This precious book of love, this unbound lover, To beautify him only lacks a cover. The fish lives in the sea, and ’tis much pride For fair without the fair within to hide.

LADY CAPULET (to JULIET) What do you say?

Both titles serve as a strong beginning for the exploration of aspects of the natural world by effectively introducing the reader to the thoughts and feelings of the poets about the theme.
I continued to cast at the bank making long cast for a deeper run of the crank bait. “Get the net” as I set the hook on a nice fish that seemed was going to be a problem since this was my first time actually catching a fish out of a boat. As the fish jumped a couple times out of the water trying to throw the crank bait my partner says “Nice fish” as he nets the fish and lets me know it is about the same size he caught.

Compare and Contrast Essay The short stories, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge(OCB) and A White Heron, have many differences and few similarities.
