Georg & Martina


Lisa & Andrej


– the idea of the world as an object floating above a field (ll. 1- 5)

– the geography of the earth (ll. 5- 8)

– the atmosphere and climate ( ll. 8-9)

– the animals on the surface and in the water (ll. 9-11)

– the reaction of the people to the aerth (ll. 11 – 20)


It is a poem, as it has strong imagery; it is divided into lines; it makes use of repetition (opening and closing lines, “people would..”; ll. 5, 7, 9, 11), enumeration (to pray…, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and to wonder, ll. 14 – 16).

It is not a poem, as it has no real rhymes; it consists simply of prose sentences divided randomly into lines in a shape.



p. 76 / 2, p. 77 / 6 a + b, 7; read red hints!, p. 78/1+2, check “useful words & phrases” + red hints. Take a look at p. 277 (shape poems)
