Beach Poetry

head_of_the_meadow2Eun Bi Go, a pre-intermediate student, wrote a poem today in class.  She first read a story about a boy who enjoyed sitting on the beach and playing with the sand.  Eun Bi chose words and phrases from the story that appealed to her and constructed them into a poem:

A Poem

Stones and shells

Look and look as far as . . .

Gaze up at the clouds

Beach nets

Idly throwing sand


– Eun Bi Go

When asked what feelings her poem conveyed, Eun Bi replied, “relaxing, peaceful, and lazy.”

Sometimes studying English can be difficult, frustrating, and boring.  Yet sometimes it can be fun, and even beautiful.
