    I need help on figuring out the type of poem and developing a theme and meaning the themes/meaning is confusing me on some of them

    “No, Thank You, John”


    I never said I loved you, John:
    Why will you tease me day by day,
    And wax a weariness to think upon
    With always “do” and “pray”?

    You know I never loved you John;
    No fault of mine made me your toast:
    Why will you haunt me with a face as wan
    As shows an hour-old ghost?

    I dare say Meg or Moll would take
    Pity upon you, if you’d ask:
    And pray don’t remain single for my sake
    Who can’t perform that task.

    I have no heart?—Perhaps I have not;
    But then you’re mad to take offense
    That I don’t give you what I haven’t got:
    Use your own common sense.

    Let bygones be bygones:
    Don’t call me false, who owed not to be true:
    I’d rather answer “No” to fifty Johns
    Than answer “Yes” to you.

    Let’s mar our pleasant days no more,
    Song-birds of passage, days of youth:
    Catch at today, forget the days before:
    I’ll wink at your untruth.

    Let us strike hands as hearty friends;
    No more, no less; and friendship’s good:
    Only don’t keep ulterior ends,
    And points not understood

    In open treaty. Rise above
    Quibbles and shuffling off and on:
    Here’s friendship for you if you like; but love,—
    No, thank you, John.

    Theme/Meaning:

    “Fog”

    The fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

    Theme/Meaning:

    “Eldorado”


    Gaily bedight,
    A gallant knight,
    In sunshine and in shadow,
    Had journeyed long,
    Singing a song,
    In search of Eldorado.

    But he grew old-
    This knight so bold-
    And o'er his heart a shadow
    Fell as he found
    No spot of ground
    That looked like Eldorado.

    And, as his strength
    Failed him at length,
    He met a pilgrim shadow-
    "Shadow," said he,
    "Where can it be-
    This land of Eldorado?"

    "Over the Mountains
    Of the Moon,
    Down the Valley of the Shadow,
    Ride, boldly ride,"
    The shade replied-
    "If you seek for Eldorado!"
