    "'CHRIST of the Andes,' Christ of Everywhere," Christ of Everywhere by Henry Van Dyke

    Christ of Everywhere

    "CHRIST of the Andes," Christ of Everywhere,
    Great lover of the hills, the open air,
    And patient lover of impatient men
    Who blindly strive and sin and strive again, --
    Thou Living Word, larger than any creed,
    Thou Love Divine, uttered in human deed, --
    Oh, teach the world, warring and wandering still,
    Thy way of Peace, the foot path of Good Will!

    Spenser's Ireland-Interesting poem though many allusions escape me.

    A bit long but very helpful analysis:
    "Perhaps the most subtle and articulate statement of Irish-America's perception of itself and its ambivalence occurs in Marianne Moore's "Spenser's Ireland," a meditation on Ireland and the Irish and on their influence upon a person who shares with them only the most tenuous of cultural and biological bonds."

    re: "allusions" - me too The analyses you linked to helped immensely. Sometimes poetry is a type of mental gymnastics written by the poet that rely on a body of knowledge that the casual reader (me) on first impression is not privy to until further researched... I have found this to be true in studying The Wasteland most especially.

    re: ""I have always aspired... "

    "The purpose of poetry is to remind us
    how difficult it is to remain just one person,
    for our house is open, there are no keys in the doors,
    and invisible guests come in and out at will."

    I love ARS Poetica ( https://www.poetryfoundation.org/lea...ms/ars-poetica ). I've attempted a disappointing few. My favorite of the genre, to date, is by Marianne Moore: Poetry which just happens to start "I, too, dislike it:..." http://www.blueridgejournal.com/poems/mm-poetry.htm with analyses here: http://maps-legacy.org/poets/m_r/moore/poetry.htm

    re: I agree with you. I think this is specially true of modern poetry. Older poems have references too, but, at least it seems to me, develop solid themes like "love", "death", "nature" or religious themes which usually can be recognized without much difficulty or parallel studies. With modern poems, special the experimental ones, one sometimes lands in a peculiar universe, where one has to feel more at home to understand what is going on. But that makes them particularly interesting, specially if one has a strong sensibility to guide one as you have.

    Yes, Marianne Moore "discusses" with much charm what she considers real poetry .

    Imagination by Margaret Alice- Now is this a poem or an essay or both?

    Good points... re:Imagination: I'm leaning to both.

    re: Sylvia's poem is incredible in the use of language.
