Read the following poem and analyze it for ideas, themes, and values that reflect the Puritan era. Be sure to ask the key questions as a guide for analysis. Passage: from a Puritan poem by Ralph Erskine And when the smoke ascends on high, Then thou behold'st the vanity Of worldly stuff, Gone with a puff. Thus think, and smoke tobacco. And when the pipe grows foul within, Think on thy soul defil'd with sin; For then the fire, It does require. Thus think, and smoke tobacco. And seest the ashes cast away; Then to thyself thou mayest say That to the dust Return thou must. Thus think, and smoke tobacco.
