    .......I like this stanza much...
    ~A Bog—affronts my shoe—
    What else have Bogs—to do—
    The only Trade they know—
    The splashing Men!
    Ah, pity—then! ~ (Report) Reply

    I think im getting the gist of this, a burdock clawed my gown, not burdocks blame, mine....went too near the burdocks den, i think the burdock is a thistly man (not literally but a man who gave her sharp pain or reactions)
    Bog i think maybe sheer lowest emotion disgust, and maybe (Men) in capitals is expressing the wider vein, as in Man which covers male female... her
    Tis minnows can despise.... a minnow used as bait (often) and is tiny i think the elephant was chosen for its stature as much as its eyes.... i think much of her writes, baring in mind they were written privately for her, i believe they are (the ones ive read so far) a painfilled complaint of being rebuffed...I do believe if she knew these were in print now, she might be more than horrified....

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
