Abstract
King David was the author of Psalms 23: 1-6, and was revered throughout the bible as a great man that had great leadership qualities, and was admired by God. God himself referred to David as a man after his own heart. Throughout the Bible, there was only one man that held the heart of God; and that man was David. God described David as being a, “man after God’s own heart,” and gave the reason why He felt this way about David. “I have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do” (Acts 13: 22, Life Application Study Bible). The poetic words of Psalms 23 was written by King David, illustrating God as our Shepherd who provides, leads, protects, and comforts.

Psalms 23
The Lord the Shepherd of His People
A Psalm of David.
23 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell[a] in the house of the Lord
Forever (Psalm 23:1-6, The Maxwell Leadership Bible).
Introduction
Jewish liturgical related to the Psalms “Jewish prayer- language reflects the Psalms in mood and style. Israel Abrahams said, “In prophecy God speaks to man, in psalmody man sings to God” [ (The Psalms in Jewish Liturgy, 2012) ]. The Psalms reflect the emotional aspect of the Hebrew people through songs, music, and poetry. The use of symbolism is a…...

...Quezon City Polytechnic University Batasan Satellite Campus Batasan Hills, Quezon City Research Paper in Symbolic Logic HOMOSEXUALITIES Submitted by Joann E. Buenavente Submitted to Prof. Fabian Avila I. Introduction Homosexuality Homosexuality is romantic or sexual attraction or behavior between members of the same sex or gender. As an orientation, homosexuality refers to "an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectionate, or romantic attractions" primarily or exclusively to people of the same sex; "it also refers to an individual's sense of personal and social identity based on those attractions, behaviors expressing them, and membership in a community of others who share them." Homosexuality is one of the three main categories of sexual orientation, along with bisexuality and heterosexuality, within the heterosexual-homosexual continuum (with asexuality sometimes considered a fourth). Scientific and medical understanding is that sexual orientation is not a choice, but rather a complex interplay of biological and environmental factors,[1][3] especially with regard to early uterine environment. While there are those who still hold the view that homosexual activity is "unnatural" or "dysfunctional", research has shown that homosexuality is an example of natural variation in human sexuality and is not in and of itself a source of negative psychological effects. Prejudice and discrimination against homosexual and bisexual......

Poetry and Figurative Language Paper

...Poetry and Figurative Language paper Aaron Smith ENG/340 January 8, 2013 Nicole Svee Magann Poetry and Figurative Language paper From this week’s readings I have chosen the following three poems; “My grandmother’s love letters” by Hart Crane, “The road not taken” by Robert Frost, and “Richard Cory” by Edward Arlington Robinson. My Grandmother’s Love Letters By Hart Crane (1899-1932) There are no stars tonight But those of memory. Yet how much room for memory there is In the loose girdle of soft rain. There is even room enough For the letters of my mother’s mother, Elizabeth, That have been passed so long Into the corner of the roof That they are brown and soft, And liable to melt as snow. Over the greatness of such space Steps must be gentle. It is all hung by an invisible white hair. It trembles as birch limbs webbing the air. And I ask myself: “Are your fingers long enough to play Old keys that are but echoes: Is the silence strong enough To carry back the music to its source And back to you again As though to her?” Yet I would lead my grandmother by the hand Through much of what she would not understand; And so I stumble. And the rain continues on the roof With such a sound of gently pitying laughter. (Thiel, 2005, pp. 295-296) The imagery in this poem is very rich and vivid. At the beginning I see a darkness that is beginning to be lite up by fond memories, like a candle getting brighter and brighter. I can hear rain falling on the......

...degree. And if when I died fully I cannot say, And changed into the corpse-thing I am to-day, Yet is it that, though whiling The time somehow In walking, talking, smiling, I live not now. Thomas Hardy ------------------------------------------------- Afterwards When the Present has latched its postern behind my tremulous stay, And the May month flaps its glad green leaves like wings, Delicate-filmed as new-spun silk, will the neighbours say, 'He was a man who used to notice such things'? If it be in the dusk when, like an eyelid's soundless blink, The dewfall-hawk comes crossing the shades to alight Upon the wind-warped upland thorn, a gazer may think, 'To him this must have been a familiar sight.' POETRY PAPER The land’s sharp features seemed to be The Century’s corpse outleant, His crypt the cloudy canopy, The wind his death-lament. The ancient pulse of germ and birth Was shrunken hard and dry, And every spirit upon earth Seemed fervourless as I. At once a voice arose among The bleak twigs overhead In a full-hearted evensong Of joy illimited ; An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small, In blast-beruffled plume, Had chosen thus to fling his soul Upon the growing gloom. So little cause for carolings Of such ecstatic sound Was written on terrestrial things Afar or nigh around, That I could think there trembled through His happy good-night air Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew And I was unaware.

...Final Paper In William Wordsworth’s poem ‘Strange fits of passion have I known’ he illustrates the Romantic view of nature and beautifully depicts the relationship between humans and nature. He uses a simple ballad form to relate the relationship between humanity and the natural world as one acting upon the other. He uses this simple dictation in his description of nature, which is real and concrete, allowing nature to be relatable to the reader, giving the poem a stronger impact on the concept of nature inspiring the mind. The poem begins with the narrator remembering a strange occurrence or “fits of passion”. This occurrence was one of great emotion that ultimately takes place in the last stanzas of the poem when the moon falls out of the sky and kills his lover Lucy. His connection with nature leads him to believe that such was possible. For Wordsworth presenting the Romantic ideals of nature was groundbreaking. Before this “strange fits of passion” takes place, Wordsworth sets the tone of the poem by stating that the narrator is unsure about telling the reader this occurrence. “I will dare to tell but in the lover’s ear alone”. He believes that only a lover or another in his same position would be able to understand what he actually encounters. The poem continues as the speaker takes a moment to reflect on the beauty of his lover Lucy as being “rose fresh is June”. His recollection of the evening’s events continues as he travels on horseback to Lucy’s cottage on......

...unlike other poets like Robert Frost whose use of rhythm and structure are present in every line. Hughes style of writing is focused on the way people of his time spoke and he expresses that in every poem where he tells a story in conversational manner. The poems that I chose by Hughes describe the history, the struggle, the future of African Americans with his use of imagery to convey optimism and give hope to the human spirit. Langston Hughes creates not only a poem but a live picture of the history of his people like in the poem “Negro” where he describes himself as “Black like the depths of my Africa” (3). Here he states cultural identity of his people and the pride of being black. One of the most consistent things that we see in Hughes poetry is his use of things that are in motion like: rivers, stairs, and roads to describe things, or people that change. In his poem “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” the use of rivers is used to describe the passing of time, “I’ve known rivers ancient as the world and older than the / flow of human blood in human veins” (2-3). Hughes word choice in every poem is essential to convey optimism of the human spirit even when he begins to describe the struggles that are faced with, they still have hope. We see this in the poem “Mother to Son” where we see a mother talking to her son and describing her painful life but she tells him, “So boy, don’t you turn back. / Don’t you set down on the steps” (14-15) to remind him that life is hard but you have......

...e Poetry and Figurative Language Paper ENG/340 Mark Jones Edward Wilson June 12, 2014 Introduction Poetry has been used since time immemorial for passing information to the society. Poets have however used different stylistic devices in ensuring that their message has been passed to their intended audience. Imagery, rhymes, symbolism, among other ingredients of figurative language is among the commonly used stylistic devices that poets use. This paper seeks to identify imagery, metaphors, rhyme and structure in three specific poems and identifying the effect, which such figurative language has had on the content and the message of the poems. Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken This is a poem where the poet gives a description of how he met two diverging roads in a yellow road and took the road the road that was less travelled, a decision that brought the big difference in his life. The message presented in the poem is very moving where the poet is speaking about making a decision out of two competing situations. Imagery- the first line of the poem creates an image where the reader is taken to a yellow wood and the poet describes of the two roads at the yellow woods. In the second stanza, the poet provides an image of the grassy road that also wanted wear. This clicks an image to the reader on the condition that the poet was in and a description of the road. The poet in this piece has......

...A Format for the Five Paragraphs in a Poetry Analysis Essay: Note: It is important to follow the guidelines for each paragraph as you would a cooking recipe. In other words, for each body paragraph, follow the simple ingredients. Format/Recipe for an Introduction: a). Write one to two sentences that briefly summarize the poem. Your first line should state the name of the poem, the poet’s full name, and the speaker’s intent or main idea. Note: For example, if you were writing about Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18, your first line would look something like, “William Shakespeare’s ‘Sonnet 18’ discusses the conflict that the speaker faces in trying to preserve the beauty of a young and innocent man.” Notice how this opening line follows the above instructions. b). Write about to three sentences that allow you to transition to the element that you will be discussing in your paper. This part is not your argument; this part is designed to transition yourself and your reader to the main point of your paper. c). Write a one to two sentence thesis statement. Your thesis statement will state your overall argument and include at least three rhetorical devices that you will analyze in order to support your argument. Note: For an in-depth discussion on constructing a solid thesis statement for this type of essay, feel free to refer to my previous article in the link provided here: Thesis Statement for a Poetry Analysis Essay Format/Recipe for Body Paragraph 1: a).

... INTRODUCTION Purpose/Justification Problems related to reading comprehension have been besetting both private and public educational institutions all over the country. In the Philippine setting evidences revealed that 2009, 2010 and 2011 NAT results exemplified that the second year students struggled much on reading comprehension as shown by the three mean percentage scores in English subject. In particular, the mean percentage scores of Macario B. Asistio Sr. High School—Unit I for the school years 2008-2009; 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 are 43.11, 36.57 and 36.60 respectively (Department of Educational Testing and Research Center, 2009; 2010; 2011). Likewise, comprehension related studies conducted locally have verified and supported that the students showed difficulty in reading comprehension (Columna, 2013; Ayles, 2009 and Dela Cruz, 2004). In a study conducted by Columna (2013), results revealed that the students were struggling to comprehended texts in their L2 with majority of them fall under instructional level and a significant of them fall under frustration level. In the same manner, Dela Cruz (2004) found that the students in the secondary level have difficulties in reading materials in the content areas especially in Mathematics and Science. The researcher posits that these comprehension problems have rooted from the questioning pedagogical strategy employed by the teachers. Chin (2002) found that questions, particularly those......

Religous Paper Hum/130

...Jesus and Muhammad By Kelli Halford HUM/130 3/20/2011 Ryan Shockey Christianity and Islam are both religions that are practiced across the world. Christianity has 2 billion followers, and Islam has 1 billion worshippers (Fisher, Mary P.2005). They have similar and different beliefs. They practice these religions in different ways, and follow two different leaders. In this paper I will cover the leaders they worship, their impact today, and the leader’s history. I will also explain the ways that their religious methods are carried out by the followers today. I will start off with Christianity. Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God. As stated in the Holy Bible. Most of these people believe that he was born is Bethlehem in a stable. They also believe that on his birthday he was visited by three kings, and Sheppard’s. They brought baby Jesus gifts of Messiah. Most of Jesus’ young life is unknown. One interesting incident is when he was 12 years old. He was found in a Temple talking to rabbis about the Torah. He was known to have a lot of factual information on this subject (Fisher, Mary P.2005). Christians believe that he was baptized at age 30 by a guy named John in a place called the Jordan River. After his baptism he went into the dessert for 40 days. Satan tried to tempt him during this time, and was unsuccessful. Then he collected his disciples named James, Andrew, Simon and John. He told his disciples that they did not need any possession, because......
