Limen is the  threshold of a physiological or psychological response. In watership down a severe anxity had filled the rabbits after leaving their birth warren and beginning a new journey to a safer land. After running a long distance from their chief rabbits guards they decided to rest in a fern meanwhile dandelion  told a story and when it was finished they saw a lendri who was druling at them. Since they were not aware of  its danger the rabbits ran  whilst being lead by bigwig through the fern and came to a stream. When they had noticed that the lendri wasnt on their tail anymore they stood by the bank to regain some direction. 

 Bigwig then told hazel that was a nice surprise or was he expecting it when he decided to take them through the woods. Hazel realized from his tone of voice that bigwig would be troublesome but not a coward.And still be steady as long as he could stay clear of his way . In response hazel flattered him in acknowledging his speed and basic instinct. What bigwig didnt understand was that together as a group the rabbits should look out for each other and not question the overseer for not being aware. This was going to be journey for all and whoever could assist should do so.

In  101 Great American poems I choose the ‘ First fig’. When beggining a journey one knows that there is an end and it wont last long but t in the end I would reach  my destination. As in when the candle burns in both ends, it wont last because most resources are used at the same time. But what gives the light is important so is the purpose of the journey and we can choose to make the most of the journey or let it be dull. But when we have our companions around, the journey is made easier this decision is made clear in the beginning of the journey.  The response of the friends is to accompany. The limen is seen when we choose our companions and the reaction they would give to the thought.
