What do you think the author is regretting? The author of “Regrets on the Way to an Airport� uses metaphors to stress the regret they feel. Write your own metaphor and relate it to a regret you have.

When I hear the line, "Nor raised a thousand voices with the stillness of my sigh," I feel that the author is regretting not standing up for something they were passionate for; or possibly being not all they could be or could have done. This regret is so strong that they are physically running away, to catch a plane at the airport and fly away from their regrets.

Regret is the turning of the tide- too swift to recall the action back, too strong to forget it.
I thing regret is one of the saddest emotions. It grabs hold of everyone at one point or another. We must learn to be like the willow, bendable so that we don't break when the stiff winds of regret wash over us.
