One of the most interesting lines in Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “The Raven” is in stanza 15, line 1. the speaker is freaking out and is talking about how the raven is a devil. What came before this was that the ra

I’m assuming that this is about soccer or some sport. If it is then I really like how you didn’t straight up say it but instead made hints to it such as ball, pass, and shoot.
One line that stands out for me is You miss and hate will come. This line is intriguing because of how it’s talking about something that should be enjoyable yet when you describe it, it seems like if you aren’t good at what you do you will be an outsider who nobody cares for.
I am Interested by your poem, “Pelham Bay Park,” because I used to live around that area and took the same trains as you so it’s kind of cool to go to the same school as that person.
One line that stands out for me is, “All you had to do was shoot” I think this line is striking because you seem like you are talking about basketball and soccer but then it seems like a deeper meaning if you think about it on a deeper level.
Another line that stands out for me is, “Chasing you again, you run” I think this line is interesting because You seem like you are running from something deeper than just an opponent.
Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. because you you are a good detailed writer and know how to get a reader attracted to your writing
I am interested by your poem “ Pelham Bay Park” because I live very near to Pelham Bay park and I like the way you are describing life there.
One part of your poem that stand out for me is where “Hurry before they catch up”, this line surprises me because I think that you are saying something about sports but then this line could have another meaning like running from someone for something that you did.
Another part that i found interesting is where “ Chasing you for what you are” . This stood out for me because what i got from that line is that people can be jealous and will hate you for what you are.
My first impressions of this poem were of “The Raven” was confused. It makes me feel surprised, yet, at the same time, perplexed. A line that especially evokes the first feeling for me is, ““Though thy crest be

I am curious by your analysis on the poem you chose , “ The Raven,” because your analysis on it made me question, is the man really sane? Your analysis on the poem helped me see that there are different point of views to it.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I say this because He is alone and is trying to prove to himself that he is sane when he calls the raven the devil. ” I think this is shocking because I never thought of this poem in this form. I always thought that the Raven and other things occurring in his home are in his imagination.
Another sentence that I was curious about was: “ If this poem were a question, the answer would be “that the Raven is the reaper that is going after this man.” If it were an answer, question would be “What is the Ravens purpose?”.” This stood out for me because it also made wonder if the Raven is a reaper. It made me wonder if the raven is really real or if it’s just in the speakers imagination.
Your analysis really helped out for when I was writing my own analysis.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.
I am amazed by your place, “Largest Park in New York City,” because it seems calming. I like the last picture the most. It looks so cool.
One line that stands out for me is, “It’s where we chill and relax after a long day.” I think this line is relatable because I like to relax. I would only relax there if it’s not too hot and not too cold.
Another line that stands out for me is, “It’s the place the main place where you want to have fun.” I think this line is also relatable because I also like to have fun.
Your place reminds me of a when I went to there for track and field at my old school’s camp. Everyday on my way to school, I pass Pelham Parkway because its only a few stops away from mine.
Thanks for your place. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I think it will be just as good as this one or maybe better. Great job!

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.
