Comments on the "Lighthouse" poem



Author’s Comments

Lighthouse” is indeed an inspirational poem written in the form of an Acrostic with iambic pentameter verses. The speaker exhibits a tone of serious contentment well wrapped in an air of exuberance. This tone is reinforced by the speaker’s use of the lighthouse a universal image, as a metaphor to share insight into the audacity of hope. This is done through a careful balance of negative and positive symbols mixed with buoyancy seeping from the imagery.

Poetic wisdom dictates that tone is the attitudes of the speaker toward the subject and toward the audience, and as such, is manifested through inferences from the poem’s structure and in all the other elements of poetry such as: meter, diction, images, imagery, cadence, rhythm, rhyme, figurative language, literal meaning and symbolism. These elements are carefully extrapolated and the effects of these parts must be considered in relation to each other; bearing in mind that each verse line may set up a strong vibratory tone. However, in order to judge fairly the tone the speaker exhibits, the wisest thing to do is to consider the poem as a whole.

Is Barbados the Hurricane's sweetheart?

Haiti Under Rubble from 7.0 Earthquake

Natural disasters whenever and wherever they occur impact on all of our lives. The Good Book says we are our brothers and sisters keepers lead by the Holy Spirit. Hence, we must do our part when disaster shows its ugly face. Any assistance, great or small, given from generous and loving hearts has equal weight. I'm passing on this information I received that Barbadians can go to First Caribbean Bank to donate to the Disaster Relief Fund for Haiti. The banking information is shown below:

First Caribbean Bank Account--2645374-- Cheques can be written to: HELP #2645374

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti.
