I Stepped From Plank To Plank

Rating: 3.9
I stepped from plank to plank
So slow and cautiously;
The stars about my head I felt,
About my feet the sea.

I knew not but the next
Would be my final inch,--
This gave me that precarious gait
Some call experience.

For teachers who would like to teach this poem, it is important that you ask abut the speaker, making inferences of his/her personality, dispositions and inclinations. The speaker here is a person who adores challenges, brave enough to risk although he/she has no clue what is behind the corner. This speaker looks like the mother in 'Mother to Son' By langston Hughes. Both introduce a fearless person who doesn't hesitate to explore the hidden and learn a valuable lesson to use in the future. The speaker is also optimistic as he/she shows a positive outlook to life and its barriers.
