I discovered this poem in late middle school and in university even wrote a paper on it for my English class. Despite being my favourite piece of peotry I hadn't thought about it for at least a year or so....it had just been relegated to the back of my sub-conscience....until now.
Two Slant Trees
Tonight upon seeing it again I instantly felt all the same emotions as I did when I discovered it for the first time. The power of the written word is truly amazing and the power of poetry indescribable.
I hope it speaks something lovely to you.
Are there words (poetry or otherwise) that move you?
Somewhere in the depths of mum's storage shed is my English paper....I hope I can rediscover it again too. I'm curious to see this poem through the eyes of my 8-years-ago self.
