I had to memorize and analyze this poem in the 9th grade. It has become
dear to me. The key to this poem is in it's last two lines: pity me that
the heart is slow to learn what the swift mind beholds at every turn. How
many times have I followed my heart, despite what my brain was telling me,
only to be hurt? This poem so distinctly encapsulates the daily wonders
that we so appreciate but often miss. But missing these wonders is nothing
for those of us who follow our hearts over our minds in life, and that it
is a pity that our hearts often overwhelm what is so obvious to the mind.
Love over logic. Loss and pain which could be prevented if only we'd follow
logic, not our emotions.
