However, if this were written from the lake's point of view, you might write: "I saw the stone in his hand and knew what was coming. I braced myself, but then it hit, skimming and splashing a bit before it finally sank, and I waited in disgust for my calm to recover. Then I saw his arm swing into another pitch. It was going to be a long afternoon."
In this poem, I want you to write about the characters in your story from the point of view of the setting. Choose a character and a setting and then describe how the character feels about and/or acts in the setting. Then reverse their roles and describe the character's actions and words from the point of view of the setting.
