Commentry On Ocean

Extracts from this document...


My Commentary The poem 'Ocean' by Abilasha Agarwal begins with the starting of day. The poem picks up by describing the nature and blend and characteristics, as if the ocean were a living soul. It goes on and elaborates the love and furry that takes place in its natural setting. Points were made about the many unpredictable volatile situations, that people near the ocean face.
