Burden has so many negative connotations and the poem seems to be about much more pleasant things. Burden clashes with the poem in that sense. |
The part about abstaining from Dick and Bush seems a bit heavy handed here as well and comes out of no where in context. I would have liked to see some build up to it rather than finding an obvious political slogan stuck in the middle of a pastoral poem.
After reading the poem a second time, I liked the double spacing and how it slowed the rhythm of the poem down.

At frist it seem you got off to a slow start, but you seem to pick up the pace and move smoothly in making your point. The heat or wear of our two men that weigh on us like a anchor never escapes us. You woven in just life goese on as these two screw us over with gas prices. Good work!|

This was very peaceful and made it easy to go back and reminisce about these things. Around here people can't even sell lemonade anymore. There was someone with a cart that was trying to make a living and got mugged doing it. It's really sad. But anyway, back to the piece here...This was very thoughtful and I love the idea of just leaving the burdens somewhere out there and just taking a nice deep breath of life. Great job!|
