microscopeCompose a paragraph (approximately two hundred words) that explains how two of the four recommended poems, listed below, share a common thought, feeling or experience.  What is the overlapping idea, emotion or experience?  How do the two poems treat this subject differently from each other?

Compose the paragraph on your laptop.  You need not email it to me, or post it on your blog.  Simply have it ready to go by the start of class.
