Simple things are always the most pleasant.I read this poem many times and I think it is written beautifully because we seldom come across a poem that marries simplicity in form with depth in meaning. It is the kind of poems that speak to the minds and tingle the hearts with a mild tone of sorrow.
Hughes makes the world real. We can talk about stratification or xenophobia all we want but we'll never really know how it feels. And I think he bring something to us in his poetry. And I certainly adore that about him
I read Hughes's poem 'Snail' when I feel like noone knows who I am and it makes me feel so much better. I also like his poem 'Little Green Tree' because it makes life seem so much more fun! Thank-you for being so good to me Hughes.
