We Read This Poem Today; What Do You Think About It?

Today we read the above poem in class, and I decided I wanted to write a poem like the one on the left. I also wanted to get your opinion on the poem.

What struck me was the personification made it sound like a crow, or maybe a raven. To me, envisioning a thunderstorm as a bird of prey, with big velvety wings that-to a young child-could potentially crush an entire garden. Maybe just the way crows and ravens are portrayed in movies and books made m think this, but I like the poem a lot.

Now I want to hear your opinion. Send me a video of your reaction and comments to this poem, and you could be featured in my newest YouTube video!
