Very much enjoyed your insight to The Orange Tree, written by John Shaw Neilson this week. You write in such a way that is easy to understand, and I loved your insight to the contrasting attitudes an adult has compared to that of a child. Very well done on how you took this analyzing a step further and continued to portray how a child’s perception can be so simple, creative and fun, when looking at the very same thing as an adult, whose perception if often tainted by their mindset toward life itself. I enjoyed your own added criticism at the end of your blog, where you understood the poem but didn’t necessarily agree. I believe this is courageous as everything you criticize must be evident through your argument, which I believe you have done.
