My poem bases in Orange Juice

In our writing and speaking class, we read a poem called “Orange Juice” where someones steals the voice’s juice. Then, we had to do a poem from te thief’s perspective.  I did it with Lola Villegas and here is our poem:

Sometime ago,
I got unemployed.
I used to be wealthy,
But now everything is gone.
one Monday morning,
I was walking down the street
when I saw a carton of orange juice
right in front of me.
I could not resist.
I didn’t have money,
my family was starving
and the opportunity was right beside me.
I took the juice to my family
and we drank it happily.
So on Wednesday morning
I did the same thing.
I did not care about the person who bought it,
I was very thankful
And he didn’t even noticed
when I stole it on Friday.
when I poured the juice in glasses
and emptied it to the bottom,
I started screaming
because my mouth was on fire.
auch! auch!
we couldn’t feel our mouth.
I couldn’t believe
that the previous owner
had played such a cruel prank on us.
Such a lot of money the had
and they couldn’t even give up
some simple orange juice
for us to drunk up.
After that day,
I never stole juice
from that house again.
Guess the man
was now happy,
to have his juice again
and we were left with no food
for us to feed ourselves.

Then, we recorded in a voicethread:

Essay The Clod and the Pebble, Love (III)

The poem “Love (III)” by George Herbert and the poem “The Clod and the Pebble” by William Blake deal with love. In these two poems love is expressed in two different ways. In the following essay this ideas will be discussed.

“The Clod and the Pebble” handle earthly love, and show two different points of view about it. On one hand, the Clod talks about his experience of love. For the Clod, “Love Seeketh not itself to please” meaning that love is not selfish, love is generous. Moreover, the Clod mentions “And builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair”. This metaphor shows that for the Clod love is happy and help you to take worries out.
On the other hand, the Pebble gives a completely different point of view: “Love seeketh only itself to please” By saying this, he shows that love is selfish, a horrible thing that doesn’t give you pleasure. In addition, the metaphor “And builds a Hell in Heaven’s despite” meaning that love is an awful thing and make you suffer all the time.

The poem Love (III) by George Herbert tackles secular love. This poem is also a conversation, but in this case, between a man and Love, a personification of God. This man believes that he doesn’t deserve God’s love because he is a sinner. “Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back” God is trying to explain to him that everybody deserves his love, even sinners. “Who bore the blame” With this quote God shows that everybody is worthy of his love, that everyone commit sins so who’s to blame? In the end, the man accepts God’s love and through this metaphor “So I did sit and eat” this man finally accept to be forgiven.

In conclusion, these two poems handle love, but with different points of view about it.
