Thesis: In the poems “ Down Home” by Lucy Maud Montgomery and “ Home for Thanksgiving” by Linda Pastan, both authors use imagery to help the reader picture their home and family. “ Down Home” by Lucy Maud Montgomery is about a person visiting their childhood home. In this poem the speaker uses imagery to explain how everything looks and feels in this home. For example, in the first four lines of the poem “ Down Home to-night the moonshine falls across a hill with daisies pied, the pear tree by the garden gate beckons with white arms like a bride”. This quote is important to the theme because it emphasizes how the home looks and feels to the speaker. This example uses imagery by emphasizing what the yard of the house looks like when at night.
