Analysis and comments on Sea Shell by Amy Lowell

Comment 8 of 8, added on October 26th, 2009 at 4:34 PM.

I think this poem is really well written. Also, to me, it seems like she's
talking about the mysteries that sea shells hold, when you listen to them,
they ring//sing, whichever you prefer. All the mysteries the ocean holds,
and the sea shells telling them. No one will truly understand what the
ocean holds, especially with the past. We don't live there, but the sea
shells know.

This poem is great in his form and his content.It is obvious and simple and
reminds to everyone his childhood when one could listen to sea shells and
hear the words of the ocean...I adore it.

I absolutly love this little poem! It makes you think for a second, when
your on the beach and you pick up a sea shell and drop it into your pail,
where did it come from? What stories can it share?
