For each ecstatic instant

We must an anguish pay

In keen and quivering ration

To the ecstasy.



For each beloved hour

Sharp pittances of years—

Bitter contested farthings—

And Coffers heaped with Tears!

It also suggest that the hardships are equal to the pleasures with the "keen and quivering ratio." It is interesting to think about it being lost love, and how eventually every happiness in counteracted by a corresponding pain. This could be attributed in love ending always in infidelity, divorce, or death. It seems to me sort of hopeless that every happy experience turns into one of tears and torment, but it is always quite comforting when you do feel depressed or extremely sad that you are merely paying for being happy in the past. She also has a quote I heard, although I don't know from what poem, that "the soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience." This seems to suggest she knows that pain/suffering goes hand in hand with happiness/love, but she is not cynical; she encourages us to live life deeply. To let the ecstatic moments into us, and when they leave to understand that they must be paid for with "coffers heaped with tears."

everytime we have a moment of happiness, we have to repay it with a year of sadness. maybe she thnks the world is a cruel place where we can never be happy?

I believe that her poem is about life, and throughout all life's benefits and happiness there will be obstacles. I may be incorrect with what I choose to decipher, but that is the reaction I am feeling. I also am slightly intrigued by the fact that it could be about a broken love, and the feelings felt toward it later, the second half.
