Question Analysis



Author: poem of May Swenson Type: poem Views: 20


Body my house
my horse my hound
what will I do
when you are fallen

Where will I sleep
How will I ride
What will I hunt

Where can I go
without my mount
all eager and quick
How will I know
in thicket ahead
is danger or treasure
when Body my good
bright dog is dead

How will it be
to lie in the sky
without roof or door
and wind for an eye

With cloud for shift
how will I hide?

This poem clearly is a question of what will happen when the should leaves the body. The body is its house, its hound, and horse. It is the souls residence, senses and mobility, without it will the soul ever be the same? How shall he function without his body? This poem deals with the question of what will happen when the soul and the body part. Come on people its not about a freaking flea and a dog. Use your brain!

This poem is comparing the body to the house, the horse, and the hound. But i believe it is mostly asking about what after death is like.

I think this poem is a comparrison between the authors life and the life of a flea after its host/loved one has died

You missed this: the flea has died in a \"cloud\" of insecticide that was sprayed by the speaker, who noticed the little insect as she was carrying the dog to bury it in its last house--the dog\'s grave.
The dead flea then \"shifts\" to a ghost-flea spirit that is now capable of seeing bigger things to bite--like horses or even people But, the flea spirit wonders, where will he \"hide\" as a ghost flea, and will he be able to get his meals as a ghost. He\'s scared that he won\'t find meals at all, because he won\'t know how to hide.

I was thinking that the speaker was just simply wondering about what happens to the body after death. It never even crossed my mind that the speaker could be a flea...I LOVE that idea. Good work.

everyone here is getting this completely wrong. Yes you could take it as a detailed explenation about life but that is way to far out. The simple fact is that this is a very litteral poem. This is the life of a flea who has lost his house/dog. this dog or hound is also his transport and now that it is dead the flea needs to find a new home and through this relization the flea understands that there is a high chance that he will die. BAM! poem explained and i didn\'t need to use extremely deep and emotional details to explain it. To be fair though this is a poem and can be interpreted however you please. I just believe that i am right.

I think she\'s is saying she knows her spirit will live on. Everything she compares her body to are things that are difficult to loose but you can survive loosing. She also says \"How will it be to lie in the sky...\" not will I lie in the sky. She\'s wandering what it will be like.

I\'m wandering why the last line is \"with cloud for a shift how will I hide?\" If its her soul in the sky who would she hide from? She grew up in a morman household. Was she ashamed of something in her life and wanted to hide from god?

I think the poem means that, May Swenson, the author, is talking about how she is losing everything. I think it also means that she is talking about sereration of body and soul.

the quote explains not only the seperation of body and soul but where they meet. it questions where the soul will go when its body has gone and if your soul is tethered to your body. if your body is done away with is your soul really gone? does your body contain your soul or do they simply work together nondependent of one another? and if the soul does not depend on the body where does it go? do we ever truely die or simply leave our body? or, if body and soul are dependent of one another where do we go? does it end? do we simply end our existence? this quote asks what our soul would do without a body, when it (the soul) still continued to be.

My significant emotional experiences lead me to believe that the speaker's soul is wondering what will happen to it once her body dies.
anybody?
