  1. Composed in Mrs.Mayers Classroom by Alex Zibuls
    Earth has not anything to show more foul:
    Love would out of soul who could pass by
    A sight so disturbing in its majesty;
    This land is now destroyed, like in a doomsday
    The coldness of the morning; silent, dark,
    Ships, factories, old buildings lie
    Open unto the dirty ground, and to the polluted sky;
    All gray and windy in the smoke full air.

    Never did sun shine dimmer
    In his first drabness, valley, rock, or hill;
    Ne’er saw I, never felt, a disappointment so deep!
    The river glideth at people’s own control:
    Dear God! The very houses seem afraid;
    And all that fallout land is lying still!

  2. Composed in Ms. Mayer’s classroom by Marie Gaior
    Earth has not anything to show more foul:
    Love would he be of soul who could pass by
    A sight so revolting in its majesty:
    This City now doth, like a garment, wear
    The ugliness of the evening; noisy, full of people,
    Factories, constructions, oil-tanker industries, trucks, and power stations lie
    Open unto the dust, and to the pollution;
    All bright and glittering in the smoky air.

    Never did sun more beautifully closeted
    In his last splendour, disgusting, grey or uncolored things ;
    Always saw I, always felt, an agitation so deep!
    The chemical substance river glideth at his own sweet will:
    Dear God! the very houses look like factories;
    And all that mighty heart is lying still!

  3. Composed In Ms. Mayer’s Classroom by Giuliana Carvalho
    Earth has not anything to show more foul:
    Love would he be of soul who could pass by
    A sight so revolting in its majesty;
    This City now devastated, like a ruptured building, falling
    The ugliness of the evening; noisy, crowded,
    High taxes, traffic, crime, sprawl, and misery all subsist
    Open unto the pollution, and to the rain;
    All gloomy and dulling in the smokeless air.

    Never did sun more deadly steep
    In his first drabness, skyscraper, factories, or office blocks;
    Ne’er saw I, never felt, a dejection so deep!
    The river dying at his own desecrate will:
    Dear God! the very houses seem lifeless ;
    And all that mighty heart is lamented

  4. Composed Upon Westminster Bridge by William Wordsworth
    Earth has not anything to show more foul:
    Love would he be of soul who could pass by
    A sight so revolting in its majesty;
    This City now dirty, smoke of car engines, cover the earth
    The ugliness of the night; loud, crowded,
    Cars, buses, the dirty of subways, factory, and skyscrapers
    Open unto the road, and to the smoke storm;
    All dark and fading in the polluted air.

    Never did sun more ugly steep
    In his first disrepute, crimes, traffic jam, or accident;
    Ne’er saw I, never felt, an angry so deep!
    The river polluted because of what human did:
    Dear God! the very houses seem nasty;
    And all that mighty heart is regretted still!

  5. Composed In Ms. Mayer’s Classroom by Intan Amalia

    Earth has not anything to show more foul:
    Love would he be of soul who could pass by
    A sight so revolting in its majesty;
    This City now dirty, smoke of car engines, cover the earth
    The ugliness of the night; loud, crowded,
    Cars, buses, the dirty of subways, factory, and skyscrapers
    Open unto the road, and to the smoke storm;
    All dark and fading in the polluted air.

    Never did sun more ugly steep
    In his first disrepute, crimes, traffic jam, or accident;
    Ne’er saw I, never felt, an angry so deep!
    The river polluted because of what human did:
    Dear God! the very houses seem nasty;
    And all that mighty heart is regretted still!

  6. UNBELIEVABLE! UNBELIEVABLE! UNBELIEVABLE! I’m in awe, amazed and astounded at the beauty of your work, your tremendous love for English and your dedication to your profession and your students.
