    I`ve used this device for anticellulite massage. My hips look better after two months of using. I advise it to all women with similar problems. http: //www.bodytherapy-mb.com

    Argh! Webmasters! ...please get that 'a' out of the last line of 'One Art' (right before 'disaster') . Incorrect, and ruins the poem!

    I personally love Bishop's work and find it hard to believe that others find it difficult to comprehend. She paints such a clear picture, creating the a link between herself and the reader. This is evident through her intense eye for detail. She is truly a wonderful poet of our time.

    The poem Conversation is short but is very confusing and I don't think she really explains the meaning to the reader.

    I do not like her poem the fish. It is getting on my nerves because we have to write a paper on it and I am struggling.

Love Lies Sleeping

Earliest morning, switching all the tracks
that cross the sky from cinder star to star,
coupling the ends of streets
to trains of light.

now draw us into daylight in our beds;
and clear away what presses on the brain:
put out the neon shapes
that float and swell and glare
