This lesson includes content and language objectives, the poem, a handout, and an answer key. The poem (a translation from the original in Spanish) offers good examples of figurative language (simile, metaphor, personification and hyperbole) and imagery (sight and touch). It is also effective example of enjambment, which allows students to explore the structure of the poem. The lesson includes suggestions for differentiation and assessment.
