Axes

After whose stroke the wood rings,

And the echoes!

Echoes traveling

Off from the center like horses.



The sap

Wells like tears, like the

Water striving

To re-establish its mirror

Over the rock



That drops and turns,

A white skull,

Eaten by weedy greens.

Years later I

Encounter them on the road----



Words dry and riderless,

The indefatigable hoof-taps.

While

From the bottom of the pool, fixed stars

Govern a life.

.: :.

Plath is an enigmatic poet. She veers from life to death, from tenderness to violence. She is not in control of her fate, as she sees it, but she is in control of her life and thus suicide is her sole power. The stream represents her life and the rocks represent her suffering and emotional issues - they churn up the stream. Lying in the bottom of the pool everything is calm because she finally has control over her life (through death).
This is one of the last poems she wrote before her death and reflects the inner turmoil of one desperately seeking help. Her critics, father and husband reject her. She acknowledges the power of their words in the first line \'Axes\'. Words are her weapon and her defence. It is no wonder this poem is named after them.
