The close of the death. The poem “Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night” becomes intensely personal as the poet point to his father and tells him, “Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray” which means that he wants his father to burn with feeling and emotion while he still can, even if he curses his son so long as he does not die with putting up a fight against death. Pleading with him to still be fierce. While the poem state many types of men, the fact that it ends with his father shows that the poet thinks of his father not as the grave, wild, or good men discussed previously, but that he is a category by himself. The poet wants his father to have the qualities of these men.
The first stanza refers to paths of our lives or the journeys we will take to get where we currently are in life. The preceding second stanza talks of showing us the dreams we aspire to reach and the procession of our progress towards goals in our lives. The verses that Poe writes concerning GOD seem to be referring to people whom walk a path without GOD, tend to lose their own path in their lives without Him as a guiding part of it. The fourth verse speaks of a person’s passions and aspirations they hold most dear to them. The words of the fifth verse, “By not faith alone” speak to me in terms of telling the reader to not only obtain your faith in not only yourself but also with your faith in GOD.
Most poems are written by men, yet this poem was written by a woman. It is a story about how her husband left her. She has no idea why and she wants to know why it had to happen to her. At first, she wants him to be happy, but hten she doesn’t. She realizes that if he left her and left her to lament and mourn, then he shouldn’t be able to be happy either.
In the poem. A person talks about the beauty of nature as time passes. At first nature brings a display of flowers and plants, but eventually the beauty of nature wanes, and finally dies out. This does not just apply to nature however. With anything, whether a possession, an achievement, or even a life, it does not last forever.
Our bodies are growing, but we also approach things in different ways as we meet each new day. This is true for me, people in my family, and people all around the world. While the title of the poem references a girl, as does the dedication, the message of the poem applies to everyone, especially as they are growing up and “becoming” someone in the world.This poem has affected my life, even though I have just known it for a week. It made sense to write about it because it can mean so many things, fit many different stories, and speak to anyone going through this process of growth, maturity and adventure. The author explains the journey of
The speaker describes sex without love as a runner alone within the elements. The runner sees everything around them simply as factors, but the statement revolves around a positive note. The end of the poem reflects back on the ever contemplating manner of the speaker and the mentality of the people being described. They are alone together in the world, sharing no emotional connection to each other, yet it is exactly as they want it to be. I view this poem as symbolism for a cycle of thought.
This poem serves as a cautionary tale to young women, encouraging the growth of independence over unquestioning devotion to a husband and family. It causes the reader to wonder if domestic life is the best choice for them and to evaluate the purpose it serves in society. I agree with the message this poem sends and think it is important to consider, but it should not be taken as the last word on the subject. Creating a home is very rewarding to some people and should not be viewed only as a way to keep women docile. This poem is valuable no matter how you interpret it, and it contains lessons that should be internalized and
His purpose portrayed in the last five lines of the sestet implies his empathy and concern for those who are suffering like he did. He writes: ‘Low croonings of a motherless child…/One night, if thou shouldst lie in this Sick Room/Dreading the Dark…/Listen; my voice may haply lend thee ease’. In this he states that he too will be there for the readers. The phrase ‘motherless child’ is a metaphor, I believe. Though he had a mother, he may feel as though in this time of despair he had no one to guide and comfort him therefore being ‘motherless’ and him resorting to ‘Singing his frightened self to sleep’.
In conclusion, the poets expresses their feelings, thoughts, and emotions through poetry. The poems “ My Papa’s waltz and “Those Winter Sundays” make readers understand the relationship of a father and son and proves that both of the speakers love their father but never got a chance to actually express their feeling for them and now, realizing their mistakes, they made in the past and regretting it. They both are very talented writers who knows the best way to communicate the meaning of their feeling in the poems and have control over
For the third tercet, the poet described about the moral men faced their death and compared it to the ocean. From my opinion, “… the last wave …” was about the last generation of the good men. For this stanza, I interpret it as, no matter how much good deeds the honest men did, no matter how they kept telling their stories of good deeds, it will still not be remembered no matter how significant their deeds were. So, Dylan was trying to urge these people to keep living even though they are dying, it was like if they live longer, they would show a fine example to next generation of the honorable
