Storyboard Text

  • Title
  • Will There Really Be A "Morning" ?
  • Paraphrase
  • Will there really be a "Morning" ? Please to tell a little pilgrim where the place called "Morning" lies !
  • Is morning from a foreign land ?
  • Connotation
  • Could I see "Morning" from the mountain if I were as tall as they ?
  • "Will There Really Be A 'Morning'" sounds like the thoughts of a person who fears they will not live through the night.
  • Attitude/tone
  • Oh how I long for light ! Will I ever find light ?
  • The speaker asks "Will there really be a "Morning" ? She questions whether day really exists, and if she can see it.She questions if morning is a plant, animal, or an imported item. The speaker begs for a person, someone not as worthless as she, to tell her "Where the place called 'Morning' lies !"
  • Shift
  • What is morning ? A plant, an animal, a foreign country
  • I, but a little pilgrim, ask where the place called "morning" lies !
  • The speaker uses the words, mountains, tall, pilgrim, scholar, and sailor, to create a feeling of triviality in the reader's mind. Mountains and tall, emphasizes that the speaker is not as great and admired as the mountains. The words, pilgrim, scholar, and sailor, prove to the reader, through such a contrast, that the speaker feels that she, a pilgrim, is worthless, as opposed to a scholar or a sailor, who are intelligent and worldly.
  • Title and Theme
  • Does morning exist ? What does it mean ?
  • The tone is the speaker's yearning for light, otherwise happiness. To the speaker, morning is so far off, it can be seen from the mountains, but the speaker has lost hope, since she is not as tall as they. The speaker is unfamiliar with happiness, and is in an everlasting depression, and is asking others who have experienced happiness to show her the path to happiness.
  • There is a shift. It can be found when the speaker is analyzing the possibilities of what morning might be, to when she shifts to belittling herself by calling herself a pilgrim, and begging others to tell her "Where the place called 'Morning' lies !"
  • The title is questioning if morning exists, and what it is. To the speaker, morning is happiness, she has never experienced morning, and is in search of it. The theme of the poem is, in everlasting darkness, finding light is different for all.
  • Will others be able to help me find light ?
