I decided to help her because I wanted to please her also. Even though my daughter became upset that we were running late, I ran around the house trying to get her ready for homecoming. As I was rushing my daughter out of the house, a neighbor stopped by and asked to borrow my laptop. I had forgotten my laptop at work after my coworker stopped me. After dropping my daughter off at homecoming, I drove thirty minutes back to work and picked up my laptop to please my neighbor.
The grass may be eternal, but we are not and the stark reality of the grass covering the dead and the blood and bullets is a reminder of that difference. The grass just does what grass does, it grows, and it covers. The grass does its work and that is all it wants to do. “Get on with your business humans,” it seems to say, “and I’ll get on with mine.” While the speaker in the poem is the grass, Sandburg’s tone is unmistakable in that we understand what his feelings towards war
Anyways, I always loved going to school but that all changed when that horrible accident happened. I still remember it like it was just yesterday. It was a sunny but chilly November day. Before school, my dog Molly and I would go outside and play ball until the bus came. Before I would throw the green ball my arm was always oscillating before I actually threw it.
The sun was shining down on me, and I didn’t want to wear the hat my mom had brought so I left it in the car. It was dusty everywhere, and when I kicked my feet, the dust would come up like smoke all around me. My aunt Karen took us to her office. We had to wait for about 30 minutes because she was working that morning. She programs computers for the zoo.
Joe nodded and he immediately scrambled hard for the ridge without taking any glances to the direction of the bullets or to Tommy who was still busy throwing the earth on Arthur’s corpse. Tommy was almost there. He filled the shovel one last time and took a moment just to look down at the grave. Then he took a deep breath in and let it out once he let the shovel drop. Finally it was time for him to leave.
The Grass is Always Greener over the Battlefield: How Carl Sandburg’s use of free verse, anaphora and tone in the poem Grass inform us of how forgetting history dooms us to repeat history. Carl Sandburg’s use of free verse, anaphora and tone transform a simple eleven-lines of verse into a powerful and dynamic poem. One could apologize for the nod to Erma Bombeck’s book The Grass is Always Greener over the Septic Tank a book that uses humor to explain the growing dissatisfaction of suburban housewives in mid-century America. However while Grass is far from being a humorous poem, the image of covering over something foul and fetid with a carpet of green grass is a worthy comparison. This helps us understand that Sandburg’s antiwar message,
After arriving at the golf course, I unloaded my clubs and peregrinated towards the club house. The fresh breeze exploded upon impact with my face; I felt my body temperature cool down. The golf course was busy; therefore, I decided to practice on the range. As I approached the club house, I noticed that the front door appeared very awkward. It was blatant that it was not the right size for the frame since there were visible gaps.
On top of that work schedule her husband still expected to come home and do the chores that were expected of someone who did not work. It was very shocking to read that her husband would just leave; whereas most husbands would want to see their wives after working all day. "While they both works full-time, "it was just assumed I did all the cooking, all the cleaning, all the baking, all the clothes shopping. He didn 't even buy his own underwear... Over the years there was a lot of resentment" ' (Collins 27). I wonder how in the world did this man survive?
In fact he often forgot the time and would be home later than he should. That was when his mum really got mad; but if he was with Ferret, he was forgiven, even though Ferret was just as mischievous as Sammy himself. On these occasions whenever he was late home, Sammy’s mother would pick up her knitting and knit so over the years she knitted lots of hats and scarves. Once she knitted a scarf and just kept knitting; she was sooo worried. It was the longest scarf in the whole wide world.
I was not allowed to go everywhere Tom and my father did until I was older but just being around them at the house was very entertaining to me. The night before my first hunt was sleepless, we were going to be bow hunting out of a tree stand my dad had set up for us. The times we had before a hunt only further added to the growing passion I had developed for hunting. I awoke early the next morning so excited I was practically shaking. We put on our thick hunting clothes and made our way to the stand we would be hunting from.
I just preached to the whole city. I always feel refreshed going to the garden after my services, but this time was different. I wasn’t prepared to clean up a mess. I told Curtis to stay watching the yams while I run to the store to buy some fresh soil and new gloves. “Alright, Zosofia.
In an article called Digging In by Robert Hastings a girl explains how importants every minute of light is. In the article “Digging In” she says “After supper we “turned off the light in the kitchen” and moved to the dining-sitting room, where another light was switched on. If we wanted to read on winter afternoons, we sat as near a window as possible, with the curtains pinned back, to save the lights until it was nearly dark” They didn’t have enough money to have the light on for longer. They have to save as much money possible for later important use. Another effect the Great Depression had on people at that time was people lost their jobs.
Young Thomas Edwards was given orders by his strict mother to run to the farmers market and pick up some eggs from their dear friend Charles. On his way down there he notices people complaining all around him. He chose to ignore it; he thought nothing of it. He continued on his way minding his own business. Thomas finally reaches the farmers market which took him a good 20 minutes though the village since he lives on the outskirts of the village.

The man who taught him the basics of farming drove the wagon along the dirt road. As he went from field to field directing work, he’d call for the men to sacrifice. He meant to work without water or lunch. Dzeidek wanted me to know that a Polish farm wasn’t a baseball team. On Sunday after church, Dzeidek and I would sit on the back porch, which formed a diamond shape with the barn, bullpen, chicken coop, and house around the garden.
