      I had no idea what Fusiturricula meant or was....??? I googled it (and also read other classmate's annotations) and it's a type of sea snail. So a lullaby for a sea snail?? I am eager to read the rest of the poem with this information. Intriguing.

    1.  We'll build in sonnets pretty rooms;

      This is my favorite line of this poem. We as people, we as poets are build on sonnets.

    2. Call us what you will, we are made such by love;

      It seems the whole poem the narrator is so concerned with what his lover thinks of him, or what the audience thinks of him, or people in general. I find it interesting he's pointing out at this point "call us what you will." Seems ironic and that adds interest in my opinion
