Three Songs Of Shattering Analysis



Author: poem of Edna St. Vincent Millay Type: poem Views: 10

           I



The first rose on my rose-tree

   Budded, bloomed, and shattered,

During sad days when to me

          Nothing mattered.



Grief of grief has drained me clean;

   Still it seems a pity

No one saw,—it must have been

          Very pretty.



           II



Let the little birds sing;

   Let the little lambs play;

Spring is here; and so 'tis spring;—

   But not in the old way!



I recall a place

   Where a plum-tree grew;

There you lifted up your face,

   And blossoms covered you.



If the little birds sing,

   And the little lambs play,

Spring is here; and so 'tis spring—

   But not in the old way!



           III



All the dog-wood blossoms are underneath the tree!

   Ere spring was going—ah, spring is gone!

And there comes no summer to the like of you and me,—

   Blossom time is early, but no fruit sets on.



All the dog-wood blossoms are underneath the tree,

   Browned at the edges, turned in a day;

And I would with all my heart they trimmed a mound for me,

   And weeds were tall on all the paths that led that way!

.: :.

I truley believe that in the first song of shattering, Edna is comparing her first love to a rose bush. I get the vibe that for some reason no one saw how beautiful or how good of a person someone was but her. Though for whatever reason she had already lost them. I feel that she was placed in a situation where she had lost her first love, and was upset about it, yet that person was still just a beautiful and just a great to her.
