Thread Name: Meaning of 'Weep for Jamie'?
Subject: RE: Meaning of 'Weep for Jamie'?
I think the definitive answer about the meaning of "Weep for Jamie" that there IS no definitive answer. I think sometimes we forget that oftentimes poetry is intended to have many meanings and to apply to many situations. We humans tend to demand specificity, and often the poet's intent is universality.
"Weep for Jamie" applies to many people I have encountered in life, in many different ways.
