Love's stricken "why"
Is all that love can speak—
Built of but just a syllable
The hugest hearts that break.

.: :.

This poem\'s key idea is about the persona of the poem\'s heart being broken. The first line, \'Love\'s stricken \'why\'\' asks, Why is there love? The second line, \'Is all that love can speak\'interpretation is suggesting that love is meaningless. The third line \'Built of just a syllable\' suggests love is no longer important anymore through the language use of \'just a syllable\' one syllable is meaningless; it doesn\'t matter. The final line is more meaningful and makes the poem make sense, \'The hugest hearts that break\', the alliteration of \'hugest hearts\' emphasises the power love has over people huge can be contrasted to the phrase of the previous line, \'just a syllable\'. The many \'hearts\' also symbolises that love not only affects one person, it affects many.
