Two little whos is a short yet meaning full poem. It tells the story if how
who little children not unlike Hansel and Grettle. they came to the hill to
receive a pale of water and came back getting hurt and not having any water
at all.

To read a grea amount of imagery seems inane, of course their always pairs
of males and females in any
society since recorded time. The fact that is the most stiking is
implication is that the the male and female who are uninitiated from the
beginng to the end that is the important point.

This poem reminds me the biblical passage of Adam and Eve. The innocent
love may be read as a pure love before the acquired experience (a sort of
experience as described by William Blake) and free of any feeling of
fault. A transcendental love that hovers over the flesh limitations.

of StarWars.

This poem reminds me of another by ee cummings whose first line is "maggie
and milly and molly and may went down to the beach to play one day" or
something similar and equally sweet.

A feeling of atemporary youth, atemporary love, before being born into the
"grown up", "the known", the perishable.
About the potential ecxeeding by far the reality.

A little bit like the youths on Keats` Grecian urn.

This poem most deffinitely captures the innocence of children! Children
are truly innocent until they're shown into the world of corruption and
