The phrase "twice shy" seems to have been taken from the age-old proverb Once bitten, twice shy, and we are consequently led to expect that the characters in the poem have had a bitter experience in the past and are now attempting to recoup. The phrase is such an appropriate expression to describe the tumultuous feelings, emotions and attitudes that run through the mind of an adolescent in love. The central idea behind the poem is simple: a girl and a boy, presumably adolescents, go out for a walk on a cool, spring evening. However, their good upbringing forces them to move cautiously, to "preserve classic decorum" and to abstain from publishing feeling. Heaney masterfully intertwines the poetic elements of time and setting to provide an accurate description of the characters' thoughts.
He reinvents the idea of the child and creates it to be a concept that is essential to harbor throughout one’s journey through adulthood. Everyone possess an inner child. Lewis is able to support that through his older characters in his novels such as Peter, Susan, and the Professor. Peter and Susan for instance are disbelieving of Lucy’s tales of Narnia, claiming that they are lies and hoaxes. Peter and Susan represent the transition from child to adult.

I think Proust was able to accomplish this as he put himself in the shoes of himself as a boy, enough to remember how much he longed for his mother’s good night kiss in ‘Overture’. (1) In À la recherché du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time), Marcel Proust has explored a lot of themes such as time and memory particularly in the first volume: Swann’s Way. Time is the way our senses make us feel, the flow of what has already happened. The past, present and future are our experiences of time. We live in the present but we are aware of what has already happened in the past and we have an idea of what might happen in the future.
Alternatively, the use of ‘sweetshop’ could be a reference to the different colours and options that would ultimately satisfy a child’s cravings. The use of the pronoun ‘You’ in order to address the reader suggests that this experience is a universal experience. Alternatively, the use of ‘You’ also involves the reader and draws them in. The use of ‘Travel up the Blue Nile’ hints at the feeling that almost anything is possible when you are a child, alluding to the aspirations and child like imagination that is lost as an adult. This is further enforced by the use ‘could’ suggesting that imagination is a thing of the past.
The following verses are written in the past tense as it is accompanied by phrases such as “as I remember, “ten years ago” and “ I bought you…” These allow the reader to look behind and experience the same nostalgic trance as the speaker. The shift in tense transports both the speaker and the reader to a different realm that is blurry and separate from real time—a daydream. The sandwiching of this memory by verses written in the present tense even more so isolates the speaker’s visions and disconnects them from reality. Baez’s ability to artistically arrange the text creates chronological flow and positioning that contributes to the overall effect and message of the story. Repetition is used to

Despite it's importance, the sailor men and the Mariner continue to "slay the bird" with the last four lines of repetition being, "Then all averred". Not only is parallelism portrayed, but it conveys the ignorance of man in that we have became exclusively concerned about ourselves and disregard the creations God and nature brought forth. In addition, the albatross becomes the defining symbol of the Mariner's big mistake. As a symbol of the burden of sin, it is compared explicitly to the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified. The Mariner now realizes the trouble he has brought upon himself, yet his incapability to speak does not give him the chance to pray out loud.
