This is a challenging read for students. The first time I read the poem, they didn't really understand what was going on. It wasn't until I began actually drawing a sketch of each stanza and, as students responded to questions, we moved the poem’s speaker along his path that they began to understand the action of the poem and what the speaker was thinking. Once they understood, it was like a light came on and they got it! I definitely recommend doing drawings—I'm not an artist at all, and my pictures were hastily drawn while students were responding to questions, but this really helped them organize their thinking.
