The main idea (theme) is that you aren’t going to ever see a unicorn. The poem is nondidactic, telling a story about why we don’t see unicorns today, some may say it’s factual, and some may say its part of our belief. The poem was written in lyric form because it showed the feelings and emotions of more so the Lord and partially Noah. The poem is a myth, because (according to M. H. Abram) it tells a belief that we don’t follow anymore. Furthermore, it is a narrative poem, telling the story of why we don’t see unicorns anymore in a rhyming format. Personification is also used when the poem says the unicorns were hiding, playing silly games, kicking splashing in water, and looking up and crying. Those are things humans do. The poem is written in couplets that rhyme.
