After reading very first stanza of the poem I had already made an opinion about how I felt about the poem, but after reading the poem in its entirety, my opinion had changed. I see the poem as a mother’s plea for her daughter’s affection. Fraser doesn’t want her daughter to hate her. I was able to connect to this poem because there are certain things that my mother does that I don’t completely approve of or that I’m not happy with, and there are times when she can tell that I don’t want to deal with her at times and I don’t want her to think that I hate her, that’s completely not the case. I love my mother more than anything in this world and I know that all the things she does, she does them out of love.
