9He abused her love and treated her so bad
10There was not enough education in her world
11That could save the life of this little girl
22She even blamed things on herself
24Nothing was wrong as far as we could tell
25That’s what we’d like to tell ourselves
33And maybe next time we could save somebody’s life
19Death is abroad…. Oh, the black season!
A very difficult type of literature is poetry.
Poetry is very hard to understand especially when students or anyone is analyzing it under pressure or being forced. When poetry is not being forced to study, it is generally taken more serious and it is easier for poetry to be understood.
Poetry can be linked to music in many ways. Some ways can be by the type of genre, lyrics, emotion and pictures. Emotion is the easiest way to relate two pieces of information together. This is the easiest way because no one will feel exactly the same as you.
The poem that I have chosen to go with the song is ‘How come, How long’ by ‘Babyface featuring Stevie Wonder’ and for my poem is ‘Song be delicate’ by ‘J. Shaw Neilson’.
The poem and the song is linked by love, and death. In the poem it says that there should be lovers everywhere, and death is just so open, because you can die in many ways and in the song it says that this girl falls in love with the wrong kind of man and she paid with her life for loving that man.
This poem can be interpreted so many ways because the poem uses open words which can be taken in more than one way. The song that I have I think can only be taken one way because it is like a story in a way.
In order to show you that a poem can be read in more than one way, I will show you two different treading on the poem ‘Song be delicate’ by ‘J. Shaw Neilson’.

Line 5 is the same as line 1.
Line 6-8 means that love can be taken seriously and not seriously. It depends o how you take it on the result. If you take it not seriously you will find that you relationship will breakdown and you will be crying if you wanted to take a seriously.
Line 9 is the same as Line 5 and 1. This part of the poem means that all different kinds of people can understand different kinds of people can understand different kinds of things.

Line 14-16 means that when the people and go home their love is not appreciated enough, but they feel safe at homes.
Line 17 is the same as line 13,9,5 and 1. Line 18-20 means that death is open in many ways that you can die, there should not be no one to be happy about death. Death is a time when you should be thankful for who they were.
Line 1 means that the person that you love is being protected. Line 2-4 means that there should be no war in the world so there is lovers everywhere.
Line 5 is the same as line 1 means that love can be taken lightly and if so there will not many feelings being hurt as if one person out of the relationship did and the other one didn’t.
Line 9 means the same as line 5 and 1. Line 10 means that someone that you think is not listening to you could actually be. 11-12 can mean that the people listening to you knows what is going to happen in the next year.
