Warm Summer Sun

In this poem, Mark uses the realism to put in summery what a typical summer to him is. "Lie light, Lie light" Twain reuses the words to basically show us a sun setting. The poem Is a perfect example of realism due to the real examples of the summer environment. And when twain says goodnight to goodnight hes basically going to bed to start a new day.
