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.
