The Subtle Art of Poetry
I was introduced to poems in school textbooks just like you were, I reckon but not everyone pays heed to it, intentionally. At least, not when you are a student because you are made to anyway, for the scores. The brighter side of me being bright was, perhaps, that I took interest in poetry. I was pretty good at grasping the connotations, the rhyme schemes, the imagery and all that the artist implies through his poem. Certainly, I was not on point always, however my incapability to perceive through the poet’s eyes could not dishearten me.
