It’s looks good in the morning time I love looking at the sun ,
the moon for long...
Diction refers to the choice of words. Poet chose words that mean freedom like fresh air and barefoot.
I think it is cool that there is no end stop in the poem. No punctuation.It is like a free flow and keeps going and going and going.
Mood- the mood the author sets is happy. It makes me happy to think about music.
I agree with you Tori. It sounds like Austin is beautiful and calm. It is a place I want to visit.
Does the author love his city? I like my city because I have a basketball hoop and park right around the corner, actually two parks, one big and one small.
I go often to climb a hill in Fordham. It is hard to climb up but I like to get the top to see the view of stores and people hanging out.
What transformation is Tish talking about? I think she is talking about going from being Tish to being a mom.
A liar never admits to lying. Why they do this is because they do not want people to know they a liar.
I agree that Sharon was comforting Tish. My aunt tells me I have to do my work to pass my classes because I know she cares about me. I need to do work and not talk about it.
I agree. Tish is saying she has to like Daniel because she knows how much Fonny likes him even though he was from Fonny past. She said swampy so his past must not be good to her.
I think they are talking about Mrs. Rogers. She is the woman who said Fonny raped her. She lying.
This makes me sad for them. They are just trying to live their lives and it seems like the cop and lady are against them and he didn't even do nothing.
Tish's dad seems very protective. It is good he asks her opinion. I don't like when some adults take too much control and don't listen
I wonder what Fonny and Tish are doing at her parents house. I think they may be going to ask for money.
