Under The Harvest Moon Analysis

Author: poem of Carl Sandburg Type: poem Views: 24

     Under the harvest moon,
When the soft silver
Drips shimmering
Over the garden nights,
Death, the gray mocker,
Comes and whispers to you
As a beautiful friend
Who remembers.

     Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.

This poem according to me its basically about the anticipation of people for the end of suffering and the moon symbolises happiness so the moon is compared to their happiness in the end.

I believe that it is about life and death. The first stanza seems to me to be about a friend who died, or whose soul was \'reaped in the harvest\'. The death stirred up memories of love and life. The memories and love, in turn, caused wonder and curiosity about life and living, and the questions were ones that were of deep, beautiful meaning, but unanswerable in the way that no one will ever really have the insight to understand. That is why the poem is called \"Under the Harvest Moon,\" because it is about being in a time of a reaping of souls, and reflecting upon that.

To me the poem is all about love. The harvest moon brings a bright light to the night. This night symbolizes the death of love. But the light from the harvest moon symbolizes remembrance. Yes, you are sad and weak because of this lack of love, but the death of it brings you memories that will last a lifetime. The second stanza is about the period of time between the sunset and the harvest moon called dusk. It is about the changing of season from summer to fall. The leaves are dying, but there is beauty within this death. Love, so gentle, swoops in an reminds you of a happier time. With the death of summer, a beautious and colorful fall is created. This fall is a metaphor for memories. The feeling of love is so unanswerable. It brings about questions that one can never seem to answer. But, these questions are beautiful. They are a part of being in love.

i love this poem. the first stanza is about death and about when it comes, it brings along memories. The second stanza is about love. It says that love brings curiosity with itself.
it is about the harvest moon which appears near the time of august. during august, many things die, yet it is so beautiful.
