In both Just Us Forever and Dear You, the author uses the idea of rain and early elements as a representation of love; where Just Us Forever poems starts with the desire to “fall in love like drops of rain”, Dear You expresses that “every ocean reflect the shades seasoning from your eyes and during night I can see everything you have ever wanted me to see”. In Just Us Forever he embodies love to be rain drops; however rain is usually symbolised as sadness and despair, Drake signifies it to be condense and pure. Within Dear You, Robert establishes an association between his delivery of love with earthly components such as the ocean. From this example, the author uses the ocean to represent his beloved’s eyes and expresses the connection of beauty between his beloved’s eyes and the moon’s reflection on the ocean at night. These two poems share a similarity of their connection of love with natural elements whereas Drake’s Burned Alive conveys love to be a source of pain.
More so the love extends from the individual life to the coexistence of all the people in the society (or globe). Girmay successfully convinces the audience that a universal love exists between the empty, silent spaces in her poem. Love is the “you better than me, you kinder and so blistering with anger, you are who I love.” If the rain is the tears of angels, I suppose the reason is joy. Love is virtuous, abundant, and passionate. As the reader, I look down into the poem as she begins to list the recipients of love.
In “419,” Dickinson’s darkness is a metaphor for the unknown. Her use of dashes throughout each stanza disrupts their smooth flow and characterizes her narrator, showing the character’s hesitancy when abandoned in the darkness. As the character progresses through the darkness, however, the reader identifies a hopeful and perseverant tone. By expressing that “We uncertain step / For newness of the night,” the narrator shares the feeling of alarming change that is expected to become easier given time.
The last example of dramatic irony includes Titania, the fairy queen, and Bottom, an Athenian. Oberon, the fairy king, puts the flower juice into Titania’s eyes to make her fall in love with someone hideous. The flower juice makes you fall in love with the first person you see, and the first thing Titania saw was Bottom. Now, Bottom was not his normal self, his head was a donkey head. Titania instantly falls in love with Bottom and treats him as royalty.
Her speaker becomes candid, doing away with her colorful sketches and tracings to express a critical difference between herself and her sleeping lover in the lines that read “She has always been more orchard than loved,/I, more bite than mouth” (Diaz 26-27). Where the sleeping lover remains tied to fruit and tranquility, the speaker exposes her intrinsic values as stemming from the violence of a bite. She is detrimental by nature, using her mouth not to kiss her lover or perform other sexual acts, but to bite, to tear with her teeth and consume. The erotic would show itself as a balance or construction in which each component builds on the other, but here, half of the whole exists as a devourer of the orchard it keeps
“Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow” (Editors) Romeo and Juliet, who loved but did not heed their elder’s warnings and paid the highest price for it. “For Summer is the season when, if you but know the way, A maid that is kissed will kiss again,” (PoemHunter) Alfred Austin’s “If You Were Mine If You Were Mine”, shows that driving passion of love cannot even be separated by death.” Love lost is a topic covered by many British authors, weather by death, fights, or money, it is still heart wrenching, and life
Love was good. I loved your crooked sleep beside me and never dreamed afraid. There should be stars for great wars like ours. Diaz uses this poem as an epigraph to show an insight of how the book will go. In relationships, people tend to go through experiences that challenges the bond of two people such as arguments, disagreements, or even cheating.
It almost seemed constrictive, binding his arms at his side. “Oh, sweetheart,” she said, kissing his forehead. “When you meet your special one, you will. Everything will change,” she stated reassuringly, before leaving the room and clicking off the lights so he could sleep. He wondered, faintly, if others experienced color differently from others.
In this scene the hankie symbolizes the couples love and commitment, and that this devotion may soon be lost. And, when it blows in through the window and comes in to Cassio's possession, he places it on his dear Bianca’s pillow while she sleeps, unknowing that soon
In William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth, the symbol of sleep undergoes changes as a result of a few plot events that truly shape the play. The symbol transitions from representing vulnerability to peace, and finally to consolation. During the first couple acts of the play, sleep symbolizing vulnerability relates well to the plot, as people are being taken advantage of in their sleep. In act one of Macbeth, everyone in Scotland is happy and carefree, except
Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride”. Poe said he spends his nights curled up next to Annabel 's dead body. The point of this text is very clear. Poe wrote this poem about his love, Annabel Lee, expressing his love for her and saying that neither the angels in heaven nor the demons who live under the water can stop them from loving each other. There is nothing in heaven or hell that can divide his and her soul.
1. The poem I’ve chosen is from Mary Elizabeth Frye, and I chose it because it has a very special place in my heart. I find it very comforting and solacing during times of grief and sorrow. The poem has many different lines that illustrates the simplest beauties of nature and its seasons. For instance, line 6 says, “I am the gentle autumn rain.” The way it captures these images draws comfort into my mind and soul.
