    writing....


    "After analyzing a poem to understand it more specifically, we should have some time to read it again and appreciate the beauty of it."

    How about the sentence above?
    Is it grammatically right?
    If it is right, simple answer would be OK for your own sake.

    I find "to understand it more specifically" a little unnatural and I would say "we should take some time ..."

    Like bhaisahab, I don't know what you mean by your final sentence. Did you mean "If it's correct, you can save yourself some time by simply answering "Yes" to my question"?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
