LAURA MILENA PEREZ AFRICANO – FINAL PROJECT ENGLISH
by: Alice Cary (1820-1871)

Backward ere it rise and break,
Only for poor pity's sake!

Give me of your smiles one smile,
Backward roll this tide of grief
Just a moment,though, the while,

Tell me how you sit and weave
Dreams about me, though I know
It is only make believe!Just a moment, though 'tis plain
You are jesting with my pain.

In wise majestic melancholy train,
And watch the moon, and the still-raging seas,
And men, coming and going on the earth.

“Some pause in their grave wandering comrade less,
And turn with profound gesture vague andslow,
As who would pray good for the world, but know
Their benediction empty as they bless.”
Imagery: Unquestionably in “Clouds” the first part the language can transport to the image for theauthor. He said: “Down the blue night...” right there we imagine the blue night with the other parts of the poetry. This is an example of “imagery”
Metaphor: I think that in all poetry...
