    I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noon-day dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the Sun. I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, 10 And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder. I sift the snow on the mountains below, And their great pines groan aghast; And all the night 'tis my pillow white, While I sleep in the arms of the blast. Sublime on the towers of my skiey bowers, Lightning my pilot sits; In a cavern under is fettered the thunder, It struggles and howls at fits; 20 Over Earth and Ocean, with gentle motion, This pilot is guiding me, Lured by the love of the genii that move In the depths of the purple sea; Over the rills, and the crags, and the hills, Over the lakes and the plains, Wherever he dream, under mountain or stream, The Spirit he loves remains; And I all the while bask in Heaven's blue smile, 30 Whilst he is dissolving in rains. The sanguine Sunrise, with his meteor eyes, And his burning plumes outspread, Leaps on the back of my sailing rack, When the morning star shines dead; As on the jag of a mountain crag, Which an earthquake rocks and swings, An eagle alit one moment may sit In the light of its golden wings. And when Sunset may breathe, from the lit Sea beneath, Its ardours of rest and of love, 40 And the crimson pall of eve may fall From the depth of Heaven above, . With wings folded I rest, on mine äery nest, As still as a brooding dove That orbed maiden with white fire laden Whom mortals call the Moon, Glides glimmering o'er my fleece-like floor By the midnight breezes strewn; And wherever the beat of her unseen feet, Which only the angels hear, 50 May have broken the woof, of my tent's thin roof, The stars peep behind her, and peer; And I laugh to see them whirl and flee, Like a swarm of golden bees, When I widen the rent in my wind-built tent, Till the calm rivers, lakes, and seas, Like strips of the sky fallen through me on high, Are each paved with the moon and these. I bind the Sun's throne with a burning zone And the Moon's with a girdle of pearl; 60 The volcanos are dim and the stars reel and swim When the whirlwinds my banner unfurl. From cape to cape, with a bridge-like shape, Over a torrent sea, Sunbeam-proof, I hang like a roof -- The mountains its columns be! The triumphal arch, through which I march With hurricane, fire, and snow, When the Powers of the Air, are chained to my chair, Is the million-coloured Bow; 70 The sphere-fire above its soft colours wove While the moist Earth was laughing below. I am the daughter of Earth and Water, And the nursling of the Sky; I pass through the pores, of the ocean and shores; I change, but I cannot die -- For after the rain, when with never a stain The pavilion of Heaven is bare, And the winds and sunbeams, with their convex gleams, Build up the blue dome of Air -- 80 I silently laugh at my own cenotaph And out of the caverns of rain, Like a child from the womb, live a ghost from the tomb, I arise, and unbuild it again.

    Azureus, you will need to answer this. How *does* this poem make you feel? Do you want to start a discussion about responses, in general, to the poem? If so, you will need to start with how it makes you feel. Or are you having any other difficulties with the poem that you would like to explore?

    Harsh Response... ok umm this peom, how it starts is very majestic like or just focused onthe inner person of yourself. the peom is very nice and it seem to feel as if it is meant to be read to someone who were to have a uncomfortable presence to you

    No, not really. First of all, the question asks how this poem makes the questioner feel -- which no one else can answer for him. Second of all, OpenStudy is designed for *study.* It is appropriate to ask for help with something you're having difficulties with. It is appropriate to discuss, to debate, and, where someone is having difficulty mastering a concept, to explain. It is not appropriate simply to post homework, quiz, or test questions and to ask other people to supply the answers. And it is not appropriate simply to hand out answers to other people's homework, quizzes, or tests. That is not studying. All of this is spelled out in the OpenStudy Code of Conduct (http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct) . . . . OpenStudy values the Learning process - not the ‘Give you an answer’ process - Don’t post only answers - guide the asker to a solution. - Have homework problems? We can help you - as long as you are looking to learn how to get your solution (and not just the answer). - Please do not copy and paste your problems. If people are going to spend time to help you, you should at least spend the time to ask your question as clearly as possible. Don't devalue the question/answer process! - Don't provide someone with just the answer - explain the process, and help guide them through understanding the problem. - Don't just provide the answer to a problem when someone else is in the middle of helping! But if you want to help, by all means, join in! Sometimes students are not fully aware of the site's aim. I was simply putting in a reminder. All of this being said, for any one of us, answering a question about how a poem makes us *feel* is nothing anyone else can answer. That must come solely from within each person him- or herself.

    Almost everyone of us have a way of doing things, most of us have been using Open Study for a while so we have learned ways to teach and study with other people. Not everyone just gives answers, however some do and what can we do? Giving harsh response will not change anything. The best thing to do is to set an example, Redwood_Girl. When someones asks a question, don't make it seem harsh. i say harsh because it is the mood that you have set for the the question asked.

    Ok, @azureus - what exactly are you looking for with this question? If you're looking for an answer to give for your homework or class, I'm afraid that this is against our Code of Conduct (as well stated by @Redwood_Girl ) and this question usually would be deleted. @bdurbin - I care. OpenStudy cares. Our good users, like @Redwood_Girl care. This is a place where people devote hours of their time to helping people they've never met. They deserve the respect of those people, and we at OpenStudy do not tolerate people taking away from OpenStudy. @hereweg0 - In terms of 'what can we do?' my answer would be to look at @Redwood_Girl's response above. OpenStudy is a community, and while yes, I work for OpenStudy - it is my opinion that OpenStudy is truly owned by you, the user. So when people just provide answers, either take a stand or report abuse. Both are preferable to just accepting and tolerating other people's behavior. Also, given that we're here to learn, this is the ONLY way to really help students. Sure, someone who receives all the answers to their test will be pleased, but how will that really serve them in the future? I'm glad this dialogue happened, and I hope that many people see it. We at OpenStudy have a made a decision to do our best to help learners around the world - and just giving answers does NOT accomplish that goal. Thank you.
