I have read this over and over, I still do not follow, not sure what it means. To me this is good.
If I was studying English Literature and this was a poem brought up in class, we could pick the bones out of it for the whole semester. This poem is that good. It is one of those you need to read aloud, but try not to do it in that deep 'The Raven' commentary if you can. You feel the pace quicken the voice deepen as you read. Then the last 2 lines leave a pause in your own little reality, as you ponder. This poem is THAT brilliant. I wish I could give out 20 points. (10 points)
The elegant, old English flare and style are truly
magical in this poem. To yearn for a person's love-
Its difficult to write this style and Mark captivated the readers
this week. Marvelous write!
