    Prior to making a comment, perhaps reading a poet's PH biography might be beneficial.

    :)

    It shouldn't surprise me, but somehow it always does when
    I read comments posted about a poet/philosopher's work
    over a hundred years old with such harsh judgment!

    A psychiatric clinic for his refusal to become domesticated?
    Did we read the same poem?

    If Thoreau was alive he will be probably into a pschitryc clinic for his deny to become domesticated.

    Claire -

    The author of this poem, Henry David Thoreau, has been dead for 144 years.

    As such, I don't think he would mind if you put this poem up in your friendship group.
