Poetry for State Studies Unit 2

Rainy Nights
by Irene Thompson

I like the town on rainy nights
When everything is wet –
When all the town has magic lights
And streets of shining jet!


When all the rain about the town
Is like a looking-glass,
And all the lights are upside-down
Below me as I pass.


In all the pools are velvet skies,
And down the dazzling street
A fairy city gleams and lies
In beauty at my feet.

The New Colossus
by Emma Lazarus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin citites frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teaming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

      The schedule, all projects, and all quizzes are done and available. There are just a couple of the journal pages missing in unit two, but everything else is there and usable. We plan to add them when we convert the State Studies units to the MagCloud format. We hope to have them done later this summer but I don’t have an eta yet. In the meantime you can use our blank journal pages and make your own. Here is the link to the blank pages.
