Teasdale talks about a feathery fire, and how no one will notice the deaths and losses once the war is over (Bradbury/Teasdale). The story follows a similar plot, having the people disappear due to various attacks, remembered solely by the house, but then completely forgotten when the house catches on fire and turns into dust. The poem matches what will happen next in the story, creating a comparison between Teasdale and Bradbury’s storyline. “The irony exists in the way in which Bradbury’s fictional world in “There Will Come Soft Rains” parallels the imaginative world of Teasdale’s poem” (Haisty).
