"My whole attitude toward the World Trade Center
Changed overnight. I began to like the way
It comes into view as you reach Sixth Avenue
From any side street, the way the tops
Of the towers dissolve into white skies
In the east when you cross the Hudson
Into the city across the George Washington Bridge".
I like this particular poem not only because it is very literal, but because there is a story behind it. This poem reminds me of a story more than anything. To me this poem reprisented a feeling of loss, and maybe even taking things for granted. People should realize that this world is too short and nothing should be taken for granted. The main message that i got from this poem is that you need to appreciate the things that you have while you have them, because you never know when they will dissappear.Posted by SarahLodzsun at January 30, 2006 01:29 PM
