Bradstreet put her feeling and how profoundly she misses him in every sentences of the poem.

A significant virtue Homer’s story covers is the importance of loyalty. The most notable exudation of loyalty is when Odysseus’ wife, Penelope, waits faithfully for ten years for the return of her husband.
