1. Based on our lesson today, what do you think a poem should have?
I think a poem should have a deep meaning and a moral lesson because it is the reason why the story is being told in the first place.
2. What should a poem not have?
A poem should not be told like you are talking to a person.
3. What did you notice that was different about the Bradstreet poem versus the Williams poems?
The Williams poem was not a poem and the Bradstreet poem was. I know this because the Williams poem was exactly what I said a poem should not be and Bradstreet poem was exactly what I said a poem should be.
4. What similarities did you see in these poems?
A similarity I see in The Red Wheelbarrow and To My Dear and Loving Husband is that they both are describing something. Williams is describing a red wheel barrow and Bradstreet is describing her love for her husband.
