POEM My voice, Oscar Wilde Within this restless, hurried, modern world A We took our hearts' full pleasure--You and I,B And now the white sails of our ship are furled, A And spent the lading of our argosy. B Wherefore my cheeks before their time are wan, A For very weeping is my gladness fled, B Sorrow has paled my young mouth's vermilion, A And Ruin draws the curtains of my bed. B But all this crowded life has been to thee A No more than lyre, or lute, or subtle spell B Of viols, or the music of the sea A That sleeps, a mimic echo, in the shell. B
Oscar Wilde Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin, on 16 October 1854, he dies in París, on 30 November 1900. He wrote comedyies and ironic books, stories and poetry. Theme and most important feeling The most important feeling for me in the poem is loneliness. The poem is about that a girl leave the author, or dies, and he is very sad. Vocabulary I was learned vocabulary, for example: -restless: preocupado, inquieto, nervioso - furled: enrollado, doblado -spent: gastado, usado -lading:cargamento -argosy: buque mercante grande, buque de gran carga -cheeks: mejilla -wan: pálido, demacrado -weeping:lloroso, llorando -gladness: alegria -fled (to flee): huir -sorrow: pena -paled:tenue, palido -vermilion: bermejo -ruin: dañar -curtains: cortinas, telón - crowded:abarrotado -lute:laud -subtle:sutil 5
Rhyme and rythm This poem rhyme the first line of the third and the second to fourth in each stanza (ABAB). The lines have ten syllables. This poem has a easy rhythm. Personal response I really liked this poem because I think the authorâ€™s situation is very sad, because the woman who leaves the author if can be his mother or sister and because I think my mother or my grandmother died the world fall down over me. I think the author is sad because his projects, hopes and plans with this woman are truncated and his life will never be the same again.
SONG Pursuit of happiness, Kid kudi Mmmm ooohh... hey... Ratata... yeah... nah nah nah... nah nah nah Crush a bit, little bit, Roll it up, take a hit, Feeling lit, feeling right, 2am, summer night, I don't care, hand on the wheel, driving drunk I'm doing my thang, rolling in the mid beside me now, living my life, getting my dreams, people told me slow my road, I'm screaming out "fuck that", I'm a do just what I want, looking ahead no turning back, if I fall if I die, know I lived it to the fullest, if I fall if I die, know I lived than missing bullets. [Chorus:] I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know, everything is shining all is gonna be gold (hey), I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be gooooooooood. [x2] Tell me what you know about dreamin (dreamin), You ain't really know bout nothin (nothin), tell me what you know about the night terrors every night, 5am cold sweats, waking up to the sky, Tell me what you know about dreams (dreams), tell me what you know about night terrors nothin, you don't really care about the trials of tomorrow, rather lay awake in the bed full of sorrow.
[Chorus:] I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know, everything is shining all is gonna be gold (hey), I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be gooooooooood. [x2] I'm on the pursuit of happiness, I know everything is shining... always gold, I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be goood-ood... [Chorus:] I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know, everything is shining all is gonna be gold (hey), I'll be fine once I get it, I'll be gooooooooood. [x2] Pursuit of happiness... yeah...

Kid Kudi Kid Kudi was born on January 30, 1984 in Cleveland, Ohio. Kid Kudi is an alternative hip hop recording artist. Argument's song The argument of this song is a boy or girl looking for happiness smoking and got drunkand doing what she or he wants. I think in this song the authors wants to transmit the results ofconsumeing drugs. Vocabulary people told me slow my road: ablandar el camino looking ahead no turning back: mirando para adelante sin volver atras You ain't really know bout nothin: no se sabe realmente 9
waking up to the sky: despertando al cielo you don't really care about the trials of tomorrow: no se preocupan por las pruebas del ma単ana rather lay awake in the bed full of sorrow: tirado en cama lleno de tristeza Personal response I really like this song because it reminds me the last summer when I had good experiences training, in the competitions with my friends and in some parties, in particular the moment when my teammate Andrea and I were classifited for the first final in the Spanish Championship, we went to the jetty very happy and excited and I gave er a big hug to celebrate the good position.
