saying you truly can be happy..

Miracle Ice Cream by Adrienne Rich is a poem that describes an ice cream
truck and a woman serving ice cream. This short but sweet poem uses very
descriptive sensory imagery to describe the ice cream truck driving through
a small residential area. Almost everyone gets the same scene in their mind
of children chasing the ice cream truck down the street while the little
jingle is playing out of speakers on the top on the truck. Another poetic
device used in this poem is a simile “Scott Joplin ragtime strewn behind it
like pearls,” This clever simile compares the ragtime music being played
out of the truck as being strewn behind it like pearls. I think this
description gives a great picture and sound in your head so you can feel
like you can really hear the music.
