Compare and contrast the two opposing human feelings as expressed by the poet.
The poet has used expressions of gloominess and happiness in her poem. These contrasting expressions are used to highlight the fact that there are two sides to life. Each one of us has the choice to focus on what we desire. For instance, the poet describes a happy garden and also the silent fields. She tells her brother not to focus on the silent fields. We should think about the ideal nature of life and ignore the sorrow and sadness of this physical world.
