you could compare 'nettles' to 'brothers' showing the difference in relationship .

For example 'Nettles' shows a relationship between a father who is protective of his son and fears that the world will harm him in his youth on the other hand  'Brothers' there relationship is strained and awkred due to the difference in age ( boys like different things at those times e.g younger boy will want to play with action figures while the other may start to be interested in girls)

or you  could talk about 'praise song for my mother' this describes the love and how desperate the child is for her mother by doing this the poet describes essents of her that she may struggle to live without .

for example : the poet links to water which is a neccetie in life inorder to survive therefore her mother was almost compulsory for her . another view is that the ocean can be hard to measure how wide and big it is therefore maybe she was complicated and was differnt .

The poet also refers to her mum as the moon or something  creating the idea that she was her guide at night , she led her through the bad times and protected her from dangerous mistakes as the moon is white ( seen as pure) therefore without her mother she may fail to understand the difference from righy and wrong .

When descirbing the lang , there isnt any punctuation which makes it clear that she lost now without her mother as the reader is unsure as to when to pause , begin or take a break .

hoped that helped , it tested me a bit :))
