Live poetry interpretation delayed!

 So, in preparation for my live, on blog, poetry interpretation (to be done in penance for our massacred library poetry section) I went out onto the internet to look for a super complicated, hard to understand poem. I knew the poem should be on the shorter side as I would hate to overtax the internet with too many words. The internet is so delicate in that way bully monsters can be. I moused around for a bit and William Blake came up a couple of times as sort of a challenging to understand poet. So I went out and found this poem: 

Ah Sunflower

Ah Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done;

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
