Reread “Will there really be a ‘Morning’?” on page 230 of your text and the lesson slides for Module 13, Day 63. Please answer the following questions in complete sentences. (15 points) Who is the speaker in the poem? Please write a complete sentence and provide a quote to support your answer. I would say the speaker is either a really young child since she/he didn’t mention the sun which is where light comes from which we humans call morning and day, Or she is an older wise women/man who is trying to understand something that hundreds of people wonder about.
What is the speaker trying to understand? Please write a complete sentence and provide a quote to support your answer. The speaker is trying to understand what made morning and how will she/he know its coming again, where did this thing called morning and day come from.
What do you notice about the structure of the poem? What is unusual about it? Please write complete sentences. There are capitalized words all through out the poem. She emphasized a lot of words by quoting them and capitalizing them.
That fact that the words “Morning” and “Day” are capitalized and in quotes is significant. What are some things that come to mind when you think of these two ideas? What do you associate with morning and daytime? What do you think these two things symbolize? I think that morning and day are based on time, and its based on the sun. The sun is a traditional time setter. I think Morning goes from 12:00am to 11:59am, I think Day is 12:00pm to sunset. After that is a whole other poem.
The lesson slides state that “the speaker is awed by the vastness of the world – both those things visible and invisible. She is awed by life!” Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why or why not? I agree, because life can be a “tricky ball to roll around”, everyone has their own opinions and statements. And even geniuses “state facts” but who decides if their true? Ourselves. We decide everything, because we don’t HAVE to believe anybody. We CHOOSE to believe someone. But we don’t always know or study what we truly bewilder. We let the perplexity of the situation take over us, and this person wants their questions answered once and for all.
