Taking Down The Laundrey
After reading this poem, I thought the basic story of the poem is how this mother is seeing her kids grow and how their clothes change with their age. The emotion of this poem is that she is sad to see her children leave. In the poem the writer talks about wind and how it pulled her sons shirt away. I beleive that the wind symbolizes her son's leaving or that it washed them away because my favorite line is when the author says that " the laundrey billows now; everything is moving and I watch my sons shirt pull free away from the line."
