The House Analysis



Author: Poetry of Philip Levine Type: Poetry Views: 84

This poem has a door, a locked door,and curtains drawn against the day,but at night the lights come on, onein each room, and the neighbors swearthey hear music and the sound of dancing.These days the neighbors will swearto anything, but that is not whythe house is locked up and no one goesin or out all day long; that is becausethis is a poem first and a house onlyat night when everyone should be asleep.The milkman tries to stop at dawn,for he has three frosty white bottlesto place by the back door, but his horseshakes his head back and forth, and sohe passes on his way. The papers pileup on the front porch until the rainturns them into gray earth, and they rundown the stairs and say nothingto anyone. Whoever made this househad no idea of beauty -- it's all gray --and no idea of what a happy familyneeds on a day in spring when tulipsshout from their brown beds in the yard.Back there the rows are thick with weeds,stickers, choke grass, the place has goneto soggy mulch, and the tools are hangingunused from their hooks in the tool room.Think of a marriage taking place at onein the afternoon on a Sunday in Junein the stuffy front room. The dining tableis set for twenty, and the tall glassesfilled with red wine, the silver sparkling.But no one is going in or out, not evena priest in his long white skirt, or a boyin pressed shorts, or a plumber with a fat bag.
