Comments about Hal Caufield
The Irony Of Love
Irony is a literary or rhetorical device.
The essayist Henry Watson Fowler wrote:
“any definition of irony
—though hundreds might be given,
and very few of them would be accepted—
must include this,
that the surface meaning
and the underlying meaning of
what is said are not the same.'
He left out that any definition of
Irony must include that it is cruel.
I never understood
The meaning of irony
Or how cruel it can be,
Until you told me,
That though you may love me,
You find it difficult to
Hear the words
“I love you” from ...
I Want To Paint You
I want to paint you.
Not to achieve immortality
For you or me
By the exquisiteness of your portrait.
But because, as impossible as it may seem,
You do not know how beautiful
I want to hold before you
