This beautiful image is linked to the title of the poem, “Beloved, thou hast brought me many flowers” This can be seen as a sonnet about love. It is possible that we, as the readers, get the impression that the speaker is speaking about the love that she shares with her lover (for the purpose of this essay I will assume that the speaker is female) in the form of flowers and poetry. She uses the imagery of flowers and the planting of flowers and the actual poetry to describe the love that they share. This essay looks at the sonnet by Elizabeth Barret Browning and uses the quote by Leigh Hunt to analyse the sonnet. The speaker opens the sonnet by saying “Beloved, thou hast brought me many flowers/Plucked in the garden, all summer through/and winter” (Lines 1-2).
She tries to ignore all the affections that she doesn’t want from her husband. As the poem comes to an end the speaker talks to the ladies from an experience that if you do such and such, it would make your more wiser and happier. A woman must remember her importance and cherish her values as a strong individual. “Value yourselves, and men despises/ you must be proud, if you’ll be wise” (23-24). She ends the poem with a strong inspirational opinion, that even if a man breaks you down and does not value you, you have to value yourself, and must be proud of yourself, and for that you will be
Unlike in the poem What my lips have kissed, and where, and why by Edna St. Vincent Millay has a depressing tone. By telling us how it has not been easy to find love and when she has found it has not lasted. She also talks about all her past lovers and how they have all left her. As she continues to look for a love she is losing hope and giving up she is always left alone and she is getting older and her looks are fading which is not helping. This makes the reader feel sorry for her and makes her poem have a sorrowful
I think that the reason the last word is ‘grave’ because that is surely the end which ends the poem with horrible closure, however, the flowers give a somewhat positive image. The vocabulary used to describe the situation she is in are words such as ‘odours, diarrhoea, unwashed children, blown empty bellies, washed out, dried up’ all give an unhygienic image of the conditions of this refugee
This poem (sonnet 18) is devoted to praising a friend or lover, traditionally known as the 'fair youth', the sonnet itself a guarantee that this person's beauty will be sustained. Even death will be silenced because the lines of verse will be read by future generations, when speaker and poet and lover are no more, keeping the fair image alive through the power of verse. The main theme in this poem is the stability or immortality of love and beauty, In the first 4 lines (quatrain), Shakespeare asks if he should compare his loved one - to a summer's day. The obvious answer would seem to be that he should, but in fact he does not. He goes on to say that his beloved is more lovely and more temperate than such a beautiful day.
In the case of the drunken father, who feels rambunctious enough to enter the home and engage in an inappropriate manner of dancing, that leads to a physical abuse of a child in his home. The meaning of love is deep in this poem for a child to hold on even when face with fear never gave up on an abuse full father. The undeniable fact, in this poem is that a person who suffering from alcoholism needs to wake up and realize the negative effect he is causing his family with his addiction. There is an old saying that time can heal wounds, but memories are a thing that can destroy families forever. The poem “My Papa’s Waltz” is design to open the mind and heart of those suffering from negative love and repair what is missing before it is too
In parts of “Love Poem” where the author describes his love as “unpredictable” (Nims 2) and “clumsiest” (Nims 1), we don't see any clear signs of the author using any references. Instead, the author is using words and metaphors that clearly express how they feel about their loved one. The lack of allusions that the author chose to do really made the piece very personal to the author, since they are the only ones who really see that side of their loved one. On the other poem, “Love Song: I and Thou”, the author seems to have excessive use of references throughout in both their reference to Jesus at the cross, and the references the author makes through their ongoing metaphor. Near the end of the poem, the author mentions how they “can nail [their] left palm to the left-hand cross piece” (Dugan), obviously alluding to Jesus and His death on the cross.

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.
On the other hand, love is not as easily recognized in Sonnet 130. It can be found, however, in line 13 of Sonnet 130 when it says, “And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare.” This line means that he thinks that his love is extraordinary. While the subject matter appears very different, the message of both poems is the same. Through the poems, Shakespeare communicates that love is the same no matter the circumstances. In Sonnet 18, Shakespeare says that his lover will stay youthful and live forever in text; however, he knows realistically that his lover will age and die.
