This essential message and theme of Owl CIty’s song “Fireflies” is revealed through literary devices such as metaphors, imagery, repetition, and rhyme scheme. It is however very important to recognize the emphasis on the strength these lyrics bare to listeners. Although many people are blind to the message behind the lyrics Owl City portrayals of nostalgia of the past or childhood. Some key lyrics that include metaphor is the chorus of the lyrical masterpiece, “I’d like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly/ It’s hard to say I’d rather stay awake when i'm asleep/ ‘Cause everything is never as it seems/ ‘When I fall asleep.” When it states, “I’d like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly”, it is describing how
The first example is seen when it says, “I would like to watch you sleeping” (Atwood 1-2), and it contrasts the line, “I would like to watch you, / sleeping” (3-4). It is the same set of words, but the insertion of the comma changes the meaning of the sentence. In the first, it means that the speaker simply wishes to watch the other person sleeping, while in the second, the speaker is actually sleeping as they watch the other.

He wanted to engage the reader in the importance of imagination and the lack thereof. It may be believe that Ode to a Nightingale is about the lack of imagination that humans have today. Some people may not be able to envision the nightingale that Keats is talking about throughout the poem, and the imagination is an important factor in being able to envision the bird. This interpretation would make the ending quote of the poem, “Do I wake or do I sleep?” important because people may not understand that Keats may be imagining the nightingale and its existence. Keats uses the nightingale as a symbol throughout the poem to create imagination between mortality and immortality.
In lines thirteen to fifteen, the writer uses imagery to depict a sort of white picket fence life he feels he is too late for because the auditor has moved on. The diction creates the sounds of the poem, which consists of slant rhymes, alliteration. The slant rhyming such as groundling and elephantine, ocean and can, shadow and I pull, wherever and alters, wrings and this, moon and ground symbolizes how the speaker and auditor were close but not a match. The only rhymes in the poem is fabric titanic which emphasizes how his love is love is destined to be sunk and wheels and heels which emphasize how the speaker is being left behind. The alliteration of dirigible devotion emphasizes how he is not the one in control and how devoted he is to the auditor.
The poem “A Late Aubade” written by Richard Wilbur is a seven stanza poem that was published in the year of 1968. In the beginning, Wilbur’s approach to this poem is the speaker daydreaming about what his lover could be doing at this moment, but the lover chooses not to.

Wilbur is able to marvelously identify the theme of choice throughout this poem where the female or the speaker’s lover is constantly asked to decide on what she wants to do.
However, he continues to reflect on other dreams he has experienced where they have been so realistic, he would wake up surprised to find he had actually been asleep. Descartes himself said the more he considered the possibility of reality and dream interconnecting, the more “lost in astonishment” he became.

Others say it was painted by memory by a dream he supposedly had. Vincent tried to calm his anxiety by painting how his mental condition let him see things; big and with movement. "You can feel the stars and the infinity of the sky since life, in spite of everything, is like a dream." That’s the phrase Van Gogh used to describe his magnificent piece of art.

Until his death, he wrote eleven plays and countless works of prose. However, to achieve his dream was uneasy, his father discouraged him pursued writing as a career. Through his poetic works, he told to people about the ways of his people that reflected their suffering and laughter, one of them is Dreams.
