Fruits and breads are symbolize,as are head and heart.

timer Asked: Sep 20th, 2015

Question description

What does the heart symbolize in this poem:

"For your own good" they said,
And they gave me bread
Bitter and hard to swallow.
My head felt tired after it,
My heart felt hollow.

So I went away on my own road
Tasting all fruits, all breads:
And if some were bitter, others were sweet --
So I learned
How the heart is fed.
