Prayer Before Birth | Poem by Louis MacNeice

The poem beautifully presents the thoughts of the poet through the mouth of the baby who is still unborn. The baby is well aware of the gravity of the situation across the world that he is just too scared to take birth. He simply knows that the world is too evil that he will not be able to sustain here, given its innocence.

Beta Cancri is the brightest star in the constellation of cancer, his zodiac sign. This is where the character experienced deep lost in space. With him gazing to the stars, he constantly asks all of the stars of his savior to save him from this vacuum of space. He is hopeless, but still searches desperately.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers | A Poem by Emily Dickinson

“Hope” is the thing with feathers | A Poem by Emily Dickinson

In the poem, Emily talks about hope, something that’s got feathers and perches in the soul, and sings wordless songs like a beautiful bird.
Its sound can be heard in the chilliest land and in the strangest sea but never loud and clear. It takes a part of the soul of the person having it.
