Poetry Packet – 9 th grade Poetry – a highly charged form of literature in which every word is packed with meaning. It has a musical quality that may be achieved through meter, rhyme, repetition, and sound devices. The following poems will be quized on ________________________. You are responsible for completing the packet and studying the poetry. You will NOT be able to use the packet on the quiz, so it would be smart to create a 3x5 card for each poem that summarizes and list key themes. Then, study your flash cards, and USE them on the quiz . We will not go through the poems and give you the answers. Use must INFER, use the internet as a source, and/or discuss the poems with classmates. You may use your own personal notes (3x5 cards) on the quiz ! One 3x5 card per poem may be used. Poem 1: “Incident in a Rose Garden” Note: Read this poem out- loud like a play! There are three characters: The master of the land, the gardener, and Death. Gardener Sir , I encountered Death  Just now among our roses. Thin as a scythe he stood there. I knew him by his pictures. He had his black coat on, Black gloves, a broad black hat. I think he would have spoken, Seeing his mouth stood open. Big it was, with  white teeth . As soon as he beckoned, I ran. I ran until I found you. Sir, I am quitting my job. I want to see my sons Once more before I die. I want to see California.
