Adrienne Rich is a brilliant poet, no doubt about that. But after reading a
lot of her work and seeing some biographical information on her the poem
really makes me wonder about her position when writing it. At one point, I
know, she was struggling with her husband. This poem leads me to believe
that her struggles with her husband are an interpretation so I almost have
a negative connotation to give the peice. The writing itself is awe
inspiring, but the content, I feel at least, could have a double meaning.

That is the truth. I, like her, have no idea what it means. Why don't you
explain it to us?

You respond to this poem as though it has made u realize something you've
never seen before. It enriches your life yet you offer no explanation why,
no evidence. So what that it makes the birds chirp for you? All you have
shown is that you don't understand the full meaning of the poem.....

After reading this very deep poem, it took my breath away. Every morning
before I eat breakfast or brush my teeth, i read this poem. It opens my
eyes to the blooming flowers and brightness of the sun. The birds then
begin to chirp and fulfill my ear drums. At this point of my morning I am
in heaven. Thank you
