Gorgeous. I have goosebumps.
I've known of this poem for ages, but for some weird reason have never actually read it until today. I really should make myself read more poetry, because I'm continually surprised to find that there are many pieces that I like. I think maybe it kind of frightens me a little because the meaning in many poems isn't overt. It dredges up memories of university courses where we had to tear apart poetry to get at the core of it. I wasn't always a fan of that. I do have some pretty great anthologies, though, that I need to dip into again. Thanks for the inspiration! :D
Gorgeous! So much imagery and emotion. :)
I'm glad you guys liked this one. It's one of my favorites :)
