This poem is incredibly simple on the surface. But in reality it speaks
huge amounts on life, love, and how the world is reflected back on us.

I think this poem has more meaning to it that goes beyond what the eye can
see and i think it means that he can see beyond what anyone else see in
the girl.

i have found what you are like
the rain,

(Who feathers frightened fields
with the superior dust-of-sleep. wields

easily the pale club of the wind
and swirled justly souls of flower strike

the air in utterable coolness

deeds of green thrilling light
with thinned

newfragile yellows

lurch and.press

-in the woods


And the coolness of your smile is
stirringofbirds between my arms;but
i should rather than anything
have(almost when hugeness will shut
your kiss

Unfortunately the version of this poem presented on this website is
actually the incorrect layout (it is left justified).

The original poem was staggered in places and the style he was noted for
was this staggered 'ad hoc' style. It's a shame this website has butched
the style he was known for.

i read this poem over and over and all i can think about is that it has
something to do with true love and not giving up on the idea of finding
your soulmate. this poem is full of hope.
