Analysis and comments on Eleventh Hour by David Lehman

Comment 1 of 1, added on September 16th, 2005 at 1:31 AM.

The message of hope and survival is so strong that I can feel it so deeply
from within. Mr. Lehman uses profound language to express it all. One of
the things about it is that it separates ordinariness of idea from all
other written poem that I've seen that it is so concise.A powerful poem
that made up of fewer words. Each word must be the right word and precisely
chosen for its exact meaning (denotation) and to its relativity or
associated meanings (connotation). The difference between the right word
and the almost right word, Mark Twain said, is the difference between the
lightning and the lightning bug. This deserves 'same attention.
