Here is the poem to study for Week3. It is closely related to the assignment for Week3. All members are advised to study it before proceeding to attack the assignment.


I WISH - Christina Rossetti

I wish I could remember that first day,
First hour, first moment of your meeting me,
If bright or dim the season, it might be
Summer or Winter for aught I can say;
So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and to foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree
That would not blossom yet for many a May.
If only I could recollect it, such
A day of days! I let it come and go
As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
If only now I could recall that touch,
First touch of hand in hand – Did one but know!

Christina Rossetti

Joseph I'm sorry but I didn't choose the poem. The President and/or the patrons did. I can't change it.

In the poem,Maya Angelou is comparing between two things, a caged bird and a free bird. A comparison between two things is all they want from us in the assignment.
