Mid-Day Analysis



Author: poem of H.D. Type: poem Views: 8


The light beats upon me.
I am startled—
a split leaf crackles on the paved floor—
I am anguished—defeated.

A slight wind shakes the seed-pods—
my thoughts are spent
as the black seeds.
My thoughts tear me,
I dread their fever.
I am scattered in its whirl.
I am scattered like
the hot shrivelled seeds.

The shriveled seeds
are split on the path—
the grass bends with dust,
the grape slips
under its cracked leaf:
yet far beyond the spent seed-pods,
and the blackened stalks of mint,
the poplar is bright on the hill,
the poplar spreads out,
deep-rooted among trees.

O poplar, you are great
among the hill-stones,
while I perish on the path
among the crevices of the rocks.

.: :.

Every where that I have read so far has pointed to this poem referring to H.D.'s feeling of inferiority as a woman poet. I can't see this; all I see is that the speaker is a tree who is being torn down by man but still sees hope in the strong poplar tree.
