Comparison of Olds’s and Uyermatsu’s Poems The literature has many examples of poems that do express the direct moo at the first sights. The Rite of passage by Sharon Olds and Deliberate by Amy Uyermatsu are in this list. The first poem describes the Birthday party of a small boy who should be about six or seven years old.

"Sonnet in Primary Colors" by Rita Dove is composed around a work of art by Frida Kahlo. Dove portrays how she is tormented to look more wonderful than every one of the workers, and how Frida is grieving the demise of her loved ones. The poem is named "Sonnet in Primary Colors" even though black is not one of the primary colors. Maybe this is on the grounds that primary colors are expected to serve for the changing feeling.
Wordsworth and Muir express their fascination with nature using imagery and mood. In “Calypso Borealis”, John Muir states that he finds himself “glorying in the fresh cool beauty and charm of the bog and meadow heathworts, grasses, carices, ferns, mosses, liverworts displayed in boundless profusion” (Muir). The words “boundless profusion” appeals to the sense of sight and helps us imagine the scene and all the bountiful natural beauty of the place. The image shows Muir’s relationship with nature because it demonstrates his overwhelming, nearly spiritual, experience with nature. In the poem “I wandered lonely as a cloud”,
The poet Sandra Cisneros uses imagery to illustrate a joyful tone in the poem “Good Hotdogs.” For example, “We’d rum straight from school instead of home”(Cisneros 610).

Walt Whitman uses diction and figurative language to find the purpose of life in his poem, “O Me! O Life!”.

In the given sonnet, the speaker is telling Time to keep off the person he loves. To convey how determined the speaker is to keep Time from affecting the object of the speaker’s love, he employs a strong triad of literary devices: imagery, personification, and apostrophe. Of the five senses that can be evoked through imagery, the speaker utilizes gustatory and visual stimulation in order to support his effort to keep time from affecting his loved one. The speaker starts off the sonnet by stating that time can, “. . . make the earth devour her own sweet brood,” (2) and, “Make glad and sorry seasons as though fleet’st,” (5).
Shakespeare outline: Thesis: The Sonnets hold a strange space in the Shakespeare works of literacy, for they are studied as often by literary historians searching for biographical clues to who the author was and whom he loved, as they are by readers finding solace and stimulation in his poetry. However as much as we try and read the poems as poems – at times flirtatious, at times romantic or feverishly passionate, often cynical, sometimes bitter and frequently mournful – lurking behind our readings are 400 years of rumour and speculation about Shakespeare’s sexuality and the identity of his addressees. Perhaps that is inevitable for a collection written in the first person, as the temptation to merge the narrator’s ‘I’ with the poet’s own
“Schools are like munitions factories and ought to be turning out a constant supply of living materiel,” remarked Reverend Percy Kettlewell, former headmaster of St. Andrew’s College in 1913. The following year his words would be met with action. Many boys enlisted, 125 of them died. Against this traumatic past “Then & Now” by Thomas Crutchely and “Etched in Memory” by Andrew Renard emerge as contemporary considerations of the Great War, by poets from St Andrew’s College. Both poems try to reconcile past trauma and grief with existence in the present.
