This is another beautiful poem by Mrs. Parker. It is really sad that it has
been taken off this website due to copyright infringement. I will bet that
the owner of the copyright today, 40 years after her death, and 87 years
since the poem was written, is totally unrelated to Mrs. Parker or the
poem. It is sad that some people are preventing her poems from being
distributed and enjoyed for their own selfish monetary gain. I bet that she
would not have appreciated that

I myself as a poet can relate to what the author is trying to say it really
is understandable and interesting

Well this poem reminded me so much of my sister becuase her best freind in
the whole wide world died on her birth-day... December 7,2004 her name was
Stacy Mann she died because she was on drug's like Speed was the main thing
the people who gave it to her hated her guts and she over dost with it and
her heart like blew up and My sister and I went to her Funeral and went to
her Bareall and her freinds and every one was giving speeches, my sister
and I wasnt sure if she went to Heavan or not and this one girl said that
she wouldn't ever forgit the time when she got saved so now we know
and if I understud this peom correctly then this is what it reminded me of
sence that happend my sister has went to church with her husband and her 7
and a half year old Babie has not missed one day of church!!! I really like
the peom...

Parker's ability in creating nostalgic atmosphere is outstanding.She uses
auditory and imaginative devices to suggest the nostalgia of the current
time. Parker exerts the colours as tools for depicting both abstract and
concrete situations ( like Gray for dismal days or attitudes)
Parker's poetry is a combination of some manifestations, like significance
of religous tendencies and dreary times.And this point is clear in Prayer
for a Prayer.
