Poem interpretation, and favourite poem.

A poem that I love must be the Timothy Winters by Charles Causley. It shares a tragic tale, of mistreatment, abuse, and suffering, in a beautiful manner, illustrated by many different rhymes. It is also very descriptive.

Here is the poem.

One of my favorite verses in this poem is this one.

Old Man Winters likes his beer 
And his missus ran off with a bombardier, 
Grandma sits in the grate with a gin 
And Timothy's dosed with an aspirin. 

It describes Timothy's hardships at home, but in a smooth, rhythmic way.


Today after talking about how to interpret a poem I feel that I am quite comfortable with learning new techniques on how to interpret poems, and that I found it to be quite easy to pick up.
Even though I had never heard of the different qualities that we discussed today, I still was able to pick it up.
