Requirements: Write a response to the student post, the post is… Requirements: Write a response to the student post, the post is talking about a poem.Make sure that the response is in paragraph format. Make sure that the response has a connection to the student poem.  Reference: The poem that the student talking about is :  “Metaphors” by Sylvia Plath I’m a riddle in nine syllables,An elephant, a ponderous house,A melon strolling on two tendrils.O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!This loaf’s big with its yeasty rising.Money’s new-minted in this fat purse.I’m a means, a stage, a cow in calf.I’ve eaten a bag of green apples,Boarded the train there’s no getting off.    The student’s post: “Metaphors” is a poem about being pregnant, and is written, obviously, in metaphors. I didn’t realize which Plath poem it was until I saw it, then remembered it as “the green apple poem” that I read ten years ago when I was in high school, although I resonate with the poem a  lot more now. (More on that later.) The poem starts out with the line “I’m a riddle in nine syllables”  (which, it’s obvious that the nine represents the nine months of pregnancy) as well as the comparisons to Plath feeling like the imagery that uses in her poem; a melon, “a ponderous house,” an elephant, a cow. The last line “I’ve boarded the train there’s no getting off,” represents that feeling when you’re pregnant when you realize that there’s no turning back, that you’ve made the decision to become a mother and that you have to stick with it. It’s a poem that shows Plath’s feelings about being pregnant, and not sugarcoating the way that she felt. I remember reading about Plath’s life a long time ago, and reading about how she died. And I remember reading that before she died, she fed her kids their breakfast. And I feel like that shows that she was still a loving, caring mother, I don’t know, that always has stuck with me. Even though she was going to kill herself, she made sure that her kids ate first. Crazy stuff. I connect with the poem because I’m a mother. I was pregnant a long ways away from here, away from my friends, my family and my home. I often felt super uncomfortable, and as big as a house, or in the words of the pregnant woman Juno from the movie of the same name, “a planet.” I feel Plath’s pain, as has many women of all cultures and races. I have felt my body change (and stay changed.) My question is, if you’ve ever been pregnant, how do you resonate with the poem? And if you haven’t, was there ever a time in your life where your body changed drastically and you felt upset about it?  Arts & Humanities English English Literature ENG 1A
