Has anyone read "on the pulse of the morning"?

If somebody has, please tell me the poet's visition of america and american dream.


Please read over the poem as if you weren't reading a poem -- that is, don't stop and pause at the end of every line. Read it as if it were a story, pausing only for commas and periods.

Then you should be able to come to your own conclusions about your assignment. Once you have written up your response, please re-post, and someone here will be happy to critique your work.

=)


I will try to read over it.
Thank you for your comments.
