Very Dead Poet’s Society like. Love it! By the way, could you leave a
cenmomt on my blog Heather with the forum site again? I won’t publish
it. We got a bad virus that wiped out everything on my computer and I lost
my favorite sites. I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I want you to read this poem, and put your own thoughts to it. It's so
simple, it could have many meanings, and yet they all are going to be
coplex I can tell.
Perhaps he's trying to explain why people are the way they are. One
group of people understand themselves, and those like them. And yet, you
can't fully understand there ways unless you are them yourself? Like 'as
souls only understand souls.' we can only understand life if we have it. I
think Walt wants everyone to study aspect of life in every point of view. A
simple ode to wisdom, or perhaps more.
