Sample Poetry Work: My Papa’s Waltz

To help with your work in creating a poetry analysis, we’ve put together some examples of what your work might look like with Theodore Roethke’s My Papa’s Waltz, a poem that you can also find in your poetry packet. PLEASE NOTE: This work skips the “Paraphrase” section of TPCASTT – if your teacher requests a paraphrase as well, it is preferable to add that at the bottom or on a different page. Don’t overlook the link to the sample essay on My Papa’s Waltz at the bottom of this page.
