#WorldPoetryDay Understanding Our Favourite Childhood Poems As Adults
I had the poem If by Rudyard Kipling back in school, but then, I didn’t have the life experience to appreciate it. Today, on World Poetry Day, I would like to attempt to deconstruct the poem from my life experiences. I would have deconstructed more poems but I’ll leave that for next year. After all, to speak in a poetic sense, you can hold eternity in the palm of your hand. And I think I can cumulate all my life lessons by writing about this one gift to us all by Kipling.
