Two Day Woner

Two Day Wonder

There is a clever contrast between the way the poet describes yesterday and today.  List all the words that give you a feeling of being sick, sad, depressed or bored. Silent,drooped,dragged,sulked,yawned and grumbled

Now list all the words that describe feeling well, happy, bright and active from the second verse.  Better,Swish,Clatter,Hurry,Flying,Gallops,Shine and Dances
he lines from each verse matchup also.  List five of the opposite images.  This first one is done for you.
The street stretched silent, footpaths still - Cars swish, skateboards clatter.
  1. Washing dropped on the line - Shirts, sheets, socks stream in the breeze .
  2. My bike lay on the drive - My bike waits by the garage .
  3. Clouds dragged, low and slow. - Clouds hurry, high and flying
  4. The dog sulked in his basket - The dog gallops round the house.
  5. The world yawned and grumbled -The world shine and dances.

This is called juxtaposition.  Look this word up in the dictionary and copy the definition here
the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.
"the juxtaposition of these two images"
Today for reading we read a poem and answered questions involving the poem. I found this a little bit difficult because I was confused at the start but continued on and improved my answers. Next time when I do something similar to this I need to read the poem more then once slowly and carefully.


  1. That's great learning today. I often read a poem more than once and notice something different each time.

    1. Thank you Ms Kirk Patrick, I also noticed something different at the end when I was sharing my work to others. Next time I'll Make sure to read the text more then once.
