  • Why do you always make fun of my singing?
  • Sorry. I make fun of everybody's singing.
  • The poem will be about a mystical tree that poisons everything around it.
  • The speaker bottles up his anger toward his enemy. He presents a false front and acts nicely toward the enemy while cursing him in his head. Eventually, his anger and deceit lead to tragedy. The enemy dies, and the speaker's corrupted moral compass causes him to feel a twisted happiness at this result.
  • The man's anger is considered a poison. The tree and the apple are poisonous growths that, like anger, can kill.
  • Blake uses words like "wrath", "foe", "deceitful", "wiles", and "stole" to convey the dark emotions of the poem. The speaker has a sinister and venomous tone.
  • A shift occurs in the first stanza when the speaker goes from telling his anger to keeping it in. The poem gradually grows more sinister as it progresses from this point. The sentence lengths in the first stanza are short and simple, but they later increase as the speaker's wrath becomes more intense and his lies more frequent.
  • After reading the poem, I realize that the tree is a symbol of the speaker's anger. As the speaker dwells on his anger, the tree grows poisonous fruit, suggesting that anger produces dangerous results.
  • Expressing our emotions is a healthy way the deal with conflict.
