i found this one in another question someone else asked but i dont understand the understatement in it This Is Just To Say by William Carlos Williams I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold
I have a rendezvous with Death, At some deserted barricade, When Spring comes back with rustling shade And apple-blossoms fill the air— I have a rendezvous with Death When Spring brings back blue days and fair. It may be he shall take my hand And lead me into his dark land And close my eyes and quench my breath— It may be I shall pass him still. I have a rendezvous with Death On some scarred slope of battered hill, When Spring comes round again this year And the first meadow-flowers appear. God knows 'twere better to be deep Pillowed in silk and scented down, Where love throbs out in blissful sleep, Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath, Where hushed awakenings are dear... But I've a rendezvous with Death At midnight in some flaming town, When Spring trips north again this year, And I to my pledged word am true, I shall not fail that rendezvous. -by Alan Seeger The poem treats of the coming of death as just another meeting, one definitely to be kept, but like many others, by comparing it to normal human activities. Can you see the different ways that understatement is used? The inevitability, the seriousness, the potential of unforeseen pain, the irrevocableness of death are all hinted at but only quietly.
thanks for the help but i already turned in the assignment and i forgot to close the question
