This poem is about two people who talk. There are homilies in this poem
that make the reader think that it is deep and philosophical when it is
not. If the reader reads this poem without being biased or drawing
conclusions from what he/she thinks, then this poem is about two people who
talk when they are passing by; when being a critic, one must not put
his/her own feelings into the poem, and the homilies in this poem make the
reader do that.

"Meeting and Passing"

The poem is, of course about love, but the pivot and keep point is in the
word "para-sol". Under her umbrell the speaker is also beyond(para) his
self/soul(sol). He sees himself outside himself; he is transfigured into
some inexpressible effigy - a kind of pure experience in the state of
estatic love, which is hinted on in the less than two but more than one.

The final couplet is the fleeting of the relationship, the passing moment
of love, and the concept of passing by a gravesight: death. Love and Death
intersect, as they do in their absolutes, and as they do in complete
arousal, recalling the para-souls as one soul, call it World-Soul if you
