Transcript of Dover Beach
(Refering to the beach after industrialization) "Its meloncholy, long, withdrawing roar retreating to the breath of the night wind, down the vast edges drear and naked shingels of the world." "...for the world which seems to lie before us like a land of dreams... we are here as on a darkling plain swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,where ignorant armies clash by night." I think this is the most powerful part of the poem because he explains how the earth was once happy and beautiful but it has changed so negatively. He then after ends it with a deep insight on how we are unaware of what we're doing; we shouldn't fight over this land but we should cherish it. Imagery- "Listen! You hear the grating roar of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling." Words or phrases that appeal to any sense or any combination of senses.

Assignment When I was a child,
The ocean was calm,
The waves were only mild
And I sat under the palms.
I had not a care
In this nice and peaceful world,
With the wind through my hair,
As I grew older,
The waves became immense,
My responsibilities foretold,
The ocean would get intense.
For a while I did not return
Because it gave me woe,
I was more than concerned,
The ocean overflowed.
I wish I could have held her,
More tightly, my mommy,
Now I am an elder,
The ocean a tsunami.
I miss my childhood dearly,
I want the ocean calm,
I used to see so clearly,
Happy underneath the palms.
What has the world done
To my aging soul?
I can’t imagine, I can’t run,
The ocean took its toll.
I miss my youthful days,
Living by the sun,
Following the waves,
My life had not begun.
How come I am blind,
To the things I once treasured?
It’s cluttered: my mind,
And now I have displeasure. Water Girl Compare my poem with Dover Beach. In what ways are they similar/different? "Matthew Arnold." Encyclopedia of World Biography. 2004.
