Winter swans and when we two parted essay

Both of these poems have a lot in common such as they are both about a relationship, and both have a bit of negativity in it and theme of both of them are very depressing.

Winterms swans is about the relationship of two swans and that maybe it is suggesting that they are parting when swans stay with there partner for a life time and in the poem the writer sets it to be a very sad start including dark water and rain ” 2 days of rain” this could symbolise that the relationship between the two swans haven’t been good for a couple of days and they are gna split up. when we two parted is about a relationship ending too and has a very sad scene ” pale grew thy cheek and cold” the scene is a very cold scenes which could suggest that it is been a very bad day.

Which poem could u compare to ‘walking away’

The poem that i think tgat went well with walking away and mother any distance. The reason i think this is because they both are about someone part of a family and they are slowly moving away from someone eles life

Both the poems are about the farther and the mothers childern and both of them have been seperate from their children. Mother from any distance is about a son moving out from his parents house and being free and walking away is about one of the writers son and how the writer left.
