in the poem "The Oft-Repeated Dream" by Robert Frost, he uses
personification to give the tree life like characteristics. In the poem
only one of the two children is afraid of the tree but it is in her dream.
She thinks the tree is trying to open the latch to the window of the room
where it can get in. He uses simile when he compares the tree to a little
bird at the window sill staring at the mystery of the glass.

in the poem "Chicago" by Carl Sandburg, Sandburg illustrates all the bad
things and flaws of the city chicago. He tells of how the city is
corrupted simply because it is full of corrupted people. There are
prostitutes luring the simple minded farm boys and there are gangsters
getting away free with murder. He tells about how chicago is far from a
Utopia which is the generalization that everyone has when they go there.
People think that because it is such a big business and it is the meat
packing industry of the world so everyone has the idea that it is the city
of opportunity. Carl Sandburg shows people through the poem what Chicago
really is.

"Chicago" by Carl Sandberg demonstrates Sandberg's respect and possible
fear of the city of Chicago. His use of apostrophe in this poem really
brings it to life. The use of adjectives also creates strong imagery and
reflection of Sandberg's outlook on the city.

The poem "I Carry Your Heart" by e.e. Cummings is short but sweet. It
expresses his deep love for someone or something. The Last stanza and the
last line rhyme. This creates an emphasis on the end of the poem, which in
my opinion, is the most important part of the masterpiece.

The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost is a poem that consists of strong
imagery and interesting diction. It ties in nature with individuality.
When Frost states that he took the road less traveled it reflects his
thoughts of individuality. Frost thinks that those who choose their own
path and are not swayed by the decisions of others are the most successful.

The poem "i carry your heart with me" by E.E. Cummings is saying how much
someone cares for someone and that they can't be without that person and
care very much for them. No matter where they are they will always be with
him because, he carries thoughts of that person with him all the time.

The poem "Fire and Ice" by Robert Frost seems like the author has a lot of
mixed feelings and doesn't know what he wants to say. In this poem I think
he is trying to say that there are some mean people in the world who would
be like fire and the nice people would be like ice. So he is hoping the
world will end in ice.

The poem "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost seems like a confused person
to me. Saying that he does not know which road to take, or what is best for
him. I think this poem can apply to a lot of people and how they feel about
life never knowing which way is good for them.

I believe that this poem is all about making life choices. I also believe
that when Frost was writting this poem "The Road Not Taken" he means the
road or choice that most people dont take when making choices. The road
that nobody takes is the road that most people wish they could have taken.
