The poem has vivid and colorful imagery. And the diction is simple and
comprehensible. When the gold wave is mentioned I get a beautiful picture
of the sun. This free verse poem is really good also because of the
figurative language within its context.

If there are other words to describe the sky like this, they are no longer
needed. This is truly a masterpiece.

I am doing a project for literature and i don't understand most of these
poems. But this one I understand perfectly, Whenever I am looking at the
sky I always think of it as a perfect painting and this and this poem
explains my idea perfectly.

I am doing this for a project and was having a hard time knowing what to

wrote on this poem.
