I like this poem....it was hard to interpret at first but after many
reading came to the conclusion that he is at a funeral of a dead woman, and
back in that time negro funerals had a tradition of serving ice cream at
these funerals.....if anyone has a deeper explanation please post it.....I
would love to read about this poem...
