Will there really be a "Morning"?
Is there such a thing as "Day"?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?

Has it feet like Water lilies?
Has it feathers like a Bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?

Oh some Scholar! Oh some Sailor!
Oh some Wise Men from the skies!
Please to tell a little Pilgrim
Where the place called "Morning" lies!

She had spiritual yearnings and I interpret this as a poem about the afterlife

Very great poem, I also believe it is about her struggle to attempt to gain freedom

I think that the poem is basically a metaphor for freedom. The author writes about "morning" being sort of impossible to reach and she is always searching for it.

I really like the analysis in these comments. I think that she is referencing morning both as Jesus and Heaven. The first and last stanza references a place and the middle stanza talks about a thing. "Scholars" as priests and "Wise man from the sky" as god etc... Thanks my English teacher for the help though haha.

I think she is trying referring to heaven. she says "where the place called "Morning" lies!" she is saying it is a place not a thing. She is wondering if she was as tall as the mountains could she see "Morning" or heaven. When she says "Has it feathers like a bird?" I believe she is implying does heaven move around does it fly free is that why it is never seen. when she is talking about a sailor she wants someone who someone who has been a lot of places to tell her where the "Morning" is. OK so I'm only 15 so I might of not done very well at interpreting this but I tried I hope it makes sense.

I think she is looking for a way out, like someone to come and save her fromm all the death, pain, rejetion, and anger. She is looking for a sign of hope somewhere and the \"morning\" is that sign.

\"Morning\" in this poem is metaphor for Christ. Certainly people doubted before his coming, would he ever come to change the human condition. And of course he has feet of waterlillies and feathers--Symbols of his ability to walk or float on water, and his angelic origens. We are all pilgrims on a journey to find the child, or true meaning or purpose to our lives. Beautiful poem.

In This poem, there is a lot of doubt and Helplessness. The poet must be wondering if there really is such a wonderful thing in the world like day, and if she will ever be able to experience or see this magnificent thing. She\'s asking a scholar, a sailor ( one who knows he seas and has experience?), and probably God (wise man in the skies) to tl a little pilgrim like her where such a thing like morning lies.

This is a poem about darkness and the hope for light. The darkness can be a multitude of things: fear, anger, pain, sorrow, depression, loneliness, rejection or deception. The narrator wonders if the darkness will continue or if he/she were different if the darkness would be so absolute. There is a yearning and hope for change in the comparison to mountains and lilies. It ends with a plea for someone to bring light to the darkness; for a rescuer to come bringing knowledge and truth to the darkness of uncertainty.

The poem shows the thoughts of a person caught in perpetual darkness, with no sensory experience of the day, this person is forced to use childish language and concepts(echoing Alice in Wonderland) when they attempt to understand something they could never understand.

Hi. I wanted to be the 1st comment for 2011! Hehe.

I think \"morning\" is a metaphor for religion, or faith...and I think the poem is talking about where to find faith. I think she is asking where it comes from, does it come from waking up every morning? or seeing beautiful things? or from what people tell you you should believe in?

| Posted on 2010-11-24 | by a guest


.: :.

When she questions the morning, she trully questions the fact thaat she waking up to another day. Then she goes on to question the existence of day. To grasp that sense of comprehension of something so magnificent as a day or a morning, would she have to be something bigger and as magnificent as the morning, or as she puts it, a mountain? The ludicrous connection between a morning or a mountain with an object that has feet and feathers is taking the being with those characteristics to the level of the mountain. Making man a magnificent thing.

This song/poem compares morning to the bright happiness that releives us from the sadness of "night," meaning darkness. it could also be desribed in an analogy- morning : night :: freedom : darkness. if anything, this song is a definite metaphor.

Though seemingly nonsensical, the words upon closer inspection are surprisingly profound. When each stanza is examined individually, a more philosophical and poignant motivation is discovered: the question of transient physicality. Does time really move like we think it does? Will it continue in the same way? If so, will we remain who we are? It is a question and a cry to God (“some wise man from the skies”) for answers.
