Stanza 1

Stanza 3
Stanza 5
Stanza 4
The poem being spoken in first person by the narrator, meant in the first stanza was that it was alluding that the people he was speaking of (parents), whether or not they communicated to them (siblings) directly or not, the intent of their parents can still clearly be seen or felt; which was the parents’ wanting them to reunite.
The speaker is saying that there was no sort of occasion at the time. No holiday, no funerals; and at the same time, no one was talking about this occasion-less/purpose-less meeting as well.
Now in the third stanza, the speaker is clearly relaying the events that took place when he and his siblings arrved at their parents’ house. The children’s father called them by their names, and they responded by kissing his hand as their mother watched and greeted them “Welcome!”.
The speaker probably recalled that one event that lead to their long absence and estrangement and thought at present that their father had forgotten about it and even went ahead and invited the children back in to their home. As well as the mother’s unspoken intent of forgiveness, this is described further in the last stanza of the poem.

Here the mother’s actions had spoken louder than words of forgiveness. Now, the speaker is acknowledging the fact that he and
his siblings were being accepted and forgiven for their sins and being let inside their parent’s home and the last line somehow describes what once was torn apart, is now being put back together again.

ANSWERS:
Who is speaking?
The speaker of the poem is a son/daughter. The poem didn't actually specify the gender of the speaker. (But for purposes of this report we will refer to the speaker as a “he”)
To whom the speaker is speaking?
The speaker is presumably talking to an audience, the listener or third person.
What is the poem tone?
As the speaker was recounting the story of what happened when his family reunited, we understood the poem’s tone had a sort of a mix of disbelief, accepting, and light-hearted.
What is the mood of poem?
We felt that the atmosphere of the poem was that of both sincerity as well as joy and the poem also felt solemn throughout.
What is the theme/message of the poem?
The poem family reunion is about the sinful children that after their sins are forgiven by their parents. The poem is somewhat similar to the bible story the prodigal son that even he recognized his own foolishness and decided to return to his father and ask for forgiveness and mercy. The father who had been watching and waiting, receives his son back with open arms of compassion. He is overjoyed by the return of his lost son. Likewise in the poem, it also portrayed the filial piety and forgiveness from the parents.
Does the poem have a pattern?
Its a Free Verse. It does not use consistent meter patterns, rhyme, or any other musical pattern. It thus tends to follow the rhythm of natural speech
Identify the..
Imagery
Imagery is the detail of the senses that make a poem come alive for the reader. Imagery depends on who the reader is. But for me, I picture them as adults with their own homes and families going back to their roots. To their original family

Allusion
the sin of the poem family reunion by Carlos Angeles is that when the family tore apart and not seeing each other for a long time. As the saying goes by "love fades as well as time" not seeing each other and not having any communication made everyone in the family causes the allusion of forgetting each other.

Connection between the Author's life and the poem's theme
Based on Carlos Angeles biography there is no connection between his life with the theme of the poem.
