Poem is a main power to develope our speech in speaking. It is a whole of
magical words that comes from our heart, it is like a love song's or music
that touch our feelings that we feel, it is a wide and artistic imagination
in one mind. Poem is a major and speacilly walking letters find the side to
side invention and never rest until to find the end but the words of one
poem has no end cause its like a rain,number,insects and other things that
we cant count on........

I think I really understand this poem. It gives more of a saying in the
readers point in view. And helps alot in my homework on sonnets.

Feeling the walls for the light switch; that is what I do with lot of
poems! Glad that the poet accepts it!! May be he recommends it?! - if
situation warrants?

This poem reminds me of AP english in high school. No tender hands, no
loving strokes, merely the precise surgery of autopsy.
