Read the poem at left. 
(This is one poem that would be very difficult to read aloud.)
  1. *What four words is it made up of? 
  2. *Why is it important that he used lower-case l's, rather than capital L's?
  3. *Why does he "mix up" the words, and arrange them the way he does? What's he trying to represent?
  4. Make up a title for this poem that does not start with the letter L.
