Yet Do I Marvel
(5) Tree Line
"Yet Do I Marvel" is definitely a poemy poem. We've got a traditional form, a strict rhyme scheme, some funny sounding syntax to keep the lines in iambic pentameter (check out "Form and Meter"), allusions to Greek mythology, a meditation on the nature of God's mind, and all of it packed into fourteen lines. So while this poem is awesome, it takes take a little bit of time to unpack. But once you trek the complicated formal terrain of this poem, you'll too be marveling at what's waiting for you at the end.
