HUM16/B11 EE-1 HW1; 7/ 25 / 2016 TOPIC: BONSAI by Edith I. Tiempo 1 What does the speaker do to keep what she treasures in stanza 1? The speaker folded twice all the things that she love in order to fit in the box or a slit in a hollow post or in her shoe so that she can keep her treasures on it . 2 In stanza 2, what are some of the things that the speaker keeps? The speaker keeps all that she love that folds and keeps easy, like her Son’s note and his Dad’s one gaudy tie, a roto picture of a queen, a blue Indian shawl, and even a money bill. 3 What do these things symbolize? Her Son’s note symbolizes the love for her son, Maldon. Dad’s one gaudy tie represents the love for her husband, Edilberto K. Tiempo (Dad, because it is part Filipino couple tradition to call their husbands as dad, papa or tatay, etc., and to their wives as mom, mama or nanay, and etc.). The roto picture of a queen symbolizes the love for her daughter, Rowena. The blue Indian shawl represents her engagement date with her husband, her first winter in Iowa, and her last autumn in Denver. Lastly, the money bill symbolizes the first salary she got from Silliman University

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
