiling; they think it’s a zoo.
    That’s why the mooses like looking at you.
    So, if you see mooses while lying in bed,
    It’s best to just stay there, pretending you’re dead.
    The mooses will leave, and you’ll get the thrill
    Of seeing the mooses go over the hill.

Cynthia in the Snow

Cynthia in the Snow


It SHUSHES
It hushes
The loudness in the road.
It flitter-twitters,
And laughs away from me.
It laughs a lovely whiteness,
And whitely whirls away,
To be
Some otherwhere,
Still white as milk or shirts,
So beautiful it hurts.

Come Little Leaves: George Cooper

Come Little Leaves: George Cooper
Said the wind one day,
“Come over the meadows
With me, and play;
Put on your dresses
Of red and gold;
Summer is gone,
And the days grow cold.”
Soon as the leaves
Heard the wind’s loud call,
Down they came fluttering,
One and all;
Over the meadows
They danced and flew,
Singing the soft
Little songs they knew.
Dancing and flying
The little leaves went;
Winter had called them
And they were content-
Soon fast asleep
In their earthy beds,
The snow laid a soft mantle
Over their heads.

A new week had started.
It was monday, I sat on my chair doing morning writing as usual. When I finished I went for recess. On that day we did a running race in which I came second. Listening to the whistle from the yard teacher, we started to make a queue and go to the classroom.

In class we studied Maths till lunch. We learnt about how to  round numbers to the nearest ten, and some people did equal rounding and decimals. Mr.Ross also told us about our Math’s group. There were three groups named blue, green and red. I was in the green group.

After Maths we went for lunch. There was a very long queue of students waiting to get lunch. After around 7 min. finally it was my turn. I  took my lunch and sat at my table. After finishing my food  I went to play soccer.

Coming back from soccer  now it was reading time. We read for around 40 minutes and after that we did U.O.I. Mr.Ross taught us about limerick and soon it was home time. Before going home we needed to submit the drawing for the art contest.That was the 8 hours of school.

The next day was Tuesday. Everything was almost similar as monday except few. On Tuesday we learned about psalms. Mr. Ross told us psalm 150. It was about how to worship God in different ways.
He also told us about different kind of poetries. After recess he told Joon and Yuki who were absent, how to do the song assignment by showing our videos. He also told us about personification. Soon it was lunch  time. After lunch he read us the book Highwayman then wrote about it and went home.

On Wednesday, it was the same periods but the special was Mr.Ross taught us a new game so we get to know limerick. I played that game at home also. It was fun.
The next day was Thursday. It was also the same but we read the poem Down The Back Of The Chair. It was funny. We wrote in our notebooks that did it had some devices or not.

On Friday the exciting thing was that Mr. Carbloom was coming to read us a poem. He was the head of the school last year and then it was the same as usual. And it was the end of the week.  



Bear In There by Shel Silverstein

Bear In There by Shel Silverstein
There's a Polar Bear
In our Frigidaire--
He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He's nibbling the noodles,
He's munching the rice,
He's slurping the soda,
He's licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he's in there--
That Polary Bear
In our Fridgitydaire.

Thank you.







The NZ Bush
The forest spoke with secret sound
A whispered hush both still and clear
Communion and peace around
That those more unfamiliar fear
I stood amidst cool and languid air
And heard sweet voices far and near
Low, asking me to join in prayer
The trunks of totara towered forth
With hinau, mangiau, nikau, pines
I turned each way then faced the north
Surrounded by a mass of vines
A morepork joined us in our prayer
With stronger voice but fewer lines
We spoke for all the creatures there
I quite forgot 'bout time and space
No urgency came to my mind
A peaceful member of my race
I prayed for others of my kind
Too busy, most of them to see
With profiteering on their mind
To be at one with forest-tree
