One of my favorite things to do right when I get to Florida is go in the ocean and relax on the beach. I have been to Florida many times and everytime I go there, I always have a day planned just to go to the beach and relax. I always enjoy going in the nice cold water then relaxing on the hot sand at the beach. Sometimes there are beach volleyball nets set up so my family and I always play a game if a court is available. Also my dad and I play catch on the beach with either a baseball or football.

In ‘On My Songs’ by Wilfred Owen, his ideas about poetry and its importance are voiced throughout the duration of the poem. He does this by using various techniques like metaphors, diction, and personification amongst others. One of the main ideas we can gather from this poem is that he believes that poetry is a form of release. It begins with: ‘Though unseen Poets, many and many a time/ Have answered me as if they knew my woe/…fashioned so their rime…easing the flow/ Of my dumb tears’. In this quote, Owen seems to be paying homage to all the romantic poets (like Keats and Shelly) whose poetry has been able to soothe him and has even often resounded deeply with his situation or with the problems he was going through.
Romanticism in ¨From Song of Myself¨ From song of myself, is a very open minded poem as the author Walt Whitman speaks so much in this poem about himself. Throughout the poem there is a variety of topics going on through every other line in where Walt Whitman declares that he is going to celebrate himself in his poem by all the personal opinions he provides in it. In this poem, Whitman explains how much he loves the world, especially nature and how everything fits together just as it should. To begin with, Whitman throughout the poem shows a lot about what he believes and what he's opposed to as the states that he is both the body and the soul. By providing the lines he provides, it reflects his individualism as well as gives ideas about the topic of his poem as the title says it clear that it is about himself.

They each endured the essence in their own way. Each author also used their memory as descriptive imagery to creative share the scenery and amazement of their experience. Each individual has their own personal opinion about nature and how they decide to express their feelings can be diverse, and both authors, John Muir and William Wordsworth, expressed their compassion and love for nature in their own way. Once the piece of literature begins, the reader begins feeling captivated in the imagery that the author created to be envisioned.
Neil Perry was a good student; he wanted to do what was best for him and not what his mom and dad wanted. For example, Neil loved words and acting. Neil quoted poetry and felt poetry was the highest form of creativity. At the beginning of every Dead Poets meeting, Neil would recite the following: “I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life” (Leonard).

His work is still used today and many writers and artists use his work as inspiration. Keats inspired many different types of writers such as books as wildly diverse as Neil Gaiman's graphic novels and science fiction writer Dan Simmons. His poems were great examples of what the Romantic period of poetry was all about.

He was a great example of having a rough life, but using it to his advantage.
