Admonitions To A Special Person Comments

Rating: 3.5
Watch out for power,
for its avalanche can bury you,
snow, snow, snow, smothering your mountain.

I've loved Anne Sexton for many years but I heard this poem for the first time only today on a podcast, The Paris Review's. Then not understanding some of the lines I looked it up. Thanks for posting Admonitions; A.S. gives me food for thought always.
