i think the poem lost really show his vast thinking side really one of his
early works, since then if you look at his other work it's far superior.
But indeed I have nothing wrong to say about the poem Lost.

I interpret it as he is trying to say that being alone can be scary. It can
give you a feeling of not knowing where you are or what is going on and
make you be afraid. but i probably suck at interpreting poetry, whatever

so, for my english poem, i chose to do Carl Sandburg becasue i liked the
name not even knowing who he was. but once i found this poem, it makes me
want to learn more about him. this poem means to me that he was alone on
one day and he heard a lot of noises and was still all alone.
