“I will grandfather, and,” he reassured, “I will tell any and all that will listen to try and make the tribe see that the raven is not cursed.” “Thank you Sacred Meadows. You have given me great joy in knowing that. Now you must hurry back home, before Morning Wolf spreads more of his ignorance,” Painted Raven chuckled and hugged his grandson goodbye. As soon as Sacred Meadows left, Painted Raven closed the door and looked out the window. In the sky he saw a few ravens flying high in the sky.
The Yearling, by Marjorie Rawlings, illustrates how Jody's sense of responsibility helped him to resolve his conflict between meeting his own need to raise the fawn and meeting his family's need for survival. Jody enjoyed the responsibilities of raising the fawn. Jody went looking for moss, grass, and leaves to make a bed for the fawn the first night he got him. Jody liked to go on walks with the fawn especially at morning when there was still dew on the grass and trees. He also liked to sit with Flag holding him and tell him about his day, his adventures, everything.
John James Audubon and Annie Dillard both wrote short passages describing large flocks of birds using vivid imagery and descriptive diction to convey the effect that the flocks had on them as an observer. Both passages have an awed and laudatory tone since the writers seem to be enchanted by the beauty o the birds. While Audubon gives a literal description of what he saw, Dillard describes the birds through the extensive use of figurative language. The descriptive diction in both passages serves to give the reader a mental image of what the writer saw as the birds flew by. Audubon uses phrases like “countless multitudes” and “immense legions” to describe the large amount of birds that he watched fill the sky.

The cartoon “Scenic Drive” by R.Cobb also exceedingly explores distinctive experiences in nature. We first gain the idea of nature in “Nesting Time” at the very beginning of the poem with the quote “Charming utterly disarming little bird” L2.Stewart describes the bird in behavioural terms and with the lack of commas used in the quote emphasizes the impression the bird has already left on the man and his daughter. The opening lines of “The Moths” which is “Such a blaze of snow, such a smoke of sleet, such a fume of moths in the air” however makes use of a recurring language pattern by the repetition of the phrase “Such a” to effectively illustrate the ‘snow’ and ‘sleet’ and as well as ‘fume of moths’ as it helps to capture the visual characteristics and features of nature. We gain an image of the shades of colour of the moths ‘snow-white’ as they blurring move and flicker in the light, moving as one massive unit through the air. Stewart brilliantly demonstrates the moths movements as the mass of moths move like a ‘wind’, assuming the colour of ‘dusk’ and enveloping the foliage and blossoms.
Kinsley Kelso Professor Roberts ENG 102 12 April 2015 Symbolism Of A Parrot In the story, by Robert Butler, “Jealous Husband Returns in Form of a Parrot,” the point of view of the parrot helps to strengthen the themes and symbols within the story. He experiences the loss of almost all words and closure with his wife. Irony is presented throughout the story in the series of events.

“The Lanyard” Analysis “The Lanyard” by Billy Collins, is a poem about a grown man who flashbacks to the day he braided a lanyard for his mother at a camp thinking that making something for his mother will make her happy. Collins uses imagery and tone to illustrate that nothing in this world is enough to repay one’s mother for all that she’s done, but showing one’s love for her will bring joy and laughter into her life. A poetic device Collins utilizes in this poem is imagery. One very good example is when he was thinking about the day at camp. “The other day I was ricocheting slowly off the blue walls of this room, moving as if underwater from type write to piano, from bookshelf to an envelope lying on the floor” (lines 1-4).
Singing songs of revelation the birds chirp and chatter happily once again on the tree branches, A look upward reveals beautiful baby blue skies with puffy cream filled donut clouds waiting for all to enjoy. Sounds of life once again begin to be heard. Neighborhood dogs chase each other playfully around the yards and bark loudly for all to hear at the stray rabbit who happens out of the tall fields and into the short grass of the homeowners. Quickly hopping back to the safety of the shrubbery of the field, the rabbit escapes the chaotic noise. Just like the barking dogs, it is hard not to shout for joy when you accomplish something great.
