A Moment of Happiness
A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden's beauty
and the birds singing.
The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.
In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.
By Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
One of the values of a poem is love value. Khalil Gibran shows the value of love through the poem. The line above shows how the writer feels as one with his couple. Rumi feels that he and his sweetie may be different in many things, for instance, characters, habit, but they are same in one thing. They have the same love.

Togetherness
you and I sitting on the verandah,
You and I unselfed, will be together,
as we laugh together, you and I.

Those lines describe how the writer and his darling stay together. They spend the time as beautiful as the situation together. They are so happy and  looks everything is joyful. Because of love, they stay together and get a moment of happiness. The nature seems to be very great and exciting for them, absolutely due to love. It is what everybody feels when they fall in love and spend the time together.

Repetition

you and I, with the garden's beauty

You and I unselfed, will be together,
as we laugh together, you and I.

The repetition occurs six times. The word appears is “you and I”. Rumi want to give stress about their togetherness. He wants to stress up that there are only him and his sweetheart, no one else.

Behind the Scene
Is it your face
that adorns the garden?
Is it your fragrance
that intoxicates this garden?
Is it your spirit
that has made this brook
a river of wine?
Hundreds have looked for you
and died searching
in this garden
where you hide behind the scenes.
But this pain is not for those
who come as lovers.
You are easy to find here.
You are in the breeze
and in this river of wine.
By Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Contrast
Hundreds have looked for you

Rumi tries to illustrate the opposite situation through the use of Contrast. The contrast is described by the word “but”. By this contrast situation show how Rumi wants the readers to imagine the dramatic process to get in touch t the person in the poem.

Hyperbole

The word “hundreds” has a purpose to make the situation is dramatically acceptable. It seems to over use of the diction, but this is the unique of poem. Using extraordinary words to make the poem sounds beautiful.

Love is a Magic Ray
Love is a magic ray
emitted from the burning core
of the soul
and illuminating
the surrounding earth.

It enables us
to perceive life
as a beautiful dream
between one awakening
and another.
By Khalil Gibran

The Power
Khalil Gibran wants to show that love has the value of “power”.  The word “illuminating the surrounding earth” means that love as like a magic ray that can give ray or light for the earth. The earth as the big creation of God still needs the “power” of the light. It means that Khalil Gibran wants to deliver a message that love has a big power. The light of the love can emit and illuminate the surrounding earth. Therefore, love can give the “power” for people who fall in love to reach a lot of things even a big thing. It can give the happiness for the owner (the people who fall in love) and the people surrounding.
The other words that show the power of love is “it enables us”. From the words, Khalil Gibran wants to show that love has a power. The ability of love to perceive life as a beautiful dream makes the lover can be very strong to face life and feel that life is as a beautiful dream. The words used by Khalil Gibran in the poem are to describe “love” and its power.

2. The analysis of “love is a magic ray by Khalil Gibran” from the forms.
a. The analysis through structural devices has some processes. It is from illustration, repetition and contrast. Unfortunately, the writer does not find the words that show contrast and repetition, but Khalil Gibran explains it through illustration from the word “love is a magic ray”. It illustrates how love is emitted from burning core of soul that gives illumination surrounding the earth.

b. The last analysis of poem from the forms is through sense devices.
Metaphor
The word “Love is a magic ray” is called as metaphor since it implies the comparison between “love” and “a magic ray”. It shows that Khalil Gibran is a great poet; the power of the words he used shows how he is rich of diction. The use of word “a magic” to describe love shows that Khalil Gibran totally believe love is like the supernatural power (magic). The second word is “ray”. Do you know why Khalil Gibran uses “ray” to describe love it is because “ray” has great ability from the very tiny to be bigger and stronger light.

Simile

The use of word “as” enables the comparison between life and a beautiful dream. This shows that Khalil Gibran wants to show love can make life become a beautiful dream. The good diction shows the creativity of the poet.

Love One Another
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart.
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
By Khalil Gibran

1. The analysis of “love one another by Khalil Gibran” from the content.
  Respect
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Even though we love each other, but we should not force our will to others. The words “not a bond of love” clearly states about respect. We should respect one another. The great Gibran describes that love one another means that giving a chance one another to do anything. We may love somebody, but they still have privacy and freedom to do something.

The analysis of poem from the forms is through sense devices.
Personification
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart.
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
Those are the example of the use of personification. This is how Gibran creatively uses figurative languages as the right way to make the poem sound beautiful. “The hand of life” does not mean that life has hands but the people who have love on their hearts. “The pillars of the temple stand apart” is used to describe that we may stay away but we should still support one another. The oak tree and the cypress” do not grow in the shadow but it means that they grow not support each other.

Song of the Rain
I am dotted silver threads dropped from heaven
By the gods. Nature then takes me, to adorn
Her fields and valleys.

I am beautiful pearls, plucked from the
Crown of Ishtar by the daughter of Dawn
To embellish the gardens.

When I cry the hills laugh;
When I humble myself the flowers rejoice;
When I bow, all things are elated.

The field and the cloud are lovers
And between them I am a messenger of mercy.
I quench the thirst of one;
I cure the ailment of the other.

The voice of thunder declares my arrival;
The rainbow announces my departure.
I am like earthly life, which begins at
The feet of the mad elements and ends
Under the upraised wings of death.

I emerge from the heard of the sea
Soar with the breeze. When I see a field in
Need, I descend and embrace the flowers and
The trees in a million little ways.
I touch gently at the windows with my
Soft fingers, and my announcement is a
Welcome song. All can hear, but only
The sensitive can understand.

The heat in the air gives birth to me,
But in turn I kill it,
As woman overcomes man with
The strength she takes from him.

I am the sigh of the sea;
The laughter of the field;
The tears of heaven.

So with love -
Sighs from the deep sea of affection;
Laughter from the colorful field of the spirit;
Tears from the endless heaven of memories.

By Khalil Gibran

  The Sacrifice
I am dotted silver threads dropped from heaven
By the gods. Nature then takes me, to adorn

This poem is like an analogy where Gibran takes places as the Rain. The rain has a lot of function. “Nature then takes me, to adorn . Her fields and valleys”.

The Wisdom
I emerge from the heard of the sea
Soar with the breeze. When I see a field in
Need, I descend and embrace the flowers and
The trees in a million little ways

Through this stanza, Gibran wants to describe that when the trees, field, flowers and other alive creature need the rain (I), the rain come and give a life for them. Make them alive, strong and beautiful.

2. The analysis of “song of the rain by Khalil Gibran” from the forms.
a. Khalil Gibran explains illustration from the entire stanza in the poem since the poem uses analogy”. “I” here means as Khalil Gibran in which his view point is as the Rain. It illustrates how the rain is really important for other creature.

Gibran describe the contrast by this word “The heat in the air gives birth to me, But in turn I kill it,” It means that there are mutualism symbiosis where the heat of air give advantage for the creation of the rain but then the rain will make the heat of air cool down.
Furthermore, the repetition occurs on the use of “I” as the first person who Gibran take a part as the rain.

b. The last analysis of poem from the forms is through sense devices.
Simile
I am like earthly life, which begins at
The word “I am like earthly life” is called simile since it implies the comparison between “I” and “earthly life”. The use of word “like” enables the comparison. This shows that Khalil Gibran wants to show I (the rain) can be earthly life. The good diction shows the creativity of the poet.
