Homework Help: Literature

Posted by mysterychicken on Wednesday, December 2, 2009 at 4:07pm.

'Explain how people can find miracles in everyday life. Support your ideas with examples from the poems 'in Just' and 'Daily'. This is what I got- is it OK?

The greatest miracle above all is life itself, and the many wonderful things we find in it. Even the smallest pleasures can be considered miracles. For example, in the poem “in Just” by E. E. Cummings, the brilliant atmosphere of spring is described with words that aren’t real but show a colorful meaning. It describes how children hopscotch and jump rope, dance and whistle. Happiness is magnificent and the vivid colors of spring are breathtaking.
In the poem “Daily” by Naomi Shihab Nye, she describes images that appear in her everyday life but reveals her amazement by comparing the simple things to awe-inspiring ones. This poem lets us know that everything in our life is great, whether it’s planting seeds, folding shirts, or slicing tortillas and frying chips.

Thanks
