Forgetfulness is like a song
That, freed from beat and measure, wanders.
Forgetfulness is like a bird whose wings are reconciled,
Outspread and motionless, --
A bird that coasts the wind unwearyingly.

Forgetfulness is rain at night,
Or an old house in a forest, -- or a child.
Forgetfulness is white, -- white as a blasted tree,
And it may stun the sybil into prophecy,
Or bury the Gods.

I can remember much forgetfulness.

Crane writes in a more serious fashion compared to Billy Collins poem, "forgetfulness".
Crane writes with metaphores for forgetfullness, and compares lack of movement to memory. Memory being in a progressless state, has created a moment of confusion that the victim can not comprehend, "And it may stun the sybil into prophesy,".
"i can remember much forgetfulness" is irony in it's own. yet the meaning and purpose for writing it can be vague. I could possibly mean about a time(s) when he found himself in that state of mind where he could not remember a fact needing recalling.
"Or bury the Gods" most likely is a metaphor for everyone. that no one escapes the wrath of forgetfulness....
what was i saying?
