Lasting Legacies Since the beginning of time, fathers have been one of the key figures in a boy 's life. In the poems, “Those Winter Sundays” by Theodore Roethke, “My Papa’s Waltz” by Robert Hayden, and "Digging" by Seamus Heaney, the love between a father and his son are shown in a variety of ways. These three wonderful poems inspire people, especially fathers and sons, to have deep relationships with one another. The words written by Roethke, Hayden, and Heaney show that it is difficult to keep a relationship strong between a father and his son, because even the smallest mistake can destroy it. Each of these poems demonstrate, in their own way, the complicated and strong love between a father and his son.
Another reoccurring theme in the poem is love. The reader can see from the very beginning that this poem is about someone the speaker loved very much. It’s clear that all the man wants is his dear Lenora back, although that is impossible. Knowing this, the reader can infer that Poe struggled with love in his own life, so much so that he took to writing about it. Although he never comes out directly and says that this is a poem about love, the reader can recognize the deeper meaning of his writings.
In Creation the Word said, “Let there be Light.” And the Spirit “moved upon the waters.” And creation was accomplished. But then the great disobedience supervened and we needed to be redeemed. In redemption the Holy Spirit provides the gift of repentance and the Word provides atonement.
The poem is written about a woman’s love relationship towards with a man. The poem consists of words that have symbolic meaning which depicts how the relationship is. The relationship is depicted as a very loving and caring relationship while the disadvantages of the relationship are discussed as well. In essence, the poem implies that the advantages in a true love experience overpower the challenges in a true love experience. The first stanza starts off gently to the likelihood of what seems to be great.
The poem "Kindness" by Naomi Shihab Nye speaks about how you experience kindness and what it really is. The main point in this poem is that in order to experience people's kindness you need to experience hurt, sorrow, and loneliness. The author says that when you loose everything and have no one or thing that when kindness comes along it lifts you up "and then goes with you everywhere/ like a shadow or a friend" (33-34). When portraying this message the author uses a sad but hopeful tone to send the message she wants to say. This tone helps portray the message because you can feel how sad someone is when they are lonely and they have nothing.
While Marius was given Epinine as a sort of gift from the Thenardies, that is still better than meeting someone in a garden and falling in love with them. All without knowing their name. In the movie Epinine is portrayed as a close friend of Marius instead of simply being a new face they meet. Along with this she actually knew Marius’ name. Perhaps the biggest thing to look for in your significant other is that they can take care of themselves.
Throughout the peom,the speaker keeps pointing out that everyone’s existence is temporary and nobody is going to stay on earth permanently .But his love for the friend/lover makes him question the laws of nature and by the end of the poem, he figures out a way of keeping his lover/friend alive through his poems. He has presented the idea of war and love(Paradox) and how they are somehow related, if there is love, there is also a war to sustain that love. He has also pointed to the idea of obedience and disobedience. Since humans have no choice but to obey the laws of nature and suffer loss, they cannot disobey the nature and since it’s in human nature to disobey (The story of Disobedience-Adam and Eve), poets have found out or created a way of going against the laws of nature. They have created a way of their own to permanent existence of humankind.
