Im nobody! Who are you?

I'm nobody! Who are you?

Are you nobody, too?

Then there's a pair of us -- don't tell!

They'd advertise -- you know!

How dreary to be somebody!

How public like a frog

To tell one's name the livelong day

To an admiring bog!

I chose this poem because it was a very short poem and seemed interesting with the title

this story theme is about life and how people will treat others and what is is to make a name of yourself. examples are "How dreary to be somebody!" " they'd Advertise-- you know"

Realism in this poem

Their is some realism mentioned in this poem due to it being a realism of life. This poem illustates things that people think are impossible can be turned to possible.

Nature the Gentlest Mother

Nature the gentlest mother is,
Impatient of no child,
The feeblest of the waywardest.
Her admonition mild

In forest and the hill
By traveller be heard,
Restraining rampant squirrel
Or too impetuous bird.

How fair her conversation
A summer afternoon,
Her household her assembly;
And when the sun go down,

Her voice among the aisles
Incite the timid prayer
Of the minutest cricket,
The most unworthy flower.

When all the children sleep,
She turns as long away
As will suffice tolight her lamps,
Then bending from the sky

With infinite affection
An infiniter care,
Her golden finger on her lip,

Wills silence everywhere.

I chose this poem because even though it was longer it talked about nature. This made the theme easier to be understood and said.

The theme about this poem is about nature and it is shown throughout the whole poem with the squirrels, the birds and the sun.  Examples are " The most unworthy flower" "Her golden finger on her lip," " Restraining rampant squirrel".

In this poem it illustrates much about the romantic period. It has very vivid imagery about nature in the poem when it talks about he squirrels and the conversations of the sun.
