In the poem by Sax, he uses anaphoras in the end of the poem by using “this is … this is…” (l. 9-11) in the beginning of each sentence to describe the likeliness of each object to his emotion. The setting of his poem is more ambiguous than Levine’s poem but it could be inferred that it’s at night during winter it could also be in the character’s house during that time as the character remembers the memories that cause him to grieve. Levine’s poem uses symbolism to describe the character’s time of revelations during his process of grieving which is mentioned as a dance but is really the time spent walking in the woods (l. 19). The setting of Levine’s poem is in the woods which can be inferred from the imagery of pinecones and mountain

Lux had two tones that he was speaking: In the beginning, Lux was speaking in a formal tone because in the poem he used “you” and “your”. When “you “and “your” is being used in this context, the writer is talking directly to the readers and trying to catch their attention. When Lux uses those words, he wants to establish a connection with his audience and make it seem interesting for his readers to read. Then Lux tone transitioned into a fascinating feeling because he showed descriptive how words can have a different meaning to other people: In this poem “the word ‘barn’ that the writer wrote but the ‘barn’ you say is a barn you know or knew” (line 16-19). The reason Lux stating that because he is comparing the two emotions that it has.
The person that is talked about in this poem seems to feel a sense of regret for things he has or has not done during their life stemming from the fact the person personified in this poem seems to really know themselves. Other emotions/feelings that can be felt are feelings of insecurity and possibly hopelessness. The possibility exists that the person mentioned in this poetry is not confident in the choices they have made and feels impossibly hopeless to the outcome of their decisions. Finally, the idea of needing companionship can also be interpreted and felt whether in a physical sense or more so literally in a spiritual sense within this poem “This poem is one of the most difficult Poe ever wrote; the explanation by Wilbur (Poe, p. 122) may be synopsized. In youth the author communed with nature, especially the sun and stars, but did not understand the “power” (1-8).
But the poem from its very beginning becomes very aggressive as the words suggest “For God’s sake”, where it refers to an acerbic suggestion of the speaker to defend his love. The main idea that is carried in the poem throughout is that his love does not interfere with the lives of the
The poem is an aclamation to British stoicism and masculine rectitude. It consist of advice from a parent to child since, It is written in an edifying and moralizing tone of an older man offering his personal wisdom to a younger boy. The poem contains an agglomeration of characteristics and atributes regarded as essential to the ideal man.Above all things he expects his son to be a true leader. Kipling's "If" is written in a strong rythmic pulse, iambic pentameter. We can speculate about its effect, however.
Being human implies having the ever prevalent emotion of fear. In our lives, we perceive the aspects of fear constantly and people have this instilled in us at a very early stage in life. Shel Silverstein, a children’s poet, wrote countless poems about the monsters that people face and how they cope with them. Specifically, in Silverstein’s poem “The Toy Eater” he uses the element of imagery to not only frighten children, but to also teach them a valuable lesson about themselves and about the constraints of society. Throughout the brief poem, Silverstein creates the monster in question without every truly describing it at all.
“The Wild Life of Christian the Lion” and “Wild Home” share a theme which is letting wild animals grow up free. The poem by Rebecca Kai Dotlich shares the vision that Ace and John had in the story, written by Ted Olson. Both Ace and John knew immediately that they wanted to set Christian the lion free. Ace and John in the story probably visioned Christian lying in the sun with his packmates and being free, which is what the poem is about. Both the story and the poem have lions and both sound like thoughts from a human perspective.
In “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd,” the comments to the shepherd seem to have a more harsh tone, because of the lack of belief that love could possibly be this perfect. Throughout this speaker’s poem, concerns about the fading away of the shepherd’s promises seem to reveal themselves. This poet seems to believe that these promises will soon break, wither, and be forgotten. The speaker says that even if all of the promises of the shepherd could be fulfilled, “then these delights my mind might move.” This usage of the word, “might” implies that the probability of the poet going to live with the shepherd remains slim, no matter what the circumstances. Basically, the poet’s reply to the shepherd comes from a realistic viewpoint of one who refuses to believe in the hope of “perfect” love.
We know this because the speaker says that we as readers do not take the time to understand what is being said. This is shown when the speaker says, “All they want to do / is tie the poem to a chair with rope” (13-14). This means that we try to hold the poem in place and make sure that it cannot move or be free while we study it. We even go to the extreme just to figure out what the message of the poem is: “They begin beating it with a hose / to find out what it really means” (15-16). This is where we learn and reflect back as readers that we do not take the time to appreciate the poem for what it is really worth, but try to find out what it means by not learning from it, and try to go too in depth as to what the poem actually is
