You’re Excellency, Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen,

 

It is my honor to be here to talk about my feeling after the contest. Honestly speaking, this contest is fantastic and it will be a memorable experience for me forever.

 

During the contest, I read William Wordsworth’s masterpiece as I appreciate his writing style and the atmosphere he creates. During the poem, he describes peaceful rural life beside a beautiful lake. Wordsworth's poem, "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," displays a similar pattern of experience. It begins with an event and the emotion stimulated by that event; it describes the recollection of that event in tranquility; and it ends with a second emotion that is "kindred" to the first emotion. While the poem does not deal with the actual writing of poetry, it nevertheless traces the re-creative powers of imagination and memory--powers of the mind that are, to Wordsworth, essential to the poetic act.

 

Meanwhile, it shows a vivid picture about the experience of time. The first experience, the experience of the first three stanzas, is recorded all in the past tense ("wandered," "gazed"). This experience is past; it is over; it functions in the mode of time that is subject to loss. The second experience is conveyed to us in the present tense. The first experience, the experience of the first three stanzas, is recorded all in the past tense ("wandered," "gazed"). This experience is past; it is over; it functions in the mode of time that is subject to loss. The second experience is conveyed to us in the present tense. Nowadays, people are stressed and occupied by the modern urban life. We pursue materialized happiness and forget searching the peace of soul. Thus, so many people get depressed or confused by the crowd. This poem, however, reminds us of the “old golden” days. Life is a treasure rather than grasping all kinds of luxurious.

 

Again, I would like to thank all the people whom support me during the contest. Thanks for your listening.
