Love the reflection

I still don't get this poem, 10 years after the fact. WCW was an enigma.

Still, i totally love this treatment of the concept, and am glad that other people had this imagery stick in their head since high school as well

I haven't read that poem but you should submit it into the Joys of Text design competition :]

Mr. Raab

I think it's too late, I already submitted as a normal submission. I will e-mail threadless and see if they are willing to add it to the contest but Im not sure if they will

I hated this poem so much when I first read it in 9th grade because I didn't get it. Now I love it.

I do like the poem, and illustrating it was very clever.

I really like it, very clever. Does it need the word "upon" since technically the text is sitting on top of the wheel barrow? Either way, I like it, just wondering.

Mr. Raab

well I tested it without UPON, but it visually just didn't flow as well, so I decided to keep it

HOw did you know that this was my favorite poem???

I would like it better if you could find a way to represent so much depending upon the wheelbarrow besides actually using the words.

Overall it is a good idea though.

ldarroch

this is the only poem in the world i truly like... and your design captures why i like it so much.

We never covered this in school.... but I'm told that is abnormal.

I still don't get it.
