These tiny loiterers on the barley's beard,

And happy units of a numerous herd

Of playfellows, the laughing Summer brings,

Mocking the sunshine on their glittering wings,

How merrily they creep, and run, and fly!

No kin they bear to labour's drudgery,

Smoothing the velvet of the pale hedge-rose;

And where they fly for dinner no one knows—

The dew-drops feed them not—they love the shine

Of noon, whose suns may bring them golden wine

All day they're playing in their Sunday dress—

When night reposes, for they can do no less;

Then, to the heath-bell's purple hood they fly,

And like to princes in their slumbers lie,

Secure from rain, and dropping dews, and all,

In silken beds and roomy painted hall.

So merrily they spend their summer-day,

Now in the corn-fields, now in the new-mown hay.

One almost fancies that such happy things,

With coloured hoods and richly burnished wings,

Are fairy folk, in splendid masquerade

Disguised, as if of mortal folk afraid,

Keeping their joyous pranks a mystery still,

Lest glaring day should do their secrets ill.

The poem First Love by John Clare is a poem about a young man who is struck by the ientnse and immense feelings of love, infatuation and other mixed feelings for the first time. In the beginning of the poem, the author explains the first moment of his awestruck love. In lines 6 to 8, the author gives us the physical effect of love. These symptoms gives to the reader that the man was physically unable to move due to the intensity of the love hitting him, leaving him paralyzed. In line 8, he explains how his environment had turn into ‘clay’. This could possibly be a metaphor on how his life is easily ‘sculpted’ or ‘modified’ by the woman he loves. Then, right after line 8, the young man has returned from his ‘dream’, and ‘blood rushed to his face’, meaning he’s starting to blush. The line, ‘ And took my eyesight quite away’ shows that he could not see anything else but her and was metaphorically blind. Unfortunately, the last 8 lines of the poem broke the feeling of love in his heart. In the last 8 lines, the author explains about how the young man has fallen back to his reality and faces the fact that the girl would not feel the same.He conveys the effect of love and shock by the usage of similes and metaphors in several lines. His other method of conveying this emotion is by rhyming and constantly ending every 2 lines with the same sound. This makes the reader feel a bit delightful and optimistic due to the melody the rhyming has created. By reusing the phrase, “I never saw so sweet a face” in the poem, the writer uses it in the beginning to give us the first impression of the girl when he first sees her and tells the reader that he still continues to think the same after he is back to reality although more on a melancholic tone. x x

Why can't an icon be set that we can view posts from the articles all at once. Thats a good suesggtion so the bloggers can collaborate with one another. I see on the left side where individuals names have been highlighted for leaving a comment which is great. How about letting us see all of the post for each article at once in a window so that we can pick and choose who we want to reply to..Thanks for listening.
