"Another Poem" is arranged as four quatrains divided by a couplet. The rhythm has a gentle lilt to it, not unlike that of a lullaby. Many words in the poem begin with the letter "s," resulting in many a soft susurrus throughout the poem. The theme is sentimental, but, speaking as the father of a little girl, entirely appropriate.
