In the text Irwin says, “ the yellow fruit,leaves whose scent/was that of a clove in the godsome/air.. ” (14 -16) . The imagery talks about the fruit sacredly, but also like the narrator is telling a fantasy, especially because of the word “godsome”. Instead of saying awesome they use “godsome” to create an out of this world feeling. The “godsome” air shows the fanciful tone they use with the idea of their father. In “My Father's Hats” Irwin also says “imagine/ I was in a forest, wind hyming”( 5- 6).
In addition, both the scythe and the rake are highly vertical symbols, both contributing to the composition of the piece. Overall, Monet’s Spring depicts a serene, dreamy view using a calming composition and soft depictions of trees, while van Gogh’s The Flowering Orchard creates upward energy and momentum using repeated vertical compositional techniques and forceful
Tom Roberts was born on the 8th of March 1856 in Dorchester, England before moving to Australia at the age of 13. There he studied in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria Art School before returning to his homeland in 1881. Selected to study at The Royal Academy of Art School, he toured to Spain where he met numerous notable artists who introduced him to the principles of impressionism in which he would later become world-renowned. Returning once again to Melbourne in 1885, Roberts, in light of his new experience and passion, painted many of his most known works, including Shearing the Rams, representing Australia’s landscape, weather and sparsely populated land. During the 1890’s Roberts travelled

In order to keep their civilians safe mainly Children, the British government sent the children away to a safer area away from the bombs. In. “ The Thing in the Forest” that’s what happened to penny and primrose.
The reader is immediately shown ripe red apples from Cape Ann in October, and one after another, the speaker uses similes to compare one part of nature to another. One aspect of an image is used to describe another image: the maple trees were colored like the red apples; the trees swayed like the sky, and the sky was filled flocks of geese, much like the golf course was covered with starlings. The connection of all the images in the first stanza would concentrate on the abundance of birds, which would become a cloud moving that reminded him of god creating and magnets moving iron fillings. He notices the flock of birds making dark “compressed and firm” spots like rocks. The speaker’s vivid comparison and description of objects on the golf course conveys the idea of unity in nature.
It is, however, also possible to read a secondary stress on the second syllable of “meergrünen” and thus further emphasise the adjective, which compares the pond’s colour to the sea and adds depth and darkness to the image. The double letter “m” at the word boundary “dem meergrünen” contributes to the incantatory tone and magical, dreamlike atmosphere of the poem. While red and green are mentioned specifically several times throughout the poem, the other pair of colours is only alluded to. As both parts of the first stanza employ contrasting images, it is easy to imagine the blackness of the oak and the pale whiteness of the moonlight in the third and fourth verse, even though only the first two verses contain adjectives referring to colour. The vivid and contrasting colours of the first stanza might indicate either that it is evening rather than late night or that the moon shines very bright.
As winter comes, the oak tree leaves turn brown and fall while the trees maintain their appearances and keep alive. This sentence where Steinbeck describes a change of season is a significant example of the characteristics of nature, which involve life and death at the same time. Moreover, nature sometimes simultaneously becomes the cause and effect of
This may sound a bit confusing, but once it is broken down, its quite simple. Frost uses synecdoche in line five when he says “Then leaf subsides to leaf” Earlier in the poem, Frost says that the leaves are like flowers, meaning they are not a normal leaf. Therefor his meaning behind “then leaf subsides to leaf” is that the extraordinary and beautiful leaves that he described in the beginning of the poem, are now subsiding, or transforming back to the ordinary leaf. He also uses synecdoche when he says line eight, “Nothing gold can stay”. Again earlier in the poem he compares the greens of nature to gold, “Nature’s first green is gold”.

Also, there are snow covered tree branches and patches of snow and ice on the path every now and then.
