I thought the poem was well written and very descriptive. I could actually hear the horses thundering hooves and i could also hear the silence of a world without an electric hum. Technology takes away from the social part of life, a simpler way of living. More joy and less fighting can be found in a simple world, more peace and calm. When everyone can take time to enjoy the company of one another, our society becomes a better place to live, and I believe Mr. Muir saw that too, and wanted to convey his message through his poem. I got the message, I hope others can too.
