    Welcome to the forums.

    The first thing to do is to read about RLS's own childhood and link the content and emotions of the poems to his experience at that time.

    Once you have done that, you can give us some idea of what you think the poet was saying and we can then enter into a discussion. We do not aim to do your thinking and writing for you.

    This is good advice. Even a native speaker cannot know for sure what a complex poem is about. Just understanding the words is not enough, because poets try to give deeper meaning to them. The explanation we give may not be what the poet actually intended.
