"The Act", written by William Carlos Williams, will captivate KaBloom's audience and draw them into considering, and then finally purchasing, your full range of KaBloom products. Williams writes, There were the roses, in the rain. Don't cut them, I pleaded. They won't last, she said. But they're so beautiful Where they are. Agh, we were all beautiful once, she said. And cut them and gave them to me In my hand. (1-8) In Williams's poem, you can just simply picture a scene. Imagine the most beautiful roses growing together glistening with the slightest bit of rainwater that has just previously fallen. There is a woman about to cut these roses from their picturesque natural environment. Another person, watching in complete dismay, begs the first woman not to cut the roses solely based on their true beauty in where they are. The woman, just before she cuts them, reply's with "Agh, we were all beautiful once." (6), and continues to cut them and hands them to the flustered second person. Using this literary wonder could be of great advantage to KaBloom, Ltd. Flowers are your main product and this poem completely embodies the beauty and elegance of fresh, vivid flowers, which is the main goal your company provides for its customers.
