The speaker in the poem Ode to My Socks compares the act of saving the socks to schoolboys that keep fireflies, as one of their much adorable count of captured creatures. The speaker also compares the act to learned men that collect all the sacred texts they came across, as they may be used in more important occasions where the audience will feel the worth of the sacred texts. The speaker also compared the act of saving the socks to putting them into a golden cage such that each day of admiration and appreciation would be interpreted as birdseed and pieces of pink melon, that is, adding value to the pair of socks with each day passed.
