    After you've come up with answers to these three questions, we'll be glad to comment on them.

  • Confused?? to the poem -

    Yes I have read it it didn't make any bit of sense

  • The writer by Richard Wilbur Poem -

    Sometimes if you read a poem aloud, it makes more sense. After you read a line, stop and see if you can reword it.

    MsSue gave away the answer to #1. Just LOOK at line 3 and what is the last word?

    Line 9 for the answer to question #2.

    After you've read the first 15 lines, you should be able to answer the 3rd question.
