I need help selecting a poem that would be easy to write about. I am one of those people that need to be told what to write about (specifically.) So, I need a suggestion. I am looking for an answer like: How about (poem) by (author) because it addresses (theme). I am not looking for a thesis, just a suggestion to get me going!! I do not need anything more than a sentence...the poem must be before Jan 1819. Thanks!!!!
