In the poem, Orange, by Gary Soto has put great effect to the poem by adding happiness and pride the write experiences. This poem is all about love and that warm gooey feeling that you have for someone when the relationship is just starting to floum. Throughout the poem he uses descriptive words in order to point out the world around him and his emotions towards it.Soto gets there by contrasting. We know this by contrasting the end of the poem when he feels like he made a fire on his first day even though that day, the climate was very dark and yucky. Soto has achieved great effects to the scene where he describes himself peeling an orange but feels like he was making a fire because the color of the fruit was so bright.
Frost accentuates the fragility of humans and nature as they both do not last forever and cannot hold there “hue” of “gold.” Furthermore, the mention of Eden suggests a loss of innocence, as Adam and Eve’s innocence was lost in the Garden of Eden. It is conveyed that precious moments of life will pass on, only to be replaced by new ones; therefore, one should not mourn about the past but cherish the present. “Nothing Gold Can Stay” draws parallel ideas to that of the Outsiders. The poem can be described as a metaphor for the lives of Greasers, as Greasers were “first gold” possessing innocence, tenderness, and empathy. However, as
In the Middle Colonies, there was fertile soil and part of it was hilly and part of it was flat. There were some ‘mountains’, wide valleys, and fast rivers. In the Southern Colonies, like the Middle Colonies, the land there was fertile. It was very humid there. Their summers were very warm and rainy, and in the winters, it was a mild climate so it did not get very cold.
The poem “Summer Night, Riverside” by Sara Teasdale transports readers into a young, summer night. Teasdale paints a serene scene that is easily visualized because what is seen is not the only thing thoroughly described. As a reader we are given an image with sight, smell, and feelings. You can smell the “fragrant darkness” (15) and picture the moon shining down on a “curving pathway” (6) bordered by blooming trees. The author presents the reader with a magical evening and provokes sentiment for the readers own summer nights.
Mary Oliver's wild geese is an eighteen line free verse poem that addresses personal acceptance. It is free verse meaning it has no regular meter, no rhyme scheme and no pattern. This type of writing inspires the reader to search within themselves and cast away feelings of shame, guilt and/or confusion and pursue happiness on a personal level. The speaker is a persona who greatly embodies Oliver's belief in personal acceptance. This affects Oliver's tone throughout the poem as well as infuses the poem with motivation and inspiration.
He wanted to, in a sense, protect Queenie from the judgement of Lengel. The kind of protection only a “hero” can provide. Sammy is said to be, “a romantic who becomes a modernist” (Saldivar 224). To him, Queenie was the most beautiful girl he had seen. Nothing in this present world mattered at that
One can see by examining the symbolism of the setting and the irony of a welcoming setting Shirley Jackson's short story, The Lottery is not an archetypal horror story. Firstly, one can see that as the story continues, it progressively gets creepier, for an example, with the introduction of Mr.Graves, it may not be much but it is the beginning of a long slippery slope that leads to the stoning of Tessie Hutchinson. Throughout the story one would be greeted with the warm inviting descriptions, for example, “The morning of July 27th was clear and sunny with a fresh warmth of a full-summer day; The flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green”. That quote, for example, is but one, of some descriptions the shield the unexpected and off-putting ending.
The speaker asks the reader “who would cry out?” (Line 7), a rhetorical question because in reality, nobody would cry out because most people know it is necessary cycle. This contrast with the poem “Nothing Gold Can’t Stay” by Robert Frost, analyzed earlier, because that lyric illustrates that people will become upset when nature cycles its seasons. In addition, the speaker sates, “sun be swinging east” (line 20) which describes the suns movement eastward gradually becoming lower and lower making the days become shorter and colder. However, it’s important to note that the word “swinging” comes from a pendulum which is cycle. This subtlety tells the reader that the sun way be swinging east now but it will come back around and rise in the west, not all is
An Ode to Halloween As the leaves fall off the colorful trees, Fluttering to the ground with a slight breeze, They make barely a sound, Like a feather as it hits the ground, Bright colors, yellow, orange, and red, Like the feeling on Thanksgiving after being well fed, The leaves fall in a pile, one by one, And mark the time when summer is done, The leaves bring color to the crisp air, Bringing happiness, which can be rare, Appreciate the beauty of each leaf, As the departure will bring
When he talks about the things he will give her he says things like purest gold, fair lined slippers, fragrant poises, melodious birds, and pretty lambs. (Line 8, 10, 14, 15, and 16), All of these beautiful, positive, descriptive words help the reader get a positive, or idealistic, tone from this poem. Ralegh, in contrast, uses negative words to help establish the realistic point of view in his poem “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd.” In the poem Ralegh was saying things like “When rivers rage and rocks grow cold” (Line 6). Also, “The flowers do fade” (line 9) he used some of these terms because one day your love one will fade away and you won’t be able to see her again. All of these phrases help Ralegh in creating the realistic, almost negative, tone that he was looking
