This just really makes me laugh. Maybe it's just my mind set. The poem doesn't really jump out at me beyond that because I'm a big country fan. I listen to a lot of songs and there's one that popped into my mind web I read the poem.

'Man! I feel like a woman' by Shania Twain.

It's a song about being a woman and the things that make her happy. It's a catchy song that I heard when I was younger. Ever since I've enjoyed this song. But it was more for this poem.

It was a declaration of who she was. She was a woman, and a wife. But none the less the short poems doesn't have type of similarities as the song. It was just something that popped into my head as I read the poem.


Edgar Allen Poe's poems are so creepy and dark. I really feel as if a lot of them are all about death. Of course I've only read like two or three but all three have been dark and depressing. I'm no a person for dark and demented poems. Actually I enjoy the bright and joyful ones about nature and love. I might be a romantic because of that but I really don't care. I know what I like.

The Raven is one that I know a lot. While working at Halloween City I heard it many times a day so it really just stuck in my head for the most part. Despite it being such a dark poem I had to laugh at it because of the dramatics that were placed in it. Like everything else I read, I was picturing it. I pictured a crazed man and a talking Raven. I probably put more detail into it then what was really suppose to be in there.

It was kind of the same with the Cask of Amontillado. I was picturing the entire thing. When they walked into the wine cellar, I really thought of dungeons and skeletons. I really just mentally added silly things that weren't in the poem. Like their clothes. I pictured them in bright, flambouyant clothes. The drunk was giggling continuously so it was funny for me to keep reading it.

Needless to say, I have a over active imagination.

No Name Poems

I've found I have a big beef against the authors who don't name their poems. It absolutely drives me nuts. Does it bug anyone else?

As I was reading through Emily's poems I couldn't help but shake my head. Why couldn't she take the time to name them. They were each wrote for a reason. The both meant something so why not give t a name.

Numbers I feel do not do the poems justice. It makes me feel as if they just don't matter then. And the fact that hers has two different numbers, the one the book gives and another, makes it even more confusing. Why have two different numbers as titles for one poem? It just doesn't make sense.

They deserve a name. As a writer I like being able to name everything I have. I feel as if they deserve it. I worked hard on them and while they may not be perfect, it's something I created. You don't see people with multiple children give their kids numbers for names. I know that was a bad comparison but it also makes sense as well. Both are creations that someone should be proud of. Not simply given a number and stuck to the side.
