Three Things To Remember Comments

Rating: 3.1
A Robin Redbreast in a cage,
Puts all Heaven in a rage.

A skylark wounded on the wing

...

William Blake

I agree and disagree! Literally, I disagree! Metaphorically, I agree very much! And William Blake being a Christian, I think he wants the reader to understand metaphorically!

ah, what a moral keep announcing its significance, as if some revelations translated. each couplet itself is very much explanatory. each like like an ocean of wisdom for those who think. God bless.

The immense value of life is expressed in these three couplets; typical of Blake. Reminded me of 'The Fly' by Blake. Short and sweet, but of immense significance. Love life, preserve life, and respect freedom of other beings.

So beautiful and tender in it's simplicity, in its defense of those fragile feathered, innocent creatures. Gave my heart a flutter

Harm to birds of beauty never brings joy to any! Wonderful message about the beauty of freedom metaphorically through birds in Nature by Blake is beautiful read and muse!

Three Things Not to Forget A ground up cow tastes like good fun when cooked and served upon a bun. Some strips of pig will make you beg for more beside a chicken egg. A turkey, well, is quite a beast carved up on one’s Thanksgiving feast.

Tre cose da ricordare Un pettirosso in una gabbia, Mette tutto il Paradiso nella rabbia. Un'allodola ferita sull'ala Non fa cessare di cantare un cherubino. Chiunque farà male al piccolo scricciolo Mai sarà amato dall'uomo. Translation by Andrea Alfani

Six simple lines to help us remember how humanity works. No good can come of those who do ill. Very well done, complex enough not to insult the intelligent yet a good way of getting tweeners to understand a concept of life.

this poem points out just how important it is to value the simple things in life. Care for all things, treat them as the wonderful creations that they are. Only through seeing and acknowledging the inherent value of every living creature will we ever attain not only acceptance from man, but acceptance in the eyes of God the creator.
