The symbolic part of this ppoem is of a child wandering away to find the
meaning of life or death. He has gone through stuff but just keeps on
trucking. The two birds represent the love of life. One bird goes missing.
Its about life love and death I think.

This poem shows a great amount of examples of what inspirations came upon
him. His idea of music is inspiring!

I like how in the poem nature and love makes the young boy realize that he
too wants to make songs/poems like the ones he begins hearing

Love is such a POWERFUL EMOTION and yet it can be so fragile.The presence
of your loved one can give you strength and the absence can drive you
insane and doubt your own existence !

I loved this poem back in High School when I read it and used it for a
forensics project. I also was moved by the pain and the power of the
wordage in this peice, almost at times like the waves themselves. One of
my favorites of his.
