Poetics 1

I like to read poems. I have read the poems of the early 20th century. Of course, the almost all of the poems are written by Koreans. At that time, Korean was under the big trouble, so many poets could not write their poems freely. The government inspected all of the writings. Therefore, the poets wrote many symbolic poems. A word could have several meanings. A sentence could be understood in different ways. I am interested about that. For this object poem assignment, I would like to choose a common object that we can see everywhere and anytime. Then, I would like to put some surprise and deep symbols to it. That was not easy because I should focus on to the object. Too many or too strong symbols can cover the main object. I worried about that part very much, and I have revised the poem several times. However, the more important thing is the sympathy with readers. If nobody know my intentions, that would not be fun.
