any ideas what could be on the paper this year? my english teacher thinks it will be a nature poem as one hasn’t come up in a few years!

any suggestions will be helpful, thanks!

i want kamikaze or poppies because they are really easy to compare and they are easier to pick things out of the text with those!

nature is what's predicted so poems like exposure, storm on the island and prelude r what people r saying is gonna come up (i absolutely hate exposure i hope it's soti or prelude).

others r saying identity might come up so checking out me history (john agard also died this year so putting his poem on the exam might be a nice way to commemorate him lol) or the emigree. i doubt tissue would come up since the GCSE is supposed to be accessible for all students and tissue is a grade 9 poem (but i could be wrong since no one expected my last duchess to come up last year)

imo, these are the ones i personally don't think will come up:
my last duchess
bayonet charge
tissue
ozymandias

thank you this is really helpful! i personally would like poppies or kamizake to come up as they are easier to pull things out of and explain the context of!
