Charlie, you have done excellent work in explaining the plant images 
on the first stanza. But have I missed something? What about the 
mandolin and cicadas and locked in pet of stanza two? Has someone 
explicated this?  Have I missed it?

And how do we explicate "some cloud of witness" in stanza three?
