Between the Lines


Analysis is inference,
and therein lies the difference,
'tween what I write
and what you read
Amidst unknowing ignorance.

To understand an author's work
You must follow the way they came.
But what you'll find,
and what I've felt
can never be the same.

The hounds of tracking may offer aid
in following where one goes
for one must track
by scent, by nose
for trails of sight
are lost in storms and snows.
