They make the recipient deliberate the meaning of nature and its beauty by using their imagination. Emily Dickinson’s Will there really be a “Morning”? is incredibly short, and that is what makes it brilliant. The author uses very few words, but the questions the poem asks really makes you ponder what morning and other times of the day really mean.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is an example of a piece of literature that uses symbolism frequently. For example, it uses “garden” meaning paradise and even refers to The Garden of Eden. In the Epic of Gilgamesh by anonymous, the symbols cedar meaning immortality, mountains which represents proximity to the gods, and gates and portals symbolizing a passage to the unknown are very important within the epic itself.

Life, death, kisses and stars appear again to support the conclusion. The metrical change at “ohne” (v. 11) and the alliteration “Stern/Sterben” (v. 11-12) lend emphasis to the speaker’s message of how lucky the addressee should feel. Like other poems by Haringer, “Sommermüd” ends without punctuation mark
American poet, Robert Frost in his melancholy poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” presents the idea of nothing good lasting forever while using nature as a paradigm. This is represented through seasons with each season representing a different mood or stage in the cycle of growth. He develops his message through the personification of nature to show the drastic changes of plants. Specifically, this is presented in first couplet of the poem “Nature 's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.” The line mentioned is giving nature human characteristics of possession and movement to enhance the meaning behind the words relating to the spring season.
Robert Frost once said in a poem, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference” (The Road Not Taken 18-20), and what he means by this is that taking the riskier or harder path can yield a better outcome. A different route that nobody takes is a change that potentially can be positive.

The blank verse enables Wordsworth to easily alter topics to describe his emotions, past memories, and the impact of nature. The poem is Wordsworth encounter of a location that he has not been to in awhile and the nature is a "tranquil" environment. The Wordsworth acknowledges how he has change from the last time he was there. As a child, he saw nature consist of waterfalls, mountains, trees, and sky.
Also, in Birches it talks about how when the trees fall down, they never go back up to their original position. This is similar to “Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost because in both poems it speaks about the idea of things changing and never going back to what they originally were.

As humans, throughout our lifetime we will be faced with a moment of life altering decisions, these decisions we make will impact how we live our life. As time passes and we grow older, closer to death, it is the question of have we preserved our gold throughout the years. Poet Robert Frost challenges the act of keeping our gold in his deceptively simple poems “Nothing Gold Can Stay” and poet Edward Field’s “Icarus” demonstrates a character dealing with the loss of their gold.
