The poem The Horses is one of the most descriptive and imagery poems i have read in a while. The horses symbolized the way of life that our grandfathers lived and then over the years we become more dependent on technology. It showes a how we have evolved from buggies and wagons to tractors and other machines. Even though we have left the horses behind and forgot about them they were there for us when the technology (machines let us down) . I also thought the part about the radios was really bold and discriptive part.
'The radios failed; we turned the knobs; no answer.
On the third day a warship passed us, heading north,
Dead bodies piled on the deck. On the sixth day
A plane plunged over us into the sea. Thereafter
Nothing. The radios dumb;
And still they stand in corners of our kitchens,
And stand, perhaps, turned on, in a million rooms
All over the world. But now if they should speak,
If on a sudden they should speak again,
If on the stroke of noon a voice should speak,
We would not listen, we would not let it bring'
After reading this part i had this image of 1984 and how they had to only listen to a certain person. When i was done reading the peom i had almost drew this whole sketch of what he was discribing and i love that about poems.
