There Will Come Soft Rains Analysis



Author: Poetry of Sarah Teasdale Type: Poetry Views: 3433



There will come soft rains and the
smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their
shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at
night,
And wild plum-trees in tremulous
white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire
Whistling their whims on a low
fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war,
not one
Will care at last when it done.

Not one would mind, neither bird
nor tree
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke
at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

This poem speaks to the rift between us and nature. It speaks to disconnect all things between natural and all things human. While we take small delights in soft rains, swallows, frogs, trees, and birds, they take little regard of us because we are out of touch with all things divine.
So while we know and miss because we operate out of our minds and have lost contact with our innermost selves, we miss all when gone. We consider ourselves evolved above all else while those less evolved surely have us beaten. They get it that all that matters is the essence of being. All that glitters is not gold and Bradbury was right \"there will come soft rains when all is done, all is done.
All that\'s natural will not notice when we are gone and I wonder if we notice anything at all beyond what we can touch.
This poem reminds me of the bear in the wilderness of the falling tree that are even though no one is around to take note.

For me this poem is a prophecy of the destructive power of the human race and how our warlike characteristics turn us against nature. By always trying to defeat nature we are in fact destroying ourselves.
The language within the poem reflects the meaning of the poem through sound techniques and imagery.
One example of this is the repeated \'s\' sound (sibilance)which suggests a sense of the tension created by the human race and in contrast the gentleness of soft breath of nature which soothes and heals.
Another example is the alliteration of \'feathery fire\'which links both words and creates the contrast between the random and indiscriminate scarring caused by gunfire during wartime resulting in death and the vibrant and powerful energy of nature which creates life.

I find this poem a beautiful reminder of how really reliant we are on nature itself, and how, one way or another, it makes no difference to our world. It was the perfect way to sum up the short, give it a message and moral. We should be more tolerant of our environment, and it may even return the favor.

I think this poem really expresses how humans think they are really powerful, but later came to realize that they are not the most powerful when nature does not care what happened to humankind.

it is a poem about how if man distroyed its self nature would not care and would contue on and wash away all our imprint with "soft rain" and the world would not care so however we would leave a imprint that however heavy would eventualy be removed and forever lost

i dont see how this poem can be related to sonnet XVIII by shakespeare?
sonnet 18 speaks of how through his sonnet as long as people read it then the person in the poem will stay alive and stay beautiful.

i think it is beautiful. just an opinion but i dont understand why no one speaks like this any more.

Hmmm. I think this poem has two way in which it can be analyzed. One is with the rift between nature and man and how man is much more temporal than nature itself.
The other i believe is related to the era of the writer herself, between the timeliness of war in America. Given that man continuously fights for himself thorugh war, or advancement or whatever; it shows that man has become an unnecessary, irrelevant wherein it might even cause its own demise. It would not matter how many died or how many lived and nature would scarcely care. Our strife and lives, even our deaths are just another phase of nature. We are merely a clock tick.
Either way life, this world, nature will go on with or without us. Whether we choose to accept it and see its beauty is another matter.
Just an opinion. JnJ

Man has always dignified themselves because they invent, create, and so on. The poem belittles us in a way, because, despite of our so called "advances" in society, we have not benefited anybody but ourselves. We detach ourselves from Earth, and create artificial substitutes. For example, the light bulb instead of sunlight, etc. Ultimately, we have not left a footprint in Nature. And when "soft rains" come and destory the physical evidence of our presence, Spring herself when she wakes at dawn, will scarcely know that we were gone.

it a very good poem incliding the conflict between naute and culture. ıt si easy to compare it with sheakspeare's sonnet 18

Actally I think that the poem has two levels. The first "surface" level is concerned with Man's ignorance to the nature around. Thus, when he dies nothing will care about his disappearing because even when he was alive, he was like the absent present. On a deeper analysis to the poem, it may be considered as a reflection to the poet's life - hard life. She suffered from weak physical state, begane going to school when she was about 9 years old, and finally died by taking an over-doze of sleeping pills. In other words, she didn't feel that important in life. She didn't believe that she had a role and that she could affect people. She was almost sure that her death won't make that great difference. She felt that her absence won't cause a void in the world.

This poem speaks to the rift between ourselves and nature. It spekas to the disconnect between all things natural and all things human. Whiel we take small delights in soft rains, swallows, frogs, trees, and birds, they take little regard of us becuase we are out of touch with all things devine.

So while we know and miss becuase we operate out of our minds and have lost contact with our innermost selves, we miss all when gone. We consider ourselves evolved above all else while those less evolved surely have us beaten. They get it that all that matters is the essnece of being. All that glitters is not gold and Bradbury was right "there will come soft rains when all is done, all is done.

All that's natural will not noyice when we are gone and I wonder if we notice anything at all beyound what we can touch.

This poem reminds me of the bear inthe wilderness of the falling tree that are even though no one is around to take note.
