This poem seems very strange to me. It's scientific and feminine. The descriptions are beautiful and exact; however, the underlying meanings are differentiating. From one angle, it seems that the speaker could be God or simply a teacher, and the boy in the poem is his pupil whom he is trying to imbue a knowledge or value into. In the end, it appears that this knowledge was successfully passed onto the pupil; howeever, it did not effect his actions or personality since he proves to be quite static. Another angle leads to believe that perhaps there is a meaning of homosexuality in this poem. The speaker was trying to express his love to this boy, but the boy was unmoved. It seems to have a romantic sorrow in both cases. Regardless of the meaning, the poem is beautifully written and visually splendid.
