    Theme: Beauty of Nature “The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet”

    Onomatopoeia, auditory image. “Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo” It is reproducing a joyful but primitive noise at the same time, that contains not an agressive tone but a peaceful one.
    Personification. “Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king”, it uses the spring in this poem as it is the most beautiful season of the year and compares it to those who are the most powerfull people, kings.
    Alliteration. “Spring, the Sweet Spring” the repetition of the ‘s’ creates a feeling of silence, which is related to the peaceful atmosphere.

    1)The theme could be seen as the joyfulness of nature during spring “Sweet, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king”

    2) *Onomatopeia: “Cuckoo jug-jug, pu-wee, to-witta-woo” This expression, a clear onomatopeia, makes the reader feel the joy and wonderfulness of nature and spring.
    *Pathetic fallacy: “And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay” Birds are singing happily and filled with love, the same way as humans burst with emotions during spirng.

    The themes are nature and spring.
    Onomatopoeia is used in the line “Cuckoo jug-jug, pu-wee, to-witta-woo”, this conveys to the reader the cheerful tone of the poem.

    “Spring, the sweet spring” is an alliteration that again reinforces the message of the poem, it makes it clear to the reader that spring is the sweetest season, that it brings hope and joy.

  9. Malena Di Bella and Juan Pablo Carreira says:

    The themes of the poem are nature, spring, life. The quotes are “Spring, the sweet spring” (spring), “young lovers meet” (life) and “daisies kiss our feet” (nature).
    -rhyme: “king, ring, sing” which makes the poem stuck in the reader’s mind and creates a rhythm that the reader can follow.
    -onomatopoeia: “cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to witta-woo!” this helps the reader visualize nature and the animals that bring back alive the year with its joy and “colourfulness”.
    -imagery: “pretty birds do sing”, the doble imagery (visual and auditory) provides a brief but accurate description of the birds that can also symbolize the nature itself since all of it is pretty.

  10. Amalia Seré says:

    The themes of this poem would be life and nature. “Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king. Then blooms each thing,”

    Literary figures:
    1) The author uses pathetic falacy to show through nature how he feels, specially during spring time, to show an optimistic view about life.
    2) Onomatopoeia, as symbolising the bird’s way of singing, to make the poem even more joyful towards life and to transmit how nature is alived too.
    3) the author uses also imageries make as feel more close to nature and its beaty, “the daisies kiss our feet”.

  11. Gitika+Anil+Manwani says:

    The themes are life/birth and hope.
    The description of blooming dreams are a symbol for rebirth and beauty that make the reader perceive the hope in the poem, the hope that the spring brings.
    The use of onomatopoeia “cuckoo” conveys the joy expressed in the poem and conveys to the reader a positive attitude.
    The presence of pathetic fallacy: ‘Young lovers meet’ ties the idea of the natural freshness and excitement of Spring with the first emotions of love or romance.
