The following two poems, Mary Wroth’s Sonnet 64 from Pamphilia to Amphilanthus and “I...and Your Eyes by Etheridge Knight have certain similarities and differences. One major difference in both poems is the point of view. In the Sonnet 64 from Pamphilia to Amphilanthus is written in the third person point of view. So the poet makes statement like “but if he play”. The use of the pronoun he and his indicates a third person point of view. In the poem, “I...and Your Eyes”, the poet uses first person point of view. The poet states that, “If I could hold your hillside”. The use of I indicates the first person point of view.One major similarity of both poems is the symbolism of eyes. In both poems, the use of eyes is very repetitive. In the first poem he states, “wanting eyes” and is also states, “instead of eyes”. In the second poem, the poem repeats the line “And I and your eyes”. So this both poems show that eyes symbolizes self reflection and a want for something. Another similarity is the structure of both poems. Both poems have three stanzas, with 4 lines in the first stanza and five after words.
