Crossing The Water Analysis



Author: poem of Sylvia Plath Type: poem Views: 21

Sponsored Links



Black lake, black boat, two black, cut-paper people.

Where do the black trees go that drink here?

Their shadows must cover Canada.



A little light is filtering from the water flowers.

Their leaves do not wish us to hurry:

They are round and flat and full of dark advice.



Cold worlds shake from the oar.

The spirit of blackness is in us, it is in the fishes.

A snag is lifting a valedictory, pale hand;



Stars open among the lilies.

Are you not blinded by such expressionless sirens?

This is the silence of astounded souls.

.: :.

The title \'Crossing the Water\' suggests a movement or transition, in this case between life and death, which is symbolised by the binary of light and dark. The \'blackness\' which is present throughout the poem creates an atmosphere of bleakness and death.
