By referring to birds it perhaps shows that they are trying to get ‘free’ and ‘fly’ away. This is shown in using words such as: “Let us away”, “Flutter’d” and “They glide…”.

Keats uses dialogue to tell the story, by using dialogue it allows the reader to connect more with the characters and give the story more realism.
"The grasses sway their tall spears; the white butterflies flutter around and float on the warm wind of the late summer." (pg 9) As the quote seems to imply, it is showing the current mood and state of Paul which, in context is a peaceful and tranquil one. It also shows his innocence to the horrors of war.

Gwen Hardwood The emotive qualities of Gwen Harwood’s poetry resonate with her readers. She uses her own memories to illustrate love for her family, her loss of innocence and the swiftness of time passing. She demonstrates this in her poems Father and Child, The Violets and At Mornington. The poem The Violets opens with the line “It is dusk and cold,” the time of day symbolising that this persona has reached old age and is metaphorically drawing closer to nightfall or the end of her days. Death is made apparent with the negative adjective “cold.” The flowers she is picking at the beginning of this poem are clearly what stimulate her memory of childhood as they are referenced later in the poem.

In the street below a peddler was crying his wares. The notes of a distant song which some one was singing reached her faintly, and countless sparrows were twittering in the eaves. Spring signifies the start of life anew, which is what she faces now. Rain feeds new growth; the peddler is independent; and birdsong is often characterized by feelings of lightness and buoyancy. Louise’s name is only mentioned at the end of the story, when her sister Josephine begs of her to open the door to her room.
Despite her uneventful life on the farm and her parents being financially burdened after the Depression, something as simple as a circus poster was enough to stir up her vast imagination with all the possibilities that could be. At first Jenny was full of hope, thinking of a world she had never experienced before, one that would fill her life with happiness and hope for the future. Her attitude went from positive to puzzled after her parents' outlook on her life was nothing but bitter and discouraging for the eleven year old. Even though her mother says there's “nothing ahead of her but chickens and cows,” Jenny knows she can achieve higher than that. She was not conquered by the lack of her family's money or the words spoken by her parents; she continued to dream by going to the barn with the poster in hand to attend her own circus.
This interpretation was deep, because as I was reading, I could imagine how she was feeling and how they related it to the way the child cries itself to sleep.
