The Spring And The Fall Analysis



Author: poem of Edna St. Vincent Millay Type: poem Views: 3


In the spring of the year, in the spring of the year,
I walked the road beside my dear.
The trees were black where the bark was wet.
I see them yet, in the spring of the year.
He broke me a bough of the blossoming peach
That was out of the way and hard to reach.

In the fall of the year, in the fall of the year,
I walked the road beside my dear.
The rooks went up with a raucous trill.
I hear them still, in the fall of the year.
He laughed at all I dared to praise,
And broke my heart, in little ways.

Year be springing or year be falling,
The bark will drip and the birds be calling.
There's much that's fine to see and hear
In the spring of a year, in the fall of a year.
'Tis not love's going hurt my days.
But that it went in little ways.

I learned this poem in elementary school, more than fifty years ago. It has remained in my mind and heart ever since. I often think of Millay's words - the joy and innocence of love's beginnings, like the freshness and sweetness of spring - to the emptiness and disappointment of the end of a relationship. Whether it takes a season or decades to sour, love's going in "little ways" is the most painful heartbreak.

this poem is so sad. the first stanza is talking of her love relatioship and how it is going well but the second stanza is talking how it is going horribly using metaphors like raucous which is a bird like a crow which could symbolize how the relationship is going bad and slowly is no more. Also the title relates to the poem because they use spring to symbolize the relationship is peacful and happy while in the fall it is falling apart. Finally and the end of the first stanza she states he breaks off a branch wea

.: The Spring and The Fall :.

This poem was a reflection of Edna St.Vincent Millay's personal experience in love relationships. They would start with so much happiness and excitement, but gradually, and inevitably the interest of her suitors would wane as demonstrated by uncaring or unkind words. The popularity of this poem is a testimony to the universality of loves going in little ways.
