Requiescat Analysis

Author: poem of Oscar Wilde Type: poem Views: 10

Sponsored Links

Tread lightly, she is near

Under the snow,

Speak gently, she can hear

The daisies grow.

All her bright golden hair

Tarnished with rust,

She that was young and fair

Fallen to dust.

Lily-like, white as snow,

She hardly knew

She was a woman, so

Sweetly she grew.

Coffin-board, heavy stone,

Lie on her breast,

I vex my heart alone

She is at rest.

Peace, Peace, she cannot hear

Lyre or sonnet,

All my life's buried here,

Heap earth upon it.

I think it might be a metaphor: This woman can mean anything that was dear to him: something or indeed maybe someone that was very dear to him. But he must 'tread lightly' and 'Speak gently' maybe because he/she has moved on, changed as a person and does not want his/her past to creep up to him/her.
Although, that is my perception.

Perhaps this poem was dedicated to his sister, who died at age 8?

I think this poem refers to some female-figure in Oscar Wilde\'s life. He talks of how he loves her and how beautiful and amazing her hair, skin, and overall affect is. Then, the poems turns to a somber note when he describes the coffin she lies in. The last stanza basically says that when this women died, he died inside.
