Comparison of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and "In a Dark Time"
Lucy in the sky with diamonds and In a Dark Time both talk about the nature. They both describe the nature around them, using imagery. “Picture yourself in a boat on a river,with tangerine trees and marmalade skies.“ these lines from Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds paints a picture of a river and trees surrounding you. “A lord of nature weeping to a tree, I live between the heron and the wren, Beasts of the hill and serpents of the den.” these lines also describes the trees around you but in the first poem you imagine a wonderful river with trees but in the second poem the lines make you feel scared because when you read the lines from the second poem, it makes you grisly, it describes darkness. In the second poem I think of a scary forest. Whereas, the first poem makes you think of a forest like heaven. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds creates an image of heaven; on the other hand In a Dark Time creates an image of hell in your mind. Lucy in the sky uses the words to create a bright atmosphere but In a Dark time creates a dark atmosphere as you can understand it from the title.
