Please help me pick out the adjectives in this paragraph.
In the first two stanzas, Mr. Lowell emphasized the wealth of the dandelion by using several phrases suggesting riches, such as "harmless gold," "buccaneers," and "Eldorado." In the third stanza, the warmth of the flower is felt through such words as "tropics," "Italy," and "mid-June." The dandelion has a power to recall other scenes, and the poet reporduced this quality of reverie in the fourth stanza of his poem as he described "sunny meadows," "gleaming rushes, " and "woodland gaps" which he knew.

    What adjectives do you find?

    Remember that adjectives modify nouns and pronouns. They answer the questions, WHICH? WHAT KIND OF? and HOW MANY? about the words they describe.

    We'll be glad to check your answers and add to them if necessary.

    The next paragraph says:
    THe poem possesses a logical unity of thought and arrangement. The gold color of the dandelion reminded the poet of happy children playing as buccaneers; the warmth of its rich color suggested faraway sunny lands; such thoughts led to a reverie of many scenes he had known; he then recalled thoughts of his childhood, when he loved nature and knew it as a wise friend. From these thoughts he derived the summary stanza.

    I found:
    logical, gold, happy, playing, sunny, many, childhood, wise and summary.
    Did you find anymore?

  • English -

    rich, faraway, such, these

    Childhhood is a noun, not an adjective.

    Last paragraph

    THe thought of the last stanza, the keyto the thought of the whole poem, is much like that of Wadsworth's beautiful lines:

    "One impulse from a vernal wood
    May teach you more of man,
    Of moral eveil and of good,
    Than all the sages can."

    Thus will the dandelion, common yet rich in natural beauty, show us the divine beauty of the human heart if we will be look for it.

    I found:
    last, whole, beautiful, one, vernal, moral, all, natural, divine, human

    Do you see anymore?

  • English -

    Wadsworth's is used as an adjective.

    Both one and all are used as pronouns.

    The rest is correct.
