    It is remarkable how a poem will just reach out and put its hand around your throat and make you gasp at its beauty and its truth. (Report) Reply

    There is an uncontrollable drifting, a yearning, an unknowing - all encapsulated in one leaf's wayward journey. The images throughout summon a deep solitude. (Report) Reply

    Seems a ship is like the leaf of a poplar because the sea is so big and the ship is so small; so many reasons why It trembled so, ... It trembled so. (Report) Reply
