    John Masefield does a great job showing how repetition can encompass the concept of voice in this poem. Students will be able to understand the tone and emotions behind the text through the repetition used within the poem. As students read and reread the poem: they will be underlining or highlighting words that are descriptive, imagery, strong verbs, personal feelings, and anything relating to that. We will look over those highlighted words together as a class. Using Spandel's strategy of: take the voice OUT, students have already identified those words. Now, they will rewrite the poem without all of that voice. They will see how the emotion and tone is lost,and the poem doesn't hold any meaning anymore. Writing: they will practice this idea of adding in detail by writing their own poems. Each student will write a poem about anything they want to. Whatever memory, or fun moment, or even about a flower they want to. Then the students will pick out all the voice in their poem. If they cannot find any, that means they need to add their voice to the poem. This will give them a chance to revise and add that so desired voice to their poems.

    While I'm not a fan of all of Masefield's poetry, I do enjoy some of his poetry enormously. I particularly like his poetry about sailing and the sea, although some of the poems are rather dark. Among my favorite poems in this book are "Sea-Fever," "Adventure On," "Trade Winds," and "The West Wind."
