I was analyzing this poem for English class, and it has become a favorite
of mine based on my interpretation thus far. Of course, everyone here has
different interpretations, different idease about the history behind the
poem, etc. Based on the content of my literature textbook and my own
interpretation, I can assume I've analyzed the poem correctly, and I could
easily write a few paragraphs to show you all my point of view, but I doubt
that would do much good - someone would just tell me I was wrong. I think
most poems are meant to be read and understood differently by different
people - and everybody is entitled to their own opinion.

whew...Okay...now that I've said all that - Everybody have a nice day:)

... is apparently poor, and while his psuedo-bulgarian friend did
apparently write this biography the question is still begged; who the
blazing hell needs even the faintest interpretation for work as worthless,
obvious, hallmark, and hokey as that of the late robert frost. this poem in
particular means nothing to any human being except 12 year old ostrasized
boys, pregnant teenagers, and 43 year old balding male who have just
recieved a minor promotion at a supermarket downtown and need a poster to
hang over the hole in their new office wall that will, according to
corperate, "inspire the staff towards meeting goals and a strong work
ethic". in closing i would suggest that john mark the third catch a train
to chester at night and attempt to climb the old city wall so that, by the
rest of the worlds good fortune, some soul might mistake you for a welshman
and shot you to death with a crossbow. cheers.

Hi Chesneva, Joe told me about this website. I didn't know that you would
be on it. I liked you interpretation. I've never heard one like it by
someone who hasn't read your biography, so I thought it was pretty cool. It
really captured the essence of the poem. By the way, who is this Jan G. who
you're talking to? Is she part of the group? She sounds intelligent from
the part I read that she wrote.

I can hardly believe that Jan G. of Germany could be such a confounding
moron. You obviously have no idea who this "Joodie" is, or you would never
talk to her in such a way. And why are you so rude to me? I'm a
professional writer and I know what I'm talking about! And I am not
sarcastic! So what do you have against her for being Bulgarian?? By the
way, xenophobia is the fear of strangers, and that is not what Joodie
called you. She said that you don't like Bulgarians in particular. I don't
think I cuold trust you because you pay no attention to detail. Judging by
your writing skills, you must be between the ages of, oh, say 11 to 22.
Second of all, why would anyone want to impersonate you? I think you
apologized and then wanted to change what you said, so you acted like
joodie impersonated you. You are crazy!!! You should respect Joodie for
knowing the German tongue, anyway.

P.S. Joodie wrote the biography!!! She knows what she is talking about! You
don't! By the way, judging by looking at yourself in the mirror, I think
you would find that you are a troll of a certain sort. Bah!
P.S.S. You misspelled "address." Instead you put "adress."

My apologies to Joodie and John Mark III. You guys were right. This poem
really is based off that biography. Sorry guys I was mistaken. I hope no
one was misled by my false information. I guess now we can all let go and
take a breath.

Jan G. from Germany
