The more you look at poems the more you see them in the world around you. When I stared to learn about different poetry then Edgar Allen Poe, and Shakespeare. Poetry became much less confusing and more enjoyable. Instead of looking at poems like what does this old English mean; I see this makes sense in modern English. The more complicated poems with a lot of symbolism and allusion typically go over my head, but that does not change the fact they make slight more sense now. When I wrote my two poems I tackled them with a basic outline. The second poem was adapted to fit the extra stanza all really remember from it is the stupid amount of time spent finding on words. My poem is about losing a toxic item to you like a drug or addiction; it is heavily based around the theme of fire and what it symbolizes rebirth. This is obviously after heavily revising from pear review results. A benefit or a curse is when looking at songs now I think about them as a poem and try to analyze it. Asking questions like “Does it have end rhyme?”, “Is this a free verse?”, “how many syllables are in each line?”, and etc.
For my second poem it would help a to have pictures to go with it. It relies on the reader to imagine whats going on and then assessing it. The pictures would provide aid in that area. A well suited theme would be in black and white with color only on specif objects. For example in the first line of the poem I would have a fire burning new purses and jewels. Then lead on to a red ribbon in that fire. The rest of the vises will continue with this trend and color scheme in the third line of the third stanza it would show the wold in color and the ribbon and purses in black and white. The colors would play a major rule in the understanding to highlight the change of presentations, and help people break down the theme and tone shift in the poem.
