Poetry Explication = Poetry Dissection

This paper... actually has no due date ( thank you Ms. Lazarus!) but still it has to be done (preferably before I start on the research paper).
So I've spent the last couple days ripping this John Donne Sonnet to shreds. I will warn you... the first time you read it it will make no sense... that picture at the bottom? I've done that 3 times and seen something different every time. But every time I read it I like it more.

John Donne - Holy Sonnet #1

Thou hast made me, and shall thy work decay?
Repair me now, for now mine end doth haste;
I run to death, and death meets me as fast,
And all my pleasures are as yesterday.
I dare not move my dim eyes any way,
Despair behind, and death before doth cast
Such terror, and my feeble flesh doth waste
By sin in it, which it towards hell doth weigh.
Only thou art above, and when towards thee
By thy leave I can look, I rise again;
But our old foe so tempteth me
that not one hour myself I can sustain.
Thy grace may wing me to prevent his art,
And thou like adamant draw mine iron heart.

I'm going to need to take the picture at the bottom of my page off in a few days :D

(but that makes me sad 'cause I like that picture)

In my family watching TV game shows does not end with just watching them... we like to yell out the answers at the TV screen. I seriously think my Grandmother and Aunt should go on Wheel of Fortune because they would probably win. Rebecca, however should probably never ever set foot on Wheel of Fortune. And this is why.

Category: Fun and Games

T_R_ _ _ N_

Rebecca: Tranquilizer darts! Oh...wait no...

Emily: Really Rebecca?

Me: I'm pretty sure those are not in the category of "Fun and Games"

Mom: Depends on what end of the dart you're on.

And just in case you wanted to know, the answer was Throwing Darts

Just in case you wondered

Abby: Rudolph the red nosed reindeer

Jeb: Had a very lousy nose!

Abby: HEY! Stop Jeb!

(indistinct arguing)

Abby: Well Jeb, I like the song and you don't. End. Of. Conversation.

(muttering form Jeb)

Abby: Jeb you are SO ANNOYING!!

Jeb: Yeah well you're irritating!

... this is what an argument between a 4 year old and a 7 year old who are home schooled sounds like.
We didn't even know Abby knew the word "conversation" until this happened.

If this doesn't make you laugh I don't know what will.
