    Poem is rich in imagery, depth and overall dimension. It is multi-colored, yet its message is as black and white as humanly possible. This poem has rhythm. I like her ABCB rhyme scheme, even though there is no metrical pattern. This is one of my favorite poems, and I believe one of her best. (Report)Reply
