9. Rewrite the first stanza of “Scott’s Goodbye” as free verse. (5 points)
Please keep in mind that no one here will do your assignments for you. However, if you give it a try, we'll be happy to check your work for you.
i don't know how to rewrite it
First, make sure you are clear on what free verse is:
Then find the poem/song and isolate the first stanza.
Rewrite it in your own words and re-post. Then we can work on the "free verse" aspect.
this is the first saanzer of Scott Goodbye
we saw the months of wicked weather,
As day to painful night did turn,
Waiting, huddled close together
For the frozen sun’s return.
this is how i put it in my own words
Each month passed us by
we were in endless winter
every day was cold as ever
and night so harsh an cruel
we wait for the return of the
glorious wonder,the sun
Nice! Very nice!!
Two little corrections:
...harsh and cruel ...
...wonder, the sun
[space after the comma]
so is this a free verse
You did well!!
