His contention was expressed lyrically and with passion in The Souls of Black Folk that he wrote in 1903. His

In the world of Housman’s poetry,

Music is central to my life. Without music, the world would be naked, cold, and quiet. Music can set the rhythm for a long day of work, the mood for a date, for a party, for your whole life. It can wrap you in a blanket of comfort when you are lonely, or inspire you when you are down. Music is a vehicle for expressing love, telling a story, or showing happiness. My love for music has grown immensely throughout the past few years and continues to grow without bounds. Playing musical instruments,

However, in today’s society it offers a comical and conceivably ingenious if not simply creative method of wooing a fine, honorable lady into your bed. In overview, the poem is set with a young lady and her suitor. Conveniently, just as this gentleman is attempting to convince the object of his affection to sleep with him, a flea comes along and proceeds to bite him.

In me thou see\'st the twilight of such day As after sunset fadeth in the west, Which by-and-by black night doth take away, Death\'s second self, that seals up all in rest.
