Mention some difference between The Photograph poem from class 11 and My Mother at Sixty Six poem of class 12.

Dear Student, 

​​​​​​The poem, 'The Photograph', is nostalgic. The poet has already lost her mother. She is recalling happy memories of her mother seeing a photograph. The happy memories of her mother smiling help her to overcome the sadness of her loss. In contrast, the poem, 'My Mother at Sixty Six' expresses the fear of the poet about losing her ageing mother. Instead of attempting to bring happiness into her mother's life, the poet is gripped by the fear of losing her mother.
