In T.S. Eliot’s poem The Waste Land, we notice that the poem begins with “April is the cruellest month.” It uses a suffix word –est, in the word cruellest.
“April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.”
Write a poem that begins in a similar way as T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land. Use your choice of month and any superlative adjective that fits.
The following are examples of how you might begin your poem.
- June is the softest month…
- April is the wettest month…
Superlative adjective – used for comparing one person or thing with every other member of their group (e.g. he was the tallest boy in the class).
