MONTHLY METAPHOR

Carl Sandburg wrote “Fog”
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
and then moves on…

Carl’s metaphor is of the fog, we’ll use the months of the year.

EXAMPLES:
May September
May tiptoes in September trots in quietly
Quietly, shyly. its head held high
She strews flowers prancing after fluttering butterflies
As she twirls and dances lightly bucking playfully in a dew covered meadow
Over the soft grass into June as it proudly canter into the sunset of October

July Football Time
July creeps in September runs in
Hot and ready to explode. with a helmet and pads.
It ignites and slowly begins to burn. Clapping its hands,
It sizzles and is ready to go off, stomping its cleats on the ground
And then pops and crackles into August. and then tackles October mercilessly.

Directions:
1. Choose a month and try to picture the way it would arrive if it were a PERSON or ANIMAL (personification).
Use some of the motion words – you’re not limited to the list.
2. Tell how or where the month arrives. Use adverbs and prepositional phrases.
3. Tell something else the month does while it’s here.
4. Tell how the month leaves into the next.
5. Use the same mental image or comparison throughout the poem, don’t change the mood.

MOTION WORDS
March scamper skip prance fight tiptoe float gallop hop limp canter hobble...
