Nice, easy language and soothing rhymes make this poem a walk in the park. Heck, Sexton even repeats the syntax of stanza one in stanzas two and three! Besides a few oblique (and maybe obscure) references to witch hunts and the Inquisition, which might require a brief trip to Shmoop History for some explanations, "Her Kind" makes it pretty easy on readers.
