Two Voice poem
posted by Gabby on .
Ok so I have to write a two voice poem on Christopher Columbus finding America, ok so I'm supposed to write how the Europeans felt when they found America and how the Taino (the Indians that were originally there)felt about what happened, and I'm kind of stuck. Now I know the history behind both, I know that the Europeans were very pleased to find America and how the Taino were very un-happy probably stressed because most were made to be slave or to leave and have Christianity forced on them. But I don't know now how to put it all in a two voice poem and make it sound right, mainly because I need to involve things like sensory imagery. Now, I'm not asking for you to make a poem for me, but maybe point me on what I should do cause I'm.............. well, lost so..
I have found many islands and people,
And have taken possession of all that were found,
As well as enter all harbors,
And placed a large cross in the ground,
Making sure the cross was put in appropriately,
And Your Highnesses banner was unfurled,
The people did not argue, nor falter
Chief Red Jacket:
The White people have found our country,
And have taken it,
They forced their own religion,
We did not fear them at first.
We thought they were friends…
Now this just show's kinda where I am lol.
That's very good!
Rlly?? Well thx.. but is there anything I could add to well... make it better..
I'm a terrible poet! But you might mention disease brought by the Europeans and slavery from the native's voice.
You might also mention Columbus's search for gold and the free labor available.
Alright I'll see Where I could include that thx! ^.^
