I am so confuse with this can you help me please?
I chose I knew a Woman. How would you chance the information down different below

I knew a woman, lovely in her bones, that look different inside and out
When small birds sighed, she would sigh back at them;
Ah, when she moved, she moved more ways than one:
The shapes a bright container can contain!
Of her choice virtues only gods should speak,
Or English poets who grew up on Greek
(I'd have them sing in chorus, cheek to cheek.)
How well her wishes went! She stroked my chin,
She taught me Turn, and Counter-turn, and stand;
She taught me Touch, that undulant white skin:
I nibbled meekly from her proffered hand;
She was the sickle; I, poor I, the rake,

Use the same form (line length, stanza breaks, and indentations) but change the poem's content to reflect your wise mentor. Also, use the same point of view as your chosen model poem.

While writing and revising, seek the most precise word choices possible to convey your imagined wise old man, woman, or creature. Remember to use concrete images wherever possible. Be sure to note which poem you use as your model poem.

    Anonymous, you need to understand that no one here will do your work for you. YOU are signed up for this creative writing class, and the very word "creative" means that the ideas and words need to come from YOUR MIND, not anyone else's.

    One thing you can do is change the word "woman" to something else, and then change all the other lines to match. Here are some nouns to substitute:

    father
    grandmother
    professor
    little girl
    teenage boy
    etc., etc.
