The winds of heaven mix forever

    The first paragraph is better and more meaningful than the second. A shifting rhyme scheme fits nicely with this one and gives the reader pause making them think more deeply on the poets words. It just seems sweet and lacks giving the reader much emotion of their own. The poet seems to imply that him and his love are apart but never identifies with what is causing the separation. Humans tend to hold onto anger. Keeping that fact in mind, to make this poem stronger would be to place blame on someone for keeping the lovers apart. This would allow the reader to get involved with the story and create true emotion that would last longer and help them give the poem a significant place in their minds. (Report) Reply

    But we have learnt to build walls, dams to prevent rivers from flowing, boundaries with mines on no mans land to prevent men or beasts from crossing over and some day we will also prevent winds from blowing freely as divine love no longer exists on this planet (Report) Reply

    Shelley deems it very necessary for one to sincerely love his or neighbour. For if inanimate interact in such a lovely manner, how much more man? Whosoever hates his fellow man should be hung a millstone and thrown into the sea. Shelley is also revealing that no man is an island, as well as every other creatures in life.. This poem is quite amazing. Cheers! (Report) Reply
