  • Personal Narrative-800-Meter Relay

    You never truly know when the last time for you to do something, until it happens. This is the story of how I lost it all, in a sports sense. It is a story of how all the coaches, my parents and I all finally came together to face a huge obstacle that occurred. It was the Conference Track Meet in Arlington, Nebraska in Mid-April. So, as you can guess it was chilly and a little bit rainy. I had a pretty packed day ahead of me. I suppose, to be the top competitor that year in track. I had placed in all the meets in all of my events and today was going to be no exception. Today, I was suppose to run the 3200 meter relay, the open 800 meter run, the 400 meter dash and finally the 1600 meter relay. Going into the day both relay teams were placed in the top two teams. This season had been going great, we were four seconds away from breaking the school record in the 3200 meter relay and we had a feeling today would be the day. I was placed in the top two in both the 800 and 400 meter runs. My coaches had a good feeling about my runs today. They thought my practices leading up to this were as good as they could be. So, as you can tell my heart was racing since we had arrived at the track. When we settled camp my 3200 relay team decided we were going to go run a couple laps to warm up. I tied on my shoes, imaging the races ahead of me. I imagined crossing the finish line with hopefully personal bests and possibly a new school record. As I got up from the ground, we started jogging…

  • Stress, Rhythm And Metre Analysis

    Poetry Assignment – Critical Analysis Stress, Rhythm and Metre When poems have a detectable stress pattern and rhythm, it forms a metre. An example of this would be a poem with ten syllables on each line, where five of which are stressed, and five are unstressed. This would make the metre pentameter, which often consists of five-stress duplets. Carol Ann Duffy’s Shakespearean sonnet, Rapture, is a good example of a poem with an organised, detectable rhythm, which forms a metre. Most lines appear…

    In Adrienne Su’s “Female Infanticide: a Guide for Mothers” and Anne Sexton’s “Her Kind”, the two poems present a feminist theme to the reader; the works both show that women should be celebrated instead of condemned.
