In the “By chance or nature's changing course untrimmed./But thy eternal summer shall not fade,/Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;/Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,/When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st” (Line 8-12), the speaker uses personification that letting “[d]eath” as a person who cannot easily bring the speaker’s beloved into another world.

However, the reason that the speaker feels a little bit sad is he cannot find the precise item to describe his beloved, which indicates that the speaker is very strict with himself and the way he loves his
To me, this poem was quite relatable in the sense that there can be so much commotion above the water, but once you sink down, all is at peace. When surfing the is struggle with, paddling out often fighting the waves, that is if there isn 't a rip to pull you in. Once you ride your wave, you fall back under the water where nothing is fighting or pulling you away.

When worrying so much about the outside people often find themselves in chaos or the feeling of being overwhelmed.

William Shakespeare writes Sonnet 116 about what true love is between “...the marriage of true minds” (line 1). Shakespeare’s use of metaphors and navigational terms throughout Sonnet 116 to describe how true love does not change, how true love lasts, and how love changes a person to, in a sense, present a map of love and how to beat it. Shakespeare begins Sonnet 116 with, “Love is not love / Which alters when it alteration finds” (Shakespeare lines 2-3). Here Shakespeare writes that love cannot be true if, when a problem arises, the love is lost. Not only a problem, but also physical characteristics.

Poems are short meaningful pieces of literature that can be interpreted in multiple ways depending upon the reader at hand. That is what makes a poem unique compared to other literature pieces because in a poem the author tends to use figurative language to fulfill meaning behind their work.

As to another poem “American Solitude” by Grace Schulman describes a life of solitude being most warming to the soul to ward off loneliness.

The ellipsis in this quote suggests the omission of feelings which are too raw to be interpreted into words. This shows a deep felt maternal love for in which humanity redeems itself from other sins, also the quote shows the perseverant nature of humanity and its ability to survive and continue even within such a situation, such a world, which is so corrupted and
It is natural to want the best in life, to live in bliss and to never experience pain or suffering. Still, no matter how tempting that life would be, can one really call it living never to experience pain or sorrow along with joy and bliss? When the time of the ending of our life’s story comes, it is common to reflect on our past and to take in all of the good and bad that we have encountered.

While their pasts were not perfect, the poem captures the harmony of the events that took place throughout their lives and the peace they are left with as a result.
