    Curious about your assigned poem.

    Loved the dialogue of the two guitars

    "Upon a bank I sat, a child made seer". "Primrose" by Patrick Kavanagh

    "I seemed to have sensed also from an early age that some of my experiences as a reader would change me more as a person than would many an event in the world where I sat and read. "

    Enjoyed very much this poem and its aliterations, though I'm not sure I understood all of it. There is so much implied.
