“Little Annie’s Ramble” by Nathaniel Hawthorne

In this poem “Little Annie’s Ramble” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the author wants to tell his
readers and audiences that in today’s society, people as they growing up and getting older, they
behave in strange way by forgetting were also a child. The author used imagery as theme to
develop his passage where he states that “None but myself and little Annie, whose feet begin to
move in unison with the lively tune, as if she were loth that music should be wasted without a
dance. But where would Annie find a partner? Some have the gout in their toes, or the
rheumatism in their joints; some are stiff with age; some feeble with disease.” This demonstrate
that the little girl was enjoying her time by moving and dancing. She wish she had someone who
could joined her, unfortunately, it didn’t happen because she was surrounded of older people
who were in a bad living and health condition.
