    This touches the soul with innocent but resilient hands of the child. The man is clearly endeared by the small girl. It paints such a beautiful image. A magically crafted narrative |

    I beleave this poem is about holding on to the one you love even after they stop breathing. THe little girl is still close to her brother and sister. (Report) Reply

    This is my favourite wordsworth poem, it's so powerful and moving. I showed it to one of my friends who'd lost a loved one and he thought the same as well. (Report) Reply

    I got a book of Wordsworth when I was 13. This was the first poem in the book. I cried. It has remained my absolute favorate ever since. Almost 30 years later it can still make me cry. The innocense, the since of never losing a loved one because they are still there, in heart, soul and mind. This poem never diminishes its power. (Report) Reply

    what can I say but what a wonderful poet. I cry when I read this. I can imagine this child telling somebody about her brothers and sister. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
