Could someone please explain Charlotte Smith poem "on being cautioned against walking on a headland overlooking the sea" ?

or can you tell me where I can get explanations to poetry which I find very difficult to understand. thanks

I don't know this poem and cannot find it online, so it must be copyrighted.

Here are some websites that can help you deal better with poetry assignments:



You may or may not be assigned to write an explication of a poem, but this site is still helpful in the "how to read poetry" points it makes.


Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. This poem is an anthology "Breen, Women Romantic Poets" if you can find that book:
