I do really like this poem because it helps me to understand my own
feelings... any time I think like I need a piece of advice I just read

This poem was an excellent explanation of what love really is. I've been
doing research on love poetry, and this particular poem is one of the best.

I loved this poem it was really meaningful. The last part of the poem about
Isaiah totally made sense. I really loved it.

The poem is great, even though its a little straightforward..I agree with
the earlier comment about the last part, which somehow throws the poem a
little to the side..but all in all it's a heck of a good poem, I even gave
a copy of it to my girlfriend.

i really love this poem, when i read it, the poem really spoke to me. i had
to choose a poem to explicate for a speech class. this is the one i chose.
i hope i can analyse it and find out what jack gilbert really was trying to
say. i loved the poem. the only part that throws it off is the last part
about isaiah. but i truly did love the poem.
