Poem by Sara Teasdale Out of the noise of tired people working, Harried with thoughts of war and lists of dead, His beauty met me like a fresh wind blowing, Cleaning boyish beauty and high-held head. Eyes that told secrets, lips that would not tell them, Fearless and shy the young unwearied eyes - Men die by millions now, because God blunders, Yet to have made this boy he must be wise. 1) What do the words/expressions "harried with", "high-held", "by millions" and "blunder" mean in the poem above? - The following question is not concerned with the poem above; however, it is of similar importance: 2) Which of these words are considered to be more formal (to be used in a poem): "rapidly", "promptly", "quickly" or "fast"?

Fyi: 'Fastly' is not a word.
