Jody enjoys having Billy because he teaches Jody how to care for and train the pony, and most importantly, listens to and does whatever Jody says. In addition, Billy tells Jody many things about horses. For example, he explains that “they were terribly afraid for their feet, so that one must make a practice of lifting the legs and patting the hoofs and ankles to remove their terror” (15). This example shows that Billy knows a lot about horses, and Jody starts to gain a lot of trust in Billy, even with his pony’s life. One day, Jody worries about possible rain and tells his feelings to Billy, who guarantees him that it won’t rain.
There are various symbols in the play which represents the feelings and moods through out the play. One main symbol which re occurs through out the play is the rose. The rose appears in different scenes giving a meaning which is the ability to survive and grow, giving us beauty. As I read the play and observed the use of the symbol, I found the use of the rose was a beautiful symbol as it represented hope of beauty in the future. An example of the rose appearing is when Hamid returns home and begins to pull the roses out from the garden, but then is stopped by Amir.
O’Brien begins to presents these items when he says, “First Lieutenant Jimmy Cross carried letters from a girl named Martha.” In this instance, he formulates that Lieutenant Jimmy Cross loves having romantic trips with Martha and his plans will involve Martha if he was not present in the war because he loves her. Again, O’Brien uses repetition with the word “carried” to emphasize how significant the items are to their daily life. This demonstrates to the audience what the objects they carry represent and how the lives of the soldiers are different within and outside the war. O’Brien shifts his essay by using pathos to portray the humanity of the soldiers in the war. O’Brien begins to present feelings of sympathy when O’Brien dubs the soldiers with, “They were called legs or grunts.” O’Brien signifies that the soldiers' value in the war is to move objects which removes the humanity away from the soldiers.
The use of the words ‘green’, ‘pastels’ and ‘first kittens, first love’ also portrays new life that is created through the process of haymaking and the pleasant memories that can bring from working. The use of positive imagery and a subsequent sense of enjoyment in work is also explored in A.B. Paterson’s poem ‘Shearing at Castlereagh’ through the use of words such as ‘merry’ and ‘golden’, revealing that work can be a happy experience if the worker has a sense of pride in their job. These two poems differ greatly to William Blake’s poem ‘The Chimney Sweeper’, which looks upon work in a much more negative approach. The poem as a whole explores how work exploits and oppresses the innocence of the chimney sweepers.

This shows that those people lacked farsightedness about the importance of Christ's birth. In the course of a journey, they saw a temperate valley with natural vegetation and beauty which lessened their tiredness. This is full of nature description and proves that Eliot was a nature poet also. The sounds of the stream and water-mill and smell of vegetation were very pleasant to the Magi and the readers. The white horse galloped in the meadow is also very symbolic and it points out the speed of the horse with his rider.
Harwood identifies memory as a key component of human experiences through the use of ‘The Violets’ as an extended metaphor to trigger the composer’s personal recollections. Traditionally associated with death and mourning, the imagery of the “frail melancholy flowers” are alliterated and personified to emulate Harwood’s connection to the past and the loss of childhood joyfulness. This is enhanced by the juxtaposition of “ashes and loam”, the flowers are paradoxically growing among fertile and barren soil, relating to the past thriving through memories and the present time. The structural indentation indicating time shifts throughout Harwood’s flashbacks create a realm of nostalgia and is reinforced by the change in verbal tense “I kneel to pick” and “be comforted”, it accentuates our understanding of the evocativeness of the recalling of memories.

The horse was very majestic with his dark chocolate body, his jet black mane, large brown eyes, and his white socks. Arnold told me to always be gentle but firm when handling these beautiful beasts. Because they can be calm easy going, but at any given time they could be scared and that’s when you can get hurt. Arnold and I would ride horses and get the chores done and at the end of the day he would enlighten me with his knowledge from his experiences. I would listen and think about how I should live my life and try to make better
