Fantasy to Reality

In the past, he was just my fantasy,
I even know some of his biography.
And now I still can't believe he became my friend, my only wish is our friendship will never end. He is a little bit popular in school, but he is genial and natural person which is cool.
I can't forget our first conversation, his overall feature captured my attention. I feel uncomfortable when he's here,
I even feel cold whenever he's near. my spirit suddenly flew, every time he comes out of the blue.

God, The Father

You never chose to hurt me.

Even if I am a sinful lady,

You are always willing to forgive me.

Even if I am moody and naughty,

You still accepted the real me.

I can't imagine life without You,

You are the Father who made me dreams came true.

You gave directions and clue,

in order to follow the path wherever I go.

You were the one who never gave up on me,

You are the one who loved me truly.

You are always there to guide me,

You made my wishes come into reality.


I never thought living in this place,

but for her, I am their cute received grace.

In God, she always prays,

to have a child a little bit same as her face.

She never got tired of telling me,

the person she wanted me to be.

She never gave up on me,

even if I am a brat dummy.

She wants us to be together,

sharing thoughts with each other.

I will never find another,

Cause she's the only person I can "Mother".

Moving On

It's really hard to say goodbye,

to my one and only guy.

It's really hard to tell a lie,

when my friends will ask me why.

My tears came running down,

it can even make the people drown.

And sadly I didn't have the crown,

to be the girl he'll be proud of in our town.

Time is running fast,

but my love for him didn't last.

All I remember is our past,

but forgetting him is a must.

Moving on is what I will do,

even if the pain will be multiplied by two.

He'll no longer be my boo,

cause the past we had is hard to undo.

Girl Facts

Girls may as moody as hell,

But swear they will also treat you well.

Their mouth might be like of a bell,

But life won't be complete without them, I tell.

Girls might be overacting,

They sometimes tell people what they are feeling.

With them, your life would be thrilling,

Cause understanding them is what you will be doing.

Girls may tell you "we're over",

But regret it after they lose their temper.

Apologizing is what they will do after,

That's why girls are the best lover.

Girls may slap and pinch you,

But mostly sweet things are what they do.

Maybe you guys might not know,

But a girl's love is honest and true.

Guy Facts

Guys may ask many girls out,

But there's this one girl who can make their hearts shout.

They will love you without any doubt,

They are the best partners you can't live without.

Guys may play a game,

And winning is what they always aim.

In others they sometimes don't have any shame,

That's why sometimes you think they are lame.

Guys may possibly curse a lot,

But when the girl they like is there, they keep their mouth shut.

The cutest thing guys are good at,

Is making your heart melt in just one shot.

Guys may be naughty when they're with their friend,

But can be a good boy when they're with their girlfriend.

They won't let a relationship end,

And taking care of you is what they always tend.

...pocket, for my ticket. A poem should always have birds in it. Kingfishers, say, with their bold eyes and gaudy wings. Rivers are pleasant, and of course trees. A waterfall, or if that’s not possible, a fountain rising and falling. A person wants to stand in a happy place, in a poem. When the woman turned I could not answer her face. Her beauty and her embarrassment struggled together, and neither could win. She smiled and I smiled. What kind of nonsense is this? Everybody needs a job. Yes, a person wants to stand in a happy place, in a poem. But first we must watch her as she stares down at her labor, which is dull enough. She is washing the tops of the airport ashtrays, as big as hubcaps, with a blue rag. Her small hands turn the metal, scrubbing and rinsing. She does not work slowly, nor quickly, like a river. Her dark hair is like the wing of a bird. I don’t doubt for a moment that she loves her life. And I want her to rise up from the crust and the slop and fly down to the river. This probably won’t happen. But maybe it will. If the world were only pain and logic, who would want it? Of course, it isn’t. Neither do I mean anything miraculous, but only the light that can shine out of a life. I mean the way she unfolded and refolded the blue cloth, The way her smile was only for my sake; I mean the way this poem is filled with trees, and birds.

Interpreting the Un-Interpretable

...and Rutabagas in a Landscape”, where a straightforward explanation of the poem is almost impossible. Therefore, in accordance with Poulet’s literary theory, I would like to unite my consciousness with Ashbery’s and provide my own interpretation of the poem: the poem is not meant to be understood. Upon reading the poem, the reader is immediately confronted with numerous questions. Who is sending the messages in the first and third stanzas? What do they mean? What is all the scratching about? Why is Swee’pea sad? Why is Popeye shooting green thunderbolts, and what is he laughing about at the end of the poem? These are merely questions about the plot of the poem, but there are also several technical questions. For example, in line 23 the thunder is described as loving. Since when does thunder have emotions? These are some of the questions I faced upon examining the poem. At some point, the reader should realize that the poem’s ambiguity cannot be coincidental; there are simply too many questions. Perhaps the poem is sending the reader the following message: certain things are not meant to be understood. (This is reminiscent of Oedipus Rex, where Oedipus searches for Total Knowledge against the warnings of the other characters, resulting in devastating consequences.) The poem hints at this through its consistent use of seemingly random, non-sequitor dialogue. In the first stanza, the poem begins by describing a coded message, but jumps to the Sea Hag......

Theme of Love

...Rebecca Kinard Professor Scollon English 102 Mondays and Wednesdays at 1:45-3:00 19 February 2014 The main theme of the two poems is love. However, their prospective on the topic differs just slightly. In “Love is Not All” by Edna St. Vincent Millay tells how love will not cure a sickness or injury, but in some way it is still a necessity in life. Whereas in “Since feeling is First” by E. E. Cummings describes how love is more important than logic in the end and how you should not worry about what you are getting out of love because it is essential for a well-balanced life. The main theme in the two poems is how love is not explainable, but is needed for a well-balanced life. They both portray that love is not necessarily logical. It cannot be described or explained perfectly because you do not think about it. It just needs to be in your life. Love never heals the sick or weak, but it does have a powerful influence on our well-being. Love is not all about living in the reality of things. However, at the end of it all they still represent what someone feels love is and the main theme in both of these poems is love. Even though they are comprised of the same theme they are very much different on the point of view of love and also structure. Their prospective on love can cause these poems not to be paired together because they are so different. “Love is Not All” asks the question what can love do for you, why do we hold love so highly. It also explains that even though...

Poetry Essay

...emotional goodbye. Even though depressing, death is both necessary, and sometimes rewarding in a sense of cleanse and beginning of a new state. PARAGRAPH Mid-Term Break is a poem relating to my theme by the death of a young boy. This poem happens to capture the normal reaction to death, although shown differently by random people. The father taking it the worse, “In the porch I met my father crying – He had always taken funerals in his stride.” The boy was seemingly confused by death, and what it actually was to behold until the end of the poem. “He lay in the four foot box as in his cot. No gaudy scars, the bumper knocked him clear. A four foot box, a foot for every year.” A hard line to read as we learn in the end that he was a young boy, while his brother realizes that death is definitely not forgiving. He also notices that death is not always violent or shocking in appearance, but cold and unchangeable due to the pale and empty look of his brother. A very sad poem and challenging time for family and friends. PARAGRAPH Let Evening Come is a less depressing poem relating to death. It is more of a poem in acceptance of death, and reaffirmation that it is normal and ok. Death in this poem refers more to the dying of day, the end of routines, and the start of something new. Near the end of the poem, the author does compare the ending of the day to be as normal as air in the lung, but finishes it up with a few lines of comfort, “Let it come as it will, and don’t’ be......

...Written by Roger McGough, “At Lunch Time – A story of Love” is a poem that encourages its addressees to seize the moment and to enjoy life while they can. This ethical value, according to Russian Formalist, is not more important as its aesthetical value of the poem. Unlike the classical approaches to literary criticism that focus both on the aesthetical and ethical dimensions of a literary text, Formalists consider that a literary work is recognized through its form rather than its meaning. Accordingly, the literary devices of a text are indispensible to bring the meaning to the surface and to shed light on the literariness of a text. Following a Formalist stance, this essay will tackle some major artistic devices, which are irony and graphological deviation, and how they defamiliarize a literary text. The striking feature about this poem is the heavily presence of situational irony. This can be seen, for instance, in the speaker’s behavior. He seizes the opportunity of making love to a completely stranger woman in a bus. Ironically, the woman’s refusal of the speaker’s repulsiveness is simply because “it was too early in the morning and too soon after breakfast”. But after that “she joined the exercise”. Situational irony does not only draw readers’ attention to the humorist representation of love making, but also draws his attention to the artfulness of the poem making it unfamiliar from texts such as a newspaper article. This literary device also reflects a message......

Dust of Snow

...After reading the poem “Dust of Snow” by Robert Frost, it appears that Frost is trying to hint at the fact that its the little things in our lives that can make huge changes in our future. It also shows that if we can take the hard times in life and keep moving that something will eventually happen to change our situation into happier times. And even though these little things may go unnoticed, they help bail you out in the long run. Aside from my first impression of the poem, I was able to notice certain symbols appear. For example, there is slight irony displayed to me in the first couple lines of the poem. In the first line of the poem Frost mentions a crow. Normally in literature and in life, crows are used as symbols to represent both death and fear. But as I read the second and third lines I was able to recognize slight irony. On those lines when Frost said that the crow “Shook down on me/ The dust of snow” it was as if the crow was doing him a favor. This is the ironic part because as I mentioned earlier, crows are normally used as symbols for both death and fear but in this instance the crow did a good deed by shaking off the snow. It is also ironic the type of tree that Frost has the crow standing upon. Frost didn’t choose any ordinary random tree. He purposely chose to use a hemlock tree. Many may not realize they ironic image that Frost is displaying because a hemlock tree is usually associated with poison and toxicity. This image is ironic because he has a crow......

Casual Wear

...Michelle Lyda Jessica Hutchman English 113 9 November 2011 Casual Wear In the fast-paced world of today’s news and media, the true meaning and emotion of many leading stories is lost in the endless reel of current events. James Merrill constructs his poem, “Casual Wear,” in a similar fashion; the first eight lines of the poem distantly describe a female tourist and a male terrorist, not as people, but as statistics. It is only in the final two lines of the poem that Merrill injects any emotion into the work and connects the two seemingly unrelated individuals. In “Casual Wear,” Merrill uses contrasting viewpoints to convey both the resolution of the terrorist and the direness of the death of the tourist. Most of “Casual Wear” focuses on “your average tourist” and “your average terrorist;" it is not until the last two lines that the poem reveals, indirectly, that the terrorist is responsible for killing the woman, who is given the title, in the last two words of the poem, “wife” (Merrill 907). The unexpected outcome provides the reader with the fierce shock of reality on a personal level. Since the only name given to the woman is “wife” and the odds were “1 to 910 against her strolling past the Embassy,” the reader is given the impression that this is something that could happen to anyone, anywhere (Merrill 907). The shift in tone from detached to very personal provides the reader with the stark contrast between a generalized newscast and the very personal level on...

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and soon became a well-known poet, he had a high social ranking in society. In 1915 Elliot’s poem, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, was published in a magazine (Kennedy). The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock is about a man who is very self-conscious about his appearance and worries what other people think of him. Prufrock has such a low self-esteem he is unable to approach women of a high class, because he thinks he is not good enough for them. Throughout the poem Prufrock explains and vividly describes the emotions he feels about himself and the social world around him. In T.S. Elliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock love, impassiveness, time, appearances, and symbology are themed into this poem. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock is a dramatic monologue; a dramatic monologue is when a person in a poem describes himself or herself to a silent listener due to a critical situation that has occurred in his or her life (“dramatic monologue”). Elliot was no rule follower he did not use regular meter instead he played with the form and rhyme of his poems (Sipple). Elliot started his poem off by having Prufrock invite his reader on a journey: LET us go then, you and I, When the evening is spread out against the sky Like a patient etherised upon a table; (Lines 1-3) Elliot writes in the first stanza “you and I” the speaker refers to himself as “I” supporting the poems form as a dramatic monologue.

Where the Side Walk Ends

...Kelsey Moore Nov 11, 2013 Eng 101 Looking into Where the Sidewalk Ends Have you ever asked questions, or thought about what is behind the scenes. Why does it seems like only children use their imagination anymore? I think the poem, Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein is saying that exact thing. This poem is talking about a place that is peaceful, with no problems. But not just anyone can go to this place, and only the people with the eye to see it realize it is there. The first two line is the poem stats, “ There is a place where the sidewalk ends, and before the street begins,” That right there makes me think automatically this might be about something magical, or something where you have to think outside of the obvious and use your imagination. Which it seems like it gets more and more difficult for people to do these days. To me everything is a yes or a no. Or a straight forward answer this poem is already in the first two lines making me think that maybe there is more out there then what we see to a natural eye, you may just have to look outside of the big picture and see the small pictures. Line thee and four make me think a little bit, the state, “and there the grass grows soft and white, and there the sun burns crimson bright.” This changes up my thought because the grass growing soft and white makes me think it is almost like snow. The grass at this place is not the normal weird color green and itchy like we normally have in......

What about the imagery? Has it changed even though the words are the same? Also be sure to explain how the poem has changed the meaning, mood, imagery and/or tone of the poem; for example, use short excerpts from each poem to demonstrate the change and how it has changed (or not changed). The original version has a simple meaning, which is about beloved woman. The tone is placid and joyful. The mood is delighted, because it is about love, the most wonderful thing on the world. The poem creates an image of a temperate and lovely woman, who has beautiful eyes, makes people feel warm. In the changed version, the tone has a huge change--- it becomes random, because the words are arranged randomly. In some lines like "often as Death Rough shall too lines fair", the tone is solemn; in some lines like "can summer's shake sometime breathe", the tone is a little windy. The mood of the new version is not stable, just like the tone of it. I do not really have a image in my mind when I read it. These are all caused by the randomly arranged words....

...pleasant to human ears because it attempts to the most random of things, human speech, and tries to bring it into some sort of order and pattern. Order and Pattern formed by Rhyme: Most students think that poetry is made when words are brought together which have the same kind of sound at the end of them, but this is only one type of the many kinds of rhyme. Old English poetry, for example, is works with alliteration, that is when a series of words begin with the same letter while remaining in beat. Meanwhile, the kind of poetry we are used to has end rhyme. Even this pattern can be slightly altered by having the end words match in two syllables [singing and flinging]. This is named feminine rhyme (why, I don't know), and while there are times that it appears in serious works, most often this type of matching of two last syllables creates a light fun touch. The pattern of rhyme can also vary: The "Sonnet," the Heroic and Ballad all by their nature lay out very specific patterns of rhyme within and between stanzas (or verses). Also students should know that rhyme has been discarded entirely, called free verse, leaving only the beat or rhythm of the words to create a sense of pattern. Order and Pattern formed by Rhythm While I will not go into this at the present the student should also know that poetry can be categorized by its method of rhythm and time. . .in other words its beat.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

...consumerism; “For Tomorrow, he knew, all the Who girls and boys/Would wake bright and early. They’d rush for their toys!” (10th rhyming couplet/19th line). The poem plays the idea of materialism and directly connects it with Christmas. The main character, the Grinch, is of the lower economic class and resists bourgeoisie. He does not celebrate Christmas, and purely hates the positive spirit that comes with it. The Grinch thought to himself that he will stop Christmas from coming if he steals all the items that were bought in preparation for Christmas. The poem is directed towards an audience of young children whose families celebrate Christmas. If a child whose family did not celebrate Christmas due to religion or finances, the child would not understand the poem and the feeling the author is trying to convey. The title of the poem also twiddles the idea of materialism because the Grinch who stole Christmas actually didn’t steal Christmas; he stole all the presents and food that was meant for Christmas day. No one can actually steal Christmas as if it is an object. Christmas is a holiday that is meant to be celebrated by Christians and throughout time people and companies have marketed Christmas as a consumer’s holiday.

Poem Analysis #2

...All DocsEdit Poem analysis #2 Corbin Casmey Poem response #2 “Blackberries for Amelia” by Richard Wilbur In the story, “Blackberries for Amelia”, the first stanza describes the blueberry bushes and how they grow in abundance. The second stanza is similar in the way it describes the blueberry bushes, but it describes for what the bushes look like; flowers, small and chalky white, some deep within the bushes and others covering the outside, some close and others far. The third stanza is where it starts to create depth. The first part of the stanza says, “As the far stars, of which we now are told that even faster do they bolt away” is talking about summer nights, and time in general, and how fast it goes. The second part says, “We shall have only blackness to behold” which essentially states that the speaker believes there isn’t much time left for him/her. The fourth stanza, is basically saying that although the speaker does not have a lot of time left, he/she will be there to see August and the blueberries arrive. Finally, the last stanza describes the speaker and the grandchild, most likely Amelia, going out and picking the blueberries together. I personally liked this poem and the simplistic story it told. In my opinion it was about the simple things. The speaker talked about the blueberry bushes and flowers is such intimate detail. He then described death in such a peaceful way as he had no fear of it. Then he speaks of how he has August to look......

Marxist Structure of Dr Seuss

...Dr. Seuss’ poem, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, exemplifies the features of a Marxist structure. The Marxist lens examines the social-economic factors and how it impacts the character’s beliefs, values, attitudes and ideas. The protagonist is Grinch, who lives isolated in a snow cave north of Whoville, where the majority of the townspeople live. Grinch “prefers” to be alienated from the community because he despises the ‘Whos’ and their annual Christmas traditions. However, it is not his preference that motivates him to resent Christmas, but his financial struggles that do not correlate to the ‘Whos’. As a result, in the celebration of Christmas, Grinch does not receive nor is able to afford gifts for others, thus, provoking him to despise the festivity of Christmas and the people who celebrate it. One example would be how the Grinch describes into great detail of the materialistic gifts the ‘Whos’ receive on Christmas, “they’d rush for their toys”, which is an example of the Grinch’s interest and observation into the activities on Christmas. From a Marxist point of view that conflicts are a result of social-economic factors, the apparent idea of the poem is made clear: money makes the world go around. In the quote, “then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant, around the room, and he took every present”, the reader is made aware that since the Grinch does not have these lavish items in comparison to the ‘Whos’, his actions signify his belief of how......
