Ah!  I just noticed, after posting my answer, that you are interested in the poem "One Art," by Elizabeth Bishop.  Can you let us know which line or lines you are interested in.

Sorry about the error -- the author and title weren't evident when I clicked on the question.

Thanks!  In order to answer this question, we would need to know which particular poem (or passage from a poem) you have in mind.  Your question doesn't deal with the meanings of the words "denotations" and "connotations," but rather with denotations and connotations in a specific poem.  Once you provide us with the passage or line from that poem you have in mind, we will try to help you.
