4ef737. e2809cNo matter how far away from God youe28099ve gone, when you
sdruenrer your life to the Lord, a path is carved from where you are to
where you are supposed to be, and He puts you on it. If the path
youe28099ve been on is crooked, He will make it straight. If you are
headed in the wrong direction, He will turn you around. If you have come
to a standstill, He will get you moving. If you are going around in
circles, He will correct your course and cause you to arrive at your
destination. The simple act of giving your life to Him will immediately
put you on the correct path and aim you in the right direction. As you
take one step at a time, holding Gode28099s Hand and letting Him lead, He
will get you where you need to go.e2809d (From e2809cJust enough light for

Form, Wording and Style:
The way the poet wrote his name, the way he wrote the title of the poem,
the wording and punctuation reflect his love for new styles. The poem has
no punctuation marks at all. That may be done on purpose to keep the
pictures flowing with words, one after another.
The poet uses the sonnet form of 14 lines, but with different arrangement
of rhymes. Some of the rhymes are not perfect rhymes:
Others rhyme fully:
So there is a free choice in the rhymes of the sonnet.

The Theme: The theme of the poem is about death, but the poet expresses
that within the context of love and nature.

The words used reflect different pictures or images in every line of the
poem. One can imagine fruit hanging out from trees, but they are emerging
from eyes:

From each brave eye shall sprout a tree
fruit dangles therefrom.

After death man becomes part of nature:

Between my lips which did sing
a rose shall beget the spring
and virgins put the rose between their little breasts. His heart will be
pulsing through the ebb and flow of the sea.

So, death is expressed through natural scenes of: trees, roses, virgin
girls, flying birds and the sea.
One can feel the emotions of the poet through the natural images that he
can see. The romantic tradition is kept in the poem, but the new thing is
the use of syntax, the way of arranging individual words into larger
phrases and sentences.
