heart and mind

In the poem  the lion represents the mind and the lioness represent the heart.This poem elaborates the argument that the mind and the heart are not similar the lion docent see the difference between the heart and mind.We do not hear anything from the lioness because it is a dialogue where the lion is telling the lioness.A skeleton then speaks and uses a metaphor: the sun is the heart and the moon is the mind , where the sun can consume the moon or block it showing that the heart can cloud your mind judgement.Before the poem had begun where the lion and lioness had been in the middle of a conversation meaning that they were probably talking.In this poem there is four stanzas which break the poem.The emotional curve on the poem may be where the lion, lioness and skeleton are in a conversation or a shape of a circle with three dots,each being a character.the main character in the poem is the lion because he starts a conversation.

    Your poem analysis is extremely inspiring , after reading your post i have a whole new view point on this poem. I could tell you spend hours crafting this masterpiece. If only your sentence were more complex, your grade/level would be better as your understanding is top notch.
