In the tender poem “She Walks in Beauty”, the author, Lord Byron expresses his love for this lady through his captivating words overflowing with admiration and adoration for this lovely lady. Lord Byron was a cha
My first impression of Byron’s poem was that it had a very sweet and calm tone to it and that it’s is about love which was very pleasant to read about. It makes me feel delighted and fascinated. A line that
Dear Keeba :
I am mesmerised with your writing from your post, “Questions about Baca’s poem,” because i like the topic and how interesting your questions are.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This line makes me question why these things would exist in such a ‘perfect, new world’?” I think this is a very good provocative q…[Read more]
In the 1st line of the first stanza, Byron starts off his poem by repeating his title and then uses figurative language (simile) and says “like the night”. He writes, “She walks in beauty, like the night”
I am Surprised about,on the way you described the poem “She Walks in Beauty,” because to start off for a male to write about women it’s always more of a love affection,not trying to compare their emotions,that no matter that the beauty is inside and out One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “why he uses light and dark to talk about this lady but it does raise another question. How is one able to write about love? ” I think this is a mysterious question because to describe the love he gots its hard to do Another sentence that I got me thinking was: “That comparing this lady to two opposite things just means that there’s beauty in everything and that he thinks that in the same way, there’s beauty in everything about her. This stood out to me because the way that this men not only did he describes the good parts about this lady but also the bad parts that has beauty has this lady is the inside could be beautiful too.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because i got see the your analysing goes deep into the poem like to background information has well.
My name is Anaee and I am 15 years old about to turn 16. I was born in Ecuador but came to the states when I was only few months old. I don’t really know what else to answer because I am not very aware of who
I am amazed by your post, “Heyo!,” because of the fact that I can see myself in your writing.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I do know I like music a lot and I’m very open to listen to all types of music” I think this is relatable because I as well listen to all types of music and I will will listen to just about anything.
Another sentence that I liked was: “something I like doing and that is the trip home. I find it relaxing to look around my surroundings even if i dislike the rush of the city.” This stood out for me because I feel like when you’re on the train, listening to music, time sort of loses its essence and you get lost in your own world and thoughts.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I can sort of see myself reflected in your posts.
Your bio is very well detailed, and heart felt. I think that your statement about not truly knowing one’s self fully was very clever and thoughtful. I also sympathize with your dislike of school subjects as they can be very boring at certain times depending on the content of the class, and the teacher. Your entire bio is very thoughtful and in my opinion all the descriptions are crystal clear. Thanks for sharing.
I am really interested in your bio-essay, “Heyo!” because of how descriptive you wrote it to be! I also really like how you were able to share your experiences and ideas in such a creative way!
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I do know I like music a lot and I’m very open to listen to all types of music.” I think this is a really cool thing to write about because you can share all of your experiences with it, and I also find it super-interesting!
Another sentence that I found really interesting was: “I dislike the rush of the city.” This stood out for me because I am also a New Yorker,, and also really hate the rush and loud-ness of the city ;-;
Your essay reminds me of something that happened to me. I also have similar experiences concerning how I like to spend time alone most of the time I’m also pretty quiet at times. I can relate to your story and I really enjoy how it was written!
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because of how interesting your writing is! Thank you :>
I am moved by your post , “My Immigration Story and Injustice Back in Peru”, because you were very honest about your thoughts and feelings and what you went through before and after you had your big move. I enjoyed reading about how you struggle to memorizing things because I also am the same and I also take notes so I can remember thi…[Read more]
I am so moved by your poem because I also struggle with speaking up for myself and then seeing you here talk about the same makes me feel heartened knowing that others go through the same thing and that they also are looking to improve themselves. There are many times I always get upset with myself for this reason and i’m sure you do…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
