Powerful poetry!

Wow!  Did you hear Aqeel’s poem based on the Battle of the Nile painting?  Ask him to perform it to you sometime.

Can you spot the adventurous vocab, imaginative imagery and striking sound effects?

Crashing ships clashing sailors together.

Boiling fire spitting at ships.

Colossal canons burping bombs at enemies.

Shouting sailors shrieking deathly screams.

Chomping waves munching sailors like the great, white shark.

Try performing it yourself.  Remember to try changing your pitch, pace and volume.  Can you express the drama of the painting in your voice?
