    Can someone explain about the these lines:
    For when dreams go
    Life is a barren field
    Frozen with snow. (Report) Reply

    I like how the poem addresses the concept of a life without dreams as an ultimatum of desperation. You can clearly see that the poet compares it to being a broken-winged bird, when either of those can't fly away. Very accurately penned, because a life without dreams would be aimless.
