    Elegy of innocence and youth.

    Some things are hard to understand, but still, life drudges on.

    He has the courage to write what might not be palatable to some but look how he masters the art of writing: Shall I let pray the shadow of a sound
    Or sow my salt seed
    In the least valley of sackcloth to mourn

    It would probably be challenging to even many mature poets too...
