             A Point of View Poem can explain about an event, experience or person, but since it is told from the point of view of an object, it has an interesting twist.

 

Directions:

Choose an object. Write a poem about life from the point of view of that object. What is this object like? What angers or frustrates this object. What makes this object happy? What are the dreams or goals of this object? The poem could make a commentary about life during the historical period being studied.


 

Sample: 


 

I ride into battle

Assyrians created me

My two wheels are Mesopotamian

My rider is a warrior

With Sword of Iron

I strike fear into all who oppose me

I am a deadly vehicle

Pulled by horses

My driver is brutal and powerful

My aim is true

I will be victorious!
