This was on my english mid-term today.
"Last year changed its seasons
subtly, stripped its sultry winds
for the reds of dying leaves, let
gelid drips of winter ice melt onto a
warming earth and urged the dormant
bulbs to brave the
pain of spring.
We, loving, above the whim of
time, did not notice.
Alone, I remember now."
- Maya Angelou
We had to make a connection between a story about a man leaving for war, and his family dies, whatever, some stuff like that. Anyway the main idea between the two was the choices we make, and how they affect others. What do you think of this. I thought this poem was pretty abstract relative to the topic of choices affecting others as well as yourself, but I thought I constucted a well written essay from it, I was happy with what I wrote. I basically wrote about how the choices we make echo in eternity, some stuff to that nature.
Just comment your thoughts on it, I want to hear some opinions on it.
