Your comment was rather baffling! Do you know that Anne Sexton was a Pulitzer Prize winning poet who committed suicide in 1974? Given that your comment was posted on 05-05-2000, I am wondering if you are under the impression that Sexton is an amature contemporary poet?

(1) Sorry about misspelling your name;

(2) I meant to type 05-05-2002 instead of 05-05-2000! My apologies once again!

it was a very interesting poem. i can see how it relates to her life. i've studied her for months now.

This poem was written to Anne Wilder, since Wilder asked her why Sexton contemplated suicide. Wilder did, indeed, mention that she loved the blades of grass; "i love living and the things and objects that are here on earth. like the blades of grass for example".
Good Poem
