Robert Burns

O my Luve is like a red, red rose

That’s newly sprung in June;

O my Luve is like the melody

That’s sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,

So deep in luve am I;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;

I will love thee still, my dear,

While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only luve!

And fare thee weel awhile!

And I will come again, my luve,

Though it were ten thousand mile.

A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns is a unique free verse poem. The author used the poem to express his yearn towards a woman. There were only two people in this poem, the author himself and the woman he’s in love with. There’s no truth in the story, however he used modified scenes comparing to his situation, at line eight, nine and ten.“Till a’ the seas gang dry. Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear, and the rocks melt wi’ the sun.” There were no events happening in the story, just a man expressing his feeling when he’s in love. The main object was a rose, you can know it by the title of the poem, and the text where the author was comparing her love one to rose. The author seemed to be addicted to love, or strongly affected by it, and you can know it by the tone of the poem.

There are many literary features in the poem, perhaps one of the most symbolic ones are simile and hyperbole. “O my Luve is like a red, red rose” This is a simile used in the first verse of the poem, it is effective because he compared the woman’s beauty to a rose. Another simile is used “O my Luve is like the melody, that’s sweetly played in tune.” the author is comparing her love to a melody, a melody usually makes people joyful, so his love is making him joyful whenever she is beside him. Hyperbole can be found at the last sentence “And I will come again, my luve,

Though it were ten thousand mile.” Ten thousand miles is really hard to travel, but this is effective because it shows how much the author misses and loves her.


Walt Whitman

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,

Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,

The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,

The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,

The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,

The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,

The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,

The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,

Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,

The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,

Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.

I hear from America Singing by Walt Whitman is a free verse poem. The author shows the life of the labor workers. The workers in America were all working and singing together to achieve their common goal. In my opinion this poem has a deeper meaning to it, everyday on news it’s all violence, stocks, and finance. Whitman was trying to alert how people was distracted, and lost their original pure personality. As you can see the events happening in the story, each type of worker were singing their own song, by looking at the last line, “singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.”The poem singing sons mean they were cheerful, and contented in life.

There are no literary terms used in this poem, but this song will be more effective without literary devices. Whitman hopes this poem to be pure and original, so he didn’t adding any literary devices. Even though this poem is not written with any poetic devices, it’s still beautiful written.

Burns' poem is not free verse. It is full of truth. You cannot always tell a poem by its title. Robert Burns is a man. One poem does not an addiction make. Hyperbole can be found elsewhere besides the last verse.

All of Whitman's poem is a literary device. No one is singing.
whitman uses repetition, parallelism and catalogs poetic devices in his poem. re write your paragraphs its all wrong. STUDY
