I am just begining a self lead discovery of peotry. Over the past several
months I have read various authors and this poem is the one I find myself
going back to over and over agian. Taking the time to send yourself down
the path she creates for us in this poem will leave you renewed and
thankful to breath the fresh sweet air. Traveling with edna to the cold
grave and back puts all the little things in life in proper prosective.

As I am dealing with three family members who have been diagnosed as
Bi-polar, it seems to me that the Author was describing in very complete
detail a manic episode. The deep fall in and the climb back out.

I have turned to this poem in my darkest hour and it has brought me much
comfort and renewed my faith. I am also very suprised that other people
have not responded to it!

One might read this in the context of what is now happening in Asia as a
result of the tsunami...particularly the verse "a man was starving in
Capri"....
and particularly by those who question the expenditure of resources to help
those so terribly affected. How much nobler than those resources expended
on warfare...

Hard to believe that no comments are given after being viewed over 1500
times! In my darkest moments, I have referred to this poem and it has
helped me get through the night.....on more than one occasion. This poem
is special. It is wriiten from the gut wrenching process of someone who
has been on the brink on suicide...and has decided to give life another
chance. Truthfully, I would not be here today had it not been for this
wonderful poem.
