Cleverness or accident?
Struck immediately by the use of the letters e-r-o-s in every line except the third where love appears twice. Pain seems to be taken to get the letters of his own entire name into the short poem(Emerson is Men eros anagram). However I am not sure there is otherwise anything significant or particularly rigorous in this exercise but it does explain the forced strangeness of the cute economy.

I found this poem very economical...but quite banal. Tranquil in a way...very touching and somewhat...transative. You are an exquisite author of your soul. You are my hero. I LOVE YOU

this poem is describing how although, short and seemingly simple, love is thrown and miss used by men and gods as well. this poem is basically Eros, the god of love, teaching of his excistence and purpose.
