Transcript of The Gift

The Gift
Structure
This poem is mostly free verse, it mostly has no set structure and does not need to follow a rhyme scheme, this allows the author to be creative and unrestricted.
There are two caesura cases, the effect of them, is to hilight or emphasize a point, most of the times of the line before the pause.
The poem is divided into three stanzas, the first one consists of 11 lines, the second one of 8 and the last of just 1.

After the

accident
, the hospital,
they brought me
aching

home
mouth pumped up like a tyre
black
stitches tracking the wound
over my lip, the red slit signalling
the
broken
place
.

And my son
my tall,
cool
son of sixteen
kissed
the top of my head
and over the curve of my shoulder
laid his arm, like the broad wing
of a mother bird
guarding
its young.
TENDERNESS as the purpose of the poem.
A woman had an accident. She is hurt, but is grateful for the tenderness granted by her son towards her.
THE ATMOSPHERE CHANGES THROUGH OUT THE POEM.

First 6 verses:
Hurt, Sadness

Rest of the poem:
Hope, Safety, Protectiveness, TENDERNESS



Conclusion
No accident
By: Marina Lagomarsino, Tatiana Morton, Isabella Mautone, Camila Ibarburu and Maria Ines Moran
After the accident, the hospital,
they brought me aching home
mouth pumped up like a tyre
black stitches tracking the wound
over my lip, the red slit signalling
the broken place. And my son
my tall, cool son of sixteen
kissed the top of my head
and over the curve of my shoulder
laid his arm, like the broad wing
of a mother bird guarding its young.

Anyone who has known tenderness
thrown like a lifeline into the heart of pain
anyone who has known pain bleed into tenderness
knows how the power of the two combine.
And if I am a fool to give thanks
for pain as well as tenderness
and even if, as some would say
there are no accidents-

Still. I am grateful for the gift
