Variation On The Word Sleep Analysis



Author: Poetry of Margaret Atwood Type: Poetry Views: 1262

I would like to watch you sleeping,

which may not happen.

I would like to watch you,

sleeping. I would like to sleep

with you, to enter

your sleep as its smooth dark wave

slides over my headand walk with you through that lucent

wavering forest of bluegreen leaves

with its watery sun & three moons

towards the cave where you must descend,

towards your worst fearI would like to give you the silver

branch, the small white flower, the one

word that will protect you

from the grief at the center

of your dream, from the grief

at the center I would like to follow

you up the long stairway

again & become

the boat that would row you back

carefully, a flame

in two cupped hands

to where your body lies

beside me, and as you enter

it as easily as breathing inI would like to be the air

that inhabits you for a moment

only. I would like to be that unnoticed

& that necessary.

I wouldn\'t say the person is a stalker but maybe the person is in love with the other person. Maybe that\'s how strong her love is that she wants to become one with them and be able to be in their dreams.

.: :.

Ones first impression of this poem is that the poet is stalker like. They want to watch the person sleep, instead of just spending time together when they are awake. But sleep is important to life and it is a peaceful state; the poet wants to share this with the person in the poem. The repetition of “I would” suggests that the poet can’t. The idea of this poem is that the poet wants to part of the persons life, but for some reason can’t. The poet wants to be necessary. This poem is quiet and serene as it is based around dreams and sleep.
