Analysis and comments on Music I Heard by Conrad Aiken

Comment 1 of 1, added on September 1st, 2008 at 1:53 PM.

This is a beautiful poem and I'm glad you included it. However, one
correction needs to be made. The word "that" isn't in the first line of the
third stanza. That line should read thusly: "For it was in my heart you
moved among them". Try it, you'll see why. It's more rhythmic, it fits
better, and it's what Aiken wrote.
