Poetry essays / Summertime
Summer is here and the sun is bright, I can stay out late and party all night. Hanging out with friends is what I like, And being with hot girls is my delight. I can’t figure out whether to play ball or skate, Maybe I should do both because both are great. But, during the summer I love to go on vacation, Because it gives me a special sensation. Finally, the summer comes to an end, And it’s ti...

Poetry essays / Suicide
He grasps the handles with shaking hands, Opening the portal to other lands. Soon he will hear the trumpets of the bands. The unstable roof withheld the nervous man. He walked to the edge and took a stand. As he fell, he suddenly had second thoughts about his terrible plan....

Chopin uses a great choice of short descriptive words to describe her setting such as: "[W]hile the storm burst. It shook the wooden store and seemed to be ripping great fur...

Poetry essays / Spirit Of Mountains
Spirit of the Mountains Grace, Beauty, tranquillity, man conquering majestic mountains, mammoth in size. Thus describes the experience, of a mountain. Like the Swiss Guard standing tall, standing proud. Their summits the pinnacle, zenith, climax, of ones life. Defeating the beast, defeating their devils, conquering their fears. Ruthless ravagers recanted, recalcitrant, shall not conquer their spi...

Poetry essays / Sound In Poetry
Poems usually begin with words or phrase which appeal more because of their sound than their meaning, and the movement and phrasing of a poem. Every poem has a texture of sound, which is at least as important as the meaning behind the poem. Rhythm, being the regular recurrence of sound, is at the heart of all natural phenomena: the beating of a heart, the lapping of waves against the shore, the c...

In "Song of Myself", Walt Whitman simultaneously Integrates the concept of himself as an individual, Completely unique in the universe, with a sense of himself as a composite of all life, of a kind of "divine watcher" who floats over the surface of humanity, observing the essential oneness of everyone within the context of their own myriad individualities. He explicates this t...

Poetry essays / Small Elegy
The title of this specific piece of poetry is "A Small Elegy". Now, this title does not really give a reader much to go on. The only thing one would know about this poem is that it is a small one and that it may be about a deceased person or someone who new someone who dies. I say this because elegy is derived from the Latin elegia , which means; A poem or song composed especially as a ...

Poetry essays / Sixth Sense
If I could see her as a picture of pure beauty, it would be an image of a thousand thoughts. If I could hear her as the sound of a beautiful bird, I would hear the most extravagant voice in the concrete world. If I could smell her the way I smelt a rose, I would smell the fresh scent of a million flowers. If I could taste her like I tasted a cherry lollipop. it would be a sensation I would never ...

Poetry essays / Shoot For Your Dreams
A young boy stands alone, on a deserted playground. With a ball in his hand, and hopes in his heart, He focuses, rises up and shoots. His life-long dream rides upon this shot. As he releases, he watches the flight of the ball, As it clangs off the rusted rim, and falls through the chain net, He is one step closer to his dream....

Poetry essays / Shel Silverstein
While I was growing up as a child, there were three authors whose works I read devoutly. One was Dr. Seuss and I liked his books so much that I am proud to say I have read every one published. The second author who had a profound impact on me was Jan Bernstein who is responsible for that loveable family The Bernstein Bears. The third is a poet, which is odd because I never have liked poetry. Shel...

Poetry essays / Shakespeare`s Poems
Time has seen an infinite amount of beauty in its long existence. Nature has produced so many wonderful scenes and objects that we cannot collect it all even in one life. We ourselves are keepers of such beauty and intrigue that poets and other writers have captured our essence in prose. Whether it’s beauty that is skin deep or the beauty of a face that makes you look twice, what attracts us is...
