Kubla Khan Tough-O-Meter

By Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Tough-O-Meter

(5) Tree Line.

This poem falls right in the middle on the Tough-O-Meter. It's not going out of its way to make things hard for you, but there are a lot of tricky words and strange images to wade through before you can really start to feel like you've got your head around it.
