Please provide your feedback on the author’s techniques in ONE of these poems.

Be sure to have read the Unit 1 lessons before completing your post. Original post should be at least 250 words in length.
For your peer review, choose one student’s post and respond thoughtfully. Peer response should be at least 100 words in length.
