[“The Giver” SPOILER ALERT!!]

This is the second poem I’ve written which describes the final scene of a novel that I’ve read which had an emotional impact on me. In this case, that novel is Lois Lowry’s “The Giver”. If you’ve read the book, you may recognize that in this poem, I’ve made a couple of deliberate references to the book’s plot through my choice of words.

As usual, I’d love it if you’d share your thoughts,reactions, etc. on this poem via a comment on this blog post. However please be respectful of others who may not yet have read “The Giver” in its entirety, and thus may wish to discover the full meaning of this poem at their own paces.
