It Is A Spring Afternoon Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 3

Everything here is yellow and green.

Listen to its throat, its earthskin,

the bone dry voices of the peepers

as they throb like advertisements.

The small animals of the woods

are carrying their deathmasks

into a narrow winter cave.

The scarecrow has plucked out

his two eyes like diamonds

and walked into the village.

The general and the postman

have taken off their packs.

This has all happened before

but nothing here is obsolete.

Everything here is possible.

Because of this

perhaps a young girl has laid down

her winter clothes and has casually

placed herself upon a tree limb

that hangs over a pool in the river.

She has been poured out onto the limb,

low above the houses of the fishes

as they swim in and out of her reflection

and up and down the stairs of her legs.

Her body carries clouds all the way home.

She is overlooking her watery face

in the river where blind men

come to bathe at midday.

Because of this

the ground, that winter nightmare,

has cured its sores and burst

with green birds and vitamins.

Because of this

the trees turn in their trenches

and hold up little rain cups

by their slender fingers.

Because of this

a woman stands by her stove

singing and cooking flowers.

Everything here is yellow and green.

Surely spring will allow

a girl without a stitch on

to turn softly in her sunlight

and not be afraid of her bed.

She has already counted seven

blossoms in her green green mirror.

Two rivers combine beneath her.

The face of the child wrinkles.

in the water and is gone forever.

The woman is all that can be seen

in her animal loveliness.

Her cherished and obstinate skin

lies deeply under the watery tree.

Everything is altogether possible

and the blind men can also see.
