The poet uses lots of effective personification in the second verse as he tries to make the area surrounding the women seem as if they are watching them like an audience. Scannell says: “Above them soft green applause Of leaves acknowledge their laughter” He makes the trees out to be watching them like an audience watching a play or a movie, applauding the women’s happiness as if they approve their performance.

I believe the author’s point of this story was to make the readers value their culture and traditions of their family and to understand how meaningful it is. In the beginning of the story, we are introduced to the older sister, Dee. "Dress down to the ground, in the hot weather.
