  • In his TedTalk (Links to an external site.), poetry professor Daniel Tysdal says that poetry is how we can express and respond to moments in life that set us “off balance,” including both celebrations and tragedies.

  • What is the speaker’s emotional response?
  • How can readers relate or understand the poem?
