    MOTEL POOL P.K. Page The plump good-natured children play in the blue pool: roll and plop, plop and roll; slide and tumble, oiled, in the slippery sun silent as otters, turning over and in, churning the water; or-seamstresses-cut and sew with jackknives its satins invisibly. Not beautiful, but suddenly limned with light their elliptical wet flesh in a flash reflects it and it greens the green grass, greens the hanging leaf greens Adam and Eden, greens little Eve.

    what do you think about the poem? what image do you see when you read the poem, and how is it different from someone's average/normal day?

    PK Page Use of Imagery and Symbols in the "Motel Pool" The page uses literal imagery to set the scene of the poem. We have an immediate image of typical, everyday children romping in a pool—invoked by direct, descriptive language. “slide and tumble, oiled, in the slippery sun; silent as otters, turning over and in,” The use of figurative imagery in the form of simile allows the reader to be brought out of the everyday and into a new, more compelling image. “churning the water; or-seamstresses-cut and sew with jackknives its satins invisibly.” With the introduction of symbolism, we get dragged further from the everyday. The metaphor of the children being seamstresses, though figurative imagery in itself, also symbolizes the innocence of children and how they are not aware of their effect on the world around them. It also symbolizes the selfishness, the thoughtlessness of humankind, as the seamstresses use jackknives on a very delicate fabric. “Not beautiful, but suddenly limned with light; their elliptical wet flesh in a flash reflects it” Then we have literal imagery paired with symbolism. We see the children shining, reflecting the rays of the sun. And after reading the last line, it becomes clear that the sun symbolizes God. The children are not beautiful because they are only reflecting the beauty of God.

    Identify your poem and attach your 200 word comment regarding its use of imagery or symbolism to transform the everyday into something unique.

    I think you did a good job. If you are submitting this, I would separate each new idea into its own paragraph to make it easier to see what you are talking about in each part of your analysis. Also I would include a paragraph (2-3 lines) summarizing what your overall impression of the author is trying to convey with their use of symbolism.

    I can't write one for you but it should tie in the general idea that you are getting from each section of the poem. My impression is that the author is portraying young children as dough, "plop and roll", they are easily molded by the situations around them and will eventually be placed into permanent shapes. But for now, they are young and innocent, still reflecting the goodness of their maker, unspoiled by the machinations of the world.

    But that is my personal impression, and each time I read it I change my mind a little bit so definitely use your own understanding of the general meaning of the poem and how it relates to making normal things (children playing in a pool) have added meaning.
