Storyboard Text

  • The poem Crossing the Water By. Sylvia Plath
  • The poem is about something deeper than it let on about. Something dark and dangerous that only the writer knows about.
  • The poem is about crossing paths with something dark and mysterious.
  • Kamisha Yearwood
  • Darkness stands out more than light. Darkness is the key to her happiness if there's any. There's no light in life besides the little sparkles here and there.
  • The little stars above twinkling with lights shows the little hope she have into the darkness. The light that bare only minimum access to see out of the darkness.
  • The dark trees, water, land, shadows, etc is all a way of saying there's nothing but darkness to appeal the eye.
  • Light at first but between stanzas the tone changed darkly as it can get, then back to being going near the end but the poem ended off dark and rough.
  • It went from darkness everywhere. Darkness that you can't see anything besides dark shapes.
  • Then it changed to lightness from the little stars that was shown above in the sky.
  • Then finally it went back to the darkness that was surrounding the shapes. No shapes can be seen even with the stars
  • Overall the poem was dark, humorless, isolated to some point of views, and twisted.
