My Informed Decisions

When plotting out how to deliver this poem, there were a few significant actions I had to consider. I wanted to recite this poem in the manner which I interpretted it, which is a woman who was fondly remember her love from a long time ago and having stirred also sorts of girlhood feelings, drops to her knees as if she is talking to him. Another important action to consider for the poem was the proximity of the head in relation to the boy to whom she delivers her diatribe. The poem made me think that the speaker really admired him, like most women admire gems, so it is important to keep the head up, as if looking towards the heavens at this splendid boy. A third action I took into consideration to deliver my understanding of the poem, the clutching of my hands to my chest. In the last stanzas, the speaker becomes sort of misty for the boy, and childhood that are over. However, she still holds both of those parts of her life in great regard and with fondness. These are three of the steps I took in planning action for my oral interpretation.
