Valentine Analysis



Author: poem of Carol Ann Duffy Type: poem Views: 13

Not a red rose or a satin heart.



I give you an onion.

It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.

It promises light

like the careful undressing of love.



Here.

It will blind you with tears

like a lover.

It will make your reflection

a wobbling photo of grief.



I am trying to be truthful.



Not a cute card or a kissogram.



I give you an onion.

Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,

possessive and faithful

as we are,

for as long as we are.



Take it.

Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding-ring,

if you like.



Lethal.

Its scent will cling to your fingers,

cling to your knife.

He Writes Poems by the Seashore I'm watching the birds for finsAnd the cluods for making waves,I already know that they suggestA presence of foam or brine,The wet blue below meAnd the dry blue aboveAre identical twins bound togetherIn my field of vision,The loss of sunlight will only makeThis reversal of poles, worse,When night comes, the starsWill be the tips of so many anglersTrying to lure me into new depths.

confused how is the relationship presented when it says \"it will blind you with tears/ Like a lover\"

\'it will blind you with tears\' this shows that both onions make you cry due to their pungent scent and also love can make you cry both in happiness and in sadness.
the poem has a very dark mood and to prove this, it begins the poem with the first word \"Not\" and from there on in, most of the stanzas represent some sort of negativity.

“It is a moon, wrapped in brown paper.”
The moon, a symbolic institution of love, brings a sense of romance to the poem though I think this is interrupted by “wrapped in brown paper” which suggest like an on, love has many layers which reveal a depth of grief.
