The City Limits - Transitional piece - Concrete descriptions - Poem has a breathless momentum, it is all one sentence - Repeated syntax of “when you consider” o It is resolved: “then the heart moves roomier”  Simple, but a disguised “If this” , “then that”  Finally we get to a consequence of building up  Gives it a musical effect because it is about the natural world and its energies being carried by momentums  There is something riddling about this in juxtaposition Prayer (I) - Juxtaposition of a variety of different images trying to characterize what prayer is o Each one of them metaphorically relates back to what prayer is -
