  • My first impressions of “A Call,” by Seamus Heaney was that it had a very unusual form compare to most poems I had read.  It intrigued me, yet, at the same time, had a calming effect over me as well. A line

    • wow kalina i like this poem very much because it makes me laugh, but it also sounds like it can be related or connected to different things. And i like you draw readers in with the photo and the title, so BE HAPPY it is a very good poem.

    • Hi Kalina,
      I really like your poem and how you described the fries. I like how you used the fries as if they had feelings, for example by saying that they ‘hide’ and are ‘waiting’. This adds an extra touch of excitement to your peom. I also liked how you described the tongues as being hungry. Really great job!
