Times like These!
I think it's better than in times like these.
A poets mouth be silent for in truth
We have no gift to set a statesman right
A young girl in the indolence of her youth
Or, an old man upon a winters night.
Sarah Wright
Poem Commentary: I liked this poem because it like stood out from like all the
rest in the book because the title was Times like These, It sounded so attractive,
my favourite part of it was more or less the last line where it said Or, an old man
upon a winters night. It describes each line to make you really think about it...
And you can imagine an old man upon a winter's night like in front of the fire or in
front of the television.
I was attracted to this poem because I like times like these, they're so modern
and everything is like new, but I always liked old times better because they
sounded so much better... But I bet in olden days they wanted things to be much
better.
