There will come soft rains

“There Will Come Soft Rain” from the poem to the film was about the after math of a war. In the reading by Ray Bradbury the house being empty but voice is speaking as if theirs a family in there, living time by time with announcements. From 7am to 7am the next day the house has gone through its daily routines and had multiple functions, silence within the empty house was the norm, but having a response was the issue. “Who goes there? What’s the password?” and, getting no answer from lonely foxes and whining cats, it had shut up its windows and drawn shades in an old maidenly preoccupation with self-protection…” (Bradbury, Ray. There will come soft rain. 2). The house reacted in a frantic manor towards the animals because it’s used to no one being there. “Then again when the dog had came along later on Behind it whirred angry mice, angry at having to pick up mud, angry at inconvenience. “. It became a big scene for the mice knowing that they had to finally do some work. It’s equivalent to knowing that you work a quite shift and then someone comes along asking for directions to the nearest train station is such as myself. With the poem by Sara Teasdale it has a connection other than on Page 3. “Since you express no preference, I shall select a poem at random.” Quiet music rose to back the voice. “Sara Teasdale. As I recall, your favorite…. ” even during the war that left that area abandoned, I think Mrs. McClellan knew the truth that nature would win in the battle against man.

“Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree
If mankind perished utterly;
And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone. ”

when it came down to it no one was left and time still went on with a break of a new day ,with spring over the horizon. The film kind of summed it up but the difference was that the house destroyed itself and it was in the winter time. Which showed a different field that I hope to understand.
