Writing : Intro to Poetry: Pleasure

Poetry, Day Eight : Pleasure

Poetic device : Anaphora and Epistrophe

I  was happy when I met my cousins for the first time.

I was  happy to know my grandpa had an amazing garden of fruit trees.

I was happy my cousins were happy to meet me.

It was fun meeting my cousins but sad thinking I won’t see grandpa.

It was fun plucking the fruits but unhappy knowing I won’t see grandpa.

When I visited the village it hurt me to know that I won’t see grandpa!

Life gives us pleasure but tells us our life is complete if we can endure pain!
