Analyzing a poem By - Janvi ishwar

Upon a beach

Upon a beach

The author of this poem is unknown. So to break the poem down so we can understand it's meaning when it says "upon a beach," they are saying at the beach. Next it says " three small shells lay," which means there are three shells. After it says " and saw the water come out to play," which means the tides are high. Then it says " Went back to the sea, and took those shells," which means after they went back there they took those shells. Finally it says " One, Two, Three," which means they took all three of the shells. An example of figurative language in the poem was when it said " and saw the water come out and play," which is an example of personification because it is giving a non-human a human-like quality.

Three small shells lay,

And saw the water

Come out to play

But, all the waves

Went back to sea,

And took those shells,

One, two, three
