The following is an excerpt from the poem "originally" by Carol Ann Duffy We came from our own country in a red room which fell through the fields, our mother singing our father’s name to the turn of the wheels. My brothers cried, one of them bawling, Home, Home, as the miles rushed back to the city, the street, the house, the vacant rooms where we didn’t live any more. I stared at the eyes of a blind toy, holding its paw. How does the poet covey contrasting moods in this stanza?
The poet conveys contrasting moods in this stanza through her use of language. The mother is "singing" which suggests an cheerful and optimistic mood. Where as the brothers "cried" which suggests unhappiness and distress. The "blind toy" suggests the mood of unease as the toy is incomplete or has aged.
