She is so lying how can u be happy that all ur st00fs is burned by a fire.
Its just for the poem that she is writing must be sum tipe of writing mqgic
mojo or metaphorical junk that gets all different types of translations
when it really doesnn mean anyhing she just trying o confuse people. Rate

we r analyzing this poem in my ap english class...we thought that she
although she says she sees God in her burning house, she is angry and
wishes the event never happend. It is true that some critics insist that
she is not being honest in the poem. It's up to you whether you believe it
or not!

After Katrina, I had my 10th grade students read this poem in class. How
amazing that it is still relevent today. When all of Anne's things were
taken by fire, she thanked God for her life and looked forward to life in
eternity with her Savior. So many people onthe Gulf Coast are in her same
position. I hope they can be as optimistic as Anne was.
