I discovered Crane's poetry my first year of teaching, and he has become my
favorite poet and this is my favorite poem. It expresses the longing we all
have to be known and understood, despite our "wooden" attempts at
communication. If we can find just one person who understands our halting,
unbeautiful song, singing becomes worthwhile.
