  • POEM: One Art by Elizabeth Bishop (12/26/2015 4:24:00 PM)

    What's surprising to me is that so many people interpret the line: 'I lost my mother's watch' as an actual 'wristwatch/pocket watch/timepiece'. I have always wondered if Bishop intended 'watch' as in 'watchful eye/ one that watches over her child' because her mother was gone from Bishop's life when Bishop was only a small child. She lost her mother watching over her- hence, 'lost her mother's watch'.
