The previous response is right on. The person who wrote it should start
her analysis right at the beginning of her comment. That is to say, she
has experienced this kind of situation. Well, how does it feel and what
does the teacher mean, and how the pupils? Place yourself in this precise
context that the poem provides and let your imagination be the guide. One
question you might ask yourself is: What ddoes the speaker/student learn
from the class experience?

Well, I have to analyze this poem for class and I have no idea why he wrote
it!I mean, yes I feel like this all the time in school, total boredom when
a teacher tries to show you the bigger picture of something that is so
simple! But, none of his other poems are like this, they all talk about the
land, or the people on it. Why this poem, to think or relate to teens who
feel this way. Were u thinking back to your younger years or were you
speaking about someone you know? I have no idea, and I've researched but
came up with nothing. so please philip, where ever you are, tell us why u
write your poems. Im young and not too smart, so I dont know how to analyze
very well. If someone else knows the reason behind this poem, please tell
ME! thanks for listening and write back, sam
