The poem Hurt Hawks by Robinson Jeffers is a very spiritual poem about a man who finds an injured hawk that will never be able to fly again. The narrator mentions in the poem that he would rather kill a man than a hawk because a hawk has never done anything to him, but there are many people who have done things to hurt him. He takes the Hawk home with him for about six weeks until he realizes that the Hawk would rather die than not be able to fly. He shoots the Hawk and see his spirt fly off. He mentions that the Hawk not only symbolizes other hawks dying but men as well.

By incorporating all of these literary devices, Updike constructs an authentic poem and a great read. The author is truly able to chronicle all the emotions that come with having a change of heart.

In the United Sates, statistics show that the consumption of alcohol by minors has decreased in the last twenty years, but the consumption of alcohol by adults ages twenty-one through twenty-four have increased (Wechsler and Nelson 987). Waiting until you are twenty-one to legally drink is causing adults to binge drink without thinking of the consequences.
The painting Nighthawks perfectly portrays a late night in a downtown diner during the 1940’s. The dull expressions leaking off the people’s faces give off a quiet mood. When you first look at the picture your eyes catch notice to how the diner is radiating a fluorescent light through the long continuous windows into the cold dark street illuminating the neighboring buildings. A sign above the diner shows what looks to be a cigar and under that the words read to be “Only 5 C”. The word Phillies Stretches across the whole sign which leads me to believe they are advertising Phillies, or that is the name of the small diner.
The Caterpillar: Pillar of Thought The Caterpillar is a poem which focuses on the previously overlooked actions some of us may partake in, that may not be thought much of, but have short and long lasting effects on a scale we might not be very familiar with. Do we feel remorse for living organisms on a small macroscopic level, or is it just an insignificant part of our complex lives? Is the appreciation of life developed through experiences? Do we feel more pity for a single being that has been through trauma than we do for thousands that have not? In this poem, the conflict between caterpillars and humans is discussed in a such a way that brings up questions about how valuable we perceive other life to be, and how different

Kooser’s poem “A Spiral Notebook” was published in 2004, in the book Good Poems for Hard Times, depicting a spiral notebook as something that represents more than its appearance. Through the use of imagery, diction, and structure, Ted Kooser reveals the reality of a spiral notebook to be a canvas of possibilities and goes deeper to portray the increasing complexities in life as we age.
The poem I read “The Poem Wants a Drink,” by Karen Glenn, title stood out to me immediately because it isn’t a sentence you see often. It’s uncommon to describe inanimate objects as having emotions and desires, such as a poem needing a drink. To me this hinted that the poem was going to have a more dark subject matter or tone. The first stanza confirmed my initial thought that this might not be a positive poem, as the poem describes itself as a “layabout with limited ambitions.” The second stanza opens with the lines “this poem doesn't give a damn for rhyme or reason.” This line stood out to me, first because of the curse word, which is something that is generally avoided in poemes I have seen before.
Bee, by Meng Xu I’m a bee, And I love tea, Can you drink some with me? Sure, I’m a bear, And I don’t hair, Because I’m bare. Hey bee, You're distracting me, If you didn't know I’m a tree, And the only thing I want is peace. Tree can you make me some tea, Sure, my kind of
What I find most fascinating about this poem is that the author is actually sending a very truthful important message. The prostitute tells the readers the best advice she could give, which is “Keep your bottoms off barstools and marry you young or be left-an old barrel with many a bung” (31). She encourages every woman to choose the right path and not to become someone like her. Living a life of greed and only wanting to reward yourself will result in living the ultimate punishment; lonesomeness. The life of the prostitute is not a funny outcome; it is just another example of the wrong path.
Where are the birds that used to dot the sky? They're not here anymore, and I have to wonder why. Where are the fish that used to swim in this stream? I can't see them anymore. What does that mean? Where are the frogs that used to croak around this lake? I can't hear them
