I asked my friend, Don Ruhl, the expert on the number seven, if there was a reason, besides the days of creation, that contributed to the symbolism of perfection or completeness. I can’t recall any other reason, offhand.
Today’s poem has two biblical allusions. Besides the days of the week, there’s a Revelation seven as well.
What other sevens can you think of? There’s a lot of them out there.
Of course, even without looking, you know how many lines today’s poem has.
