That's amazing. And a writer I don't know at all. Care to elucidate?

To be honest, I know very little about Valentine. The poem comes from the beginning of one of my favorite memoirs: STAY HERE WITH ME. I often read the poem when I'm feeling exasperated. The language gives me a jolt. My interpretation of the poem is that it serves as a kind of inspirational reminder of the importance, and the rewards of, trying to explain the world. It can apply to art, life, whatever. As you know, the pursuits for meaning in art often lead to more questions than answers.
Your post carries a frenzied hopelessnes, and I thought you may like the Valentine poem. Maybe it can help keep you steady, if just a bit.

Words always help. I'm too tired to sleep.
