SummaryAdd a Summary
Its wonderful to see a great poem given a publication unto itself; others poems do not beckon for one's attention or consideration, so that re-reading is an easy decision and a pleasure. This poem is worth re-reading several times at least. The images are nice the first couple of times, but are distracting in later re-readings because they suggest interpretations to the reader.
