Stanza 2 tree./none assist the comparison of concealed wrath to that of nurturing a plant. both the first and third choices above What happens when anger is expressed? Keep in mind i did this kind of in a hurry though, and i am undecided on a few of the answers; perhaps a 2nd opinion would be nice
@kym02 what do you think the answers to those 10 questions are just to check my work please?
its correct but you might want to look up poetry websites such as poemhunter.com or studynotes.com. There, you will get detailed information for each stanza. ok?
i think instead of tree its sky
well check out those websites mentioned. But be careful i think its tree. Those literary devices that the persona uses are very tricky and may change your point of view! in poems some things are not what they seem to be. ok?
it was sky and i put tree cause you told me and got it wrong :(
oh crap! i asked my brother !and thats what he told me! you cant even trust people these days! sorry! if i did the poem before i would have helped you without asking anyone:(
