Hello, teachers! Here’s another couplet from my What’s Inside? Poems to Explore the Park project. Most of the poems in this collection, which I’ll be announcing on Friday, are about natural items, but there are some manmade items, too, like this baseball. Stay tuned tomorrow for the answering quatrain:>)
What’s inside of this quick, blurry spin?
This small soaring globe in its white leather skin?
A Note from the Poet:
I wanted a way to describe a baseball without just saying baseball. I think the interesting thing about a baseball is its movement, so I looked for ways to show that. ?quick, blurry spin? and ’small soaring globe? focus on a baseball in action. Because a baseball just sitting there is not all that interesting, in my opinion.
