Liebestod Analysis



Author: poem of Dorothy Parker Type: poem Views: 6

When I was bold, when I was bold-

  And that's a hundred years!-

Oh, never I thought my breast could hold

  The terrible weight of tears.



I said: "Now some be dolorous;

  I hear them wail and sigh,

And if it be Love that play them thus,

  Then never a love will I."



I said: "I see them rack and rue,

  I see them wring and ache,

And little I'll crack my heart in two

  With little the heart can break."



When I was gay, when I was gay-

  It's ninety years and nine!-

Oh, never I thought that Death could lay

  His terrible hand in mine.



I said: "He plies his trade among

  The musty and infirm;

A body so hard and bright and young

  Could never be meat for worm."



"I see him dull their eyes," I said,

  "And still their rattling breath.

And how under God could I be dead

  That never was meant for Death?"



But Love came by, to quench my sleep,

  And here's my sundered heart;

And bitter's my woe, and black, and deep,

  And little I guessed a part.



Yet this there is to cool my breast,

  And this to ease my spell;

Now if I were Love's, like all the rest,

  Then can I be Death's, as well.



And he shall have me, sworn and bound,

  And I'll be done with Love.

And better I'll be below the ground

  Than ever I'll be above.
