These two poems go well together because they are both based on a realistic view on life, they both show the way people will shield their loved ones from the unseen pain and unhappiness of the unknown future. The line “My son would often feel sharp wounds again” from ‘Nettles’ shows that no matter how much a parent tries to protect their child they will get hurt. This is also portrayed in ‘Born yesterday’ when it says “tightly-folded bud” this indicates that although the child may be young and unable to defend for herself her loved ones will try and protect her, however soon they won’t be there to protect her and she will be left to defend for herself.
