English 9 poetry project



He throws together,
Two all beef patties, special sauce,
Lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions,
On a sesame seed bun.

The bun as soft as feathers,
Topped this burger like
A cherry on a sundae.
The sweet smell of
Special sauces filled the kitchen.

Placed in a box, And set aside.
Tossed in a bag, and handed out the window,
I’m given to a customer in the drive through


The Road not Taken

Life decisions always lead you to more choices you will have to make and you wont be able to go back to change your decisions. The Road not Taken by Robert Frost is a symbolic poem where the two paths the man comes across symbolize life’s decisions of which he will always come across in life.” And looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth;” this quote explains how he was thinking about all the possibilities that will come with this decision and where it will take him in life. Thinking of every possibility about the possibilities of his actions or in this case the path he shall take. “I doubted if I should ever come back.” This quote gives insight about how once you’ve made a decision you have to live with it and make new decisions, because once you’ve made a decision you cant go back and change the decision you’ve made you have to live with it and continue making more choices and decisions. “then took the other, as just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim” the decision he made perhaps had the better outcome than the other decision, after thinking the repercussions of what might happen after which path he would have to take he chose the one that could very well lead him to a better place after making perhaps the better decision. This poem is a closed poem because it is very organized and each stanza has the same rhythm. “Because it was grassy and wanted wear” is personification because grass doesn’t want wear, the poet gave the grass human qualities to bring the poem together.
