Joy affects me much more than sorrow.

This poem has amazing images. I think this poem speaks to conditions of
the time and coping methods. Difficult times taught many "how" to deal
with sadness and grief. If difficulties are the norm, we're used to
dealing with them. So when something joyful happens, it throws us for a
loop. This poem reminds me in many ways of TS Eliot's "The Waste Land."
