Poetry begins with reading the words of the poems
Poetry has a reputation for needing special training to appreciate it. In the classroom, poems were often taught as if they were riddles. We were taught that poetry is inherently "difficult" and that it makes meaning by hiding meaning.
Real progress begins when we get literal with the words in the poem. Pick a word that you find interesting in the poem, and start to investigate that word.
