      Thanks for this wonderful illustration of a poem I used to teach. I always loved it, and I like to think my students did too. Many of them "got it" right away, adolescence being a time of feigned competence and quiet suffering for many. It's a great poem by a great poet, beautifully illustrated. Thank you!
