    • Personal response
      • Midas's gift became a curse to him. Does this affect what you think about the poem? Yes it may mean it is perfect while it lasts, but it will end badly.
      • Why do you think the poet uses personification in the poem? He personifies time to show how they want it to last forever.
      • Why do you think the poet wrote this as a form of sonnet? It is a love poem thereofre wrote it in the structure of a love song
    • Feelings and attitudes
      • Cherishing the moment- love is felt to be precious and valuble
      • Strong belief- The poem expresses faith that love isn't bound by time
      • Physical pleasure- love isn't just the idealised, pure devotion of some traditional poems, but also the real and physical- like lying in a ditch kissing.
