I found this poem an wanted to know if any of you out there have an opinion on it, or can explain to your thoughts to help me understand it.
                       *thanx*    

             The river of sad-no-more

Flowing into the stream of suffer-not
Past the forest of shed-no-tears
Through the valley of heal-my-pain
Along the banks of hurt-me-not
Down the hill of rescue-me
Flows the river of sad-no-more

This is really just a metaphorical work representing the author's desire to step out of a life of drudgery and "Be Happy"... It's a good philosophy....

Sweetchild

The  writer of this has cleverly depicted the anti-sad references in this piece as real places, tangible and therefore reachable goals that lie on the banks of sad-no-more, depicted as another real thing, a river or stream. What he or she is trying to say is that to be sad-no-more you have to go through or experience all the places on the way.

OR

The writer deems that these goals are just fairy-tale places that are unreachable and pure fantasy.

OR

It can mean anything you want it to mean, thatís one of the great things about reading poetry, you can use your own meaning or interpretation . Sometimes you can change that meaning or interpretation to fit your mood, I guess what Iím saying is that poems are open to your interpretation, they mean what you think they mean and sometimes mean different things to different people.

Hope you understand what I mean  


 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.
