Poetry Thoughts

This poem is very heart moving. It struck me how much little things can
matter. I think that little things are very important. One little thing is
eating and drinking in class. I will never do it again.

I think the poem is saying that although the flower is ugly, it has to
potential of being something beautiful. Although the world in not a
beautiful place sometimes, it's still our world, and that's something
beautiful in itself.

This poem is a very powerfull poem. Ginsberg is saying that the world is
brain washed to think that this is a great yellow rose. When he explaned
this rose as a very ugly thin. Much like the world is looked at as very
beautifull, when if you take a look around it is very ugly. He is saying
that something needs to be changed.

This poem represents a dirty flower's spirit that is tough.But the deep
meaning I couldn't find out without the background.
