Additional Notes The Poem consists of a Prologue and an Epilogue, three initial rhyming stanzas, two subsequent free-form blank verse stanzas, one concluding rhyming stanza and 17 specially selected pictorial images intended to enhance the metaphors and meaning of the Poem. The Poem itself is a deliberate combination of an Ode (a Poem in stanzas of varied length and form) and a Lyric Poem (a Poem characterized by brevity, compression and expression of feeling.) It adopts three literary devices - assonance, denotation and personification.
