    I think the poem is about isolation. The white house and the island are literally the speaker's body. The thin sea of flesh is literally, his skin, the bone coast, his skull, with his mind inside. The flesh and skull create a physical barrier from the outside world that represents the figurative barriers between him and society. The poison or grapes represent bad things or good things that are in the outside world. The way the speaker is questioning is really quite immature, he is assuming that the hands and holds contain only poison or grapes, or that society contains only good or evil. However this is not the case, but since the speaker has been living in this mental isolation, he does not realize this. By wondering whether he should let in the stranger or welcome the sailor, the speaker is wondering whether or not he should try to end his isolation. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
