Robert E. Hayden’s “Those Winter Sundays” is a short lyric poem that grasps a personal story of the relationship between a father and son. The son, who at the time could not perceive his father’s subtle expressions of love, never returned them. The first stanza starts off with a simple line that denotes the tone that the poem will pursue. The notion of “early morning” adds to the silent coldness of the title “Winter Sundays.” The author’s choice of incorporating “Sunday” into the poem initiates a more religious perspective as well. Sundays are religiously known to be a holy day of leisure, and his father got up on Sundays too shows the devotion he put forth into tending to his family.

The two dogs represent good and evil, God and Satan, and their never-ending fight over an individual's soul. My father seems to have really taken this to heart as he mentioned it several times throughout our two hour conversation this evening. It seems that my dad has not put too much thought into day-to-day ethical thinking, but does try to live his life as God would expect him to.
Differences between Hinduism and Islam – Worship and Rituals Malinda Hersey April 13, 2008 “Just before dawn breaks in India, a householder rises and purifies himself with water. He then stirs back to life the embers of the sacred household fire while chanting sacred verses. Raising his arms to the rising sun, he recites a prayer to the sun-god from the most ancient scripture, the Rig-Veda. This ritual, the Agnithotra, has been preformed continually in India for more than 3,000 years.” In another part of the world, just before sunrise, a man prepares for his first of five daily prayers. He reaches for his mat and places it on the ground facing in the direction of Mecca, a town that holds the stone house called Ka’ba.
