    The poem divides into two; an introduction and the main section starting ‘Slave to a springtime passion for the earth.’

    Force is suggested both by ‘sturdy’ and the seed’s arched body, and the stress on ‘shouldering’ reinforces the impression of a tiny power that cannot be contained. (Report) Reply
