Having read a few of Seamus Heaney's poems before, I have chosen Blackberry-picking to analyse. That is a lovely poem that provides vivid details and smart diction. The writer is wanting to relay on a deeper meaning utilizing the simple situation of picking blackberries, even though the subject matter of the poem understood that the blackberries would rot, he still selected and got caught up in the thrills. This is to mean that in life, as humans most of us get excited for several things and assume that we live on cloud nine, but the life bring us again. It's simply a lessons that is never learnt and is also always repeated. After scanning this poem few times I think it is a very good poem with good quality dialect.
