Summer Task Poem


I remember how the summer sun reflected in your eyes,

Mirrored the sparkling lake, and made me smile.

I remember the silence, everything stopped,

We were the only people in the world.

I remember the wind rustling through the leaves,

On the silver birch and pine trees.

I remember sitting under their green canopy,

Savouring every moment together.

I remember walking hand in hand with you,

Around the lake as ducks swam by.

I remember you holding me when I was cold,

As the sun danced behind the clouds

I remember boarding the train without you,

One last cuddle goodbye before the long trip home.

I remember everything,

Memories keep us together even when we are apart.


Inspiration for my Summer Task Poem

While I was writing my summer task poem, looking at all the photographs that held so many memories of my summer, I was listening to the soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. It is an instrumental cd so it made it easier for me to focus on writing the poem with the music in the background. The track that mostly helped me in writing my poem was track 1 Lilly’s theme, this music is entwined within many of the tracks on the cd, especially Snape’s Demise track 16 and Severus and Lilly track 17. Listening to the cd really helped me create my poem about memories and love.

William Henry Davies-Leisure

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

This is my favourite poem. I was inspired by it in my first term to create a series of images showing how humans are destroying the natural environment. I thought it fit quite well. I once again love the images the poem can conjour up in your mind. It is beautiful. My work is inspired by poetry because I like to have a meaning in all of my images, sometimes hidden but with a little digging you can find it. I also like people to make up their own minds as to the meaning of my images, I do not like to steer them in one direction.

William Wordsworth Daffodils

    I Wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the milky way,
    They stretched in never-ending line
    Along the margin of the bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company
    I gazed — and gazed — but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:
    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.
    This poem inspires me especially when i go to the lake district on holiday. I love the description and how it celebrates nature. The poem forces you to relax as you read it, and you are carried to a place you love, which could be anywhere. I took some photographs in the Lake district inspired by this poem for my second term assignment.
