stuff for tag finals

In one sentence, what is the theme of the poem? Add 2 quotes illustrating this theme. Someone can't always hold your hand; they will eventually have to let you go, but you will always have them to fall back on. "Propped in the door, Bill heard him circling, a dark star in the dark..." "He knew where McKinley was, though McKinley didn't..."
What is the POV of the poem? Include at least 2 quotes from the poem to illustrate the POV. The point of view is 3rd person omniscient. "He knew where McKinley was, though McKinley didn't..." "But one night, McKinley, Bill's younger brother, stayed away late, and it was dark when he started down the hill."
What is the perspective? Add 2 quotes illustrating the perspective. This is mostly from Bill's perspective. "And Bill who had gotten up to cool himself..." "Propped in the door, Bill heard him circling..."
Adopt a different POV and list it (choose one that makes sense - 3rd limited from Bill's perspective is a good choice). Rewrite a few lines of the poem from the alternate perspective. 1st person limited from McKinley. (10): I missed the house and went on down and crossed the draw and pounded on where the pasture widened on the other side, I was lost then for sure."
Read the new lines out loud. What is the theme of this new poem? Add 2 quotes illustrating the theme. This new theme is more literal. Instead of having a parallel to Genesis, it has a theme surrounding how we run away from things we do not know.
How i the theme different from the original? Explain your answer. This new theme is more centered around the human reaction to the unknown, rather than a giant metaphor.
