An Embroidery Analysis



Author: poem of Denise Levertov Type: poem Views: 5

Rose Red's hair is brown as fur

and shines in firelight as she prepares

supper of honey and apples, curds and whey,

for the bear, and leaves it ready

on the hearth-stone.



Rose White's grey eyes

look into the dark forest.



Rose Red's cheeks are burning,

sign of her ardent, joyful

compassionate heart.

Rose White is pale,

turning away when she hears

the bear's paw on the latch.



When he enters, there is

frost on his fur,

he draws near to the fire

giving off sparks.



Rose Red catches the scent of the forest,

of mushrooms, of rosin.



Together Rose Red and Rose White

sing to the bear;

it is a cradle song, a loom song,

a song about marriage, about

a pilgrimage to the mountains

long ago.

            Raised on an elbow,

the bear stretched on the hearth

nods and hums; soon he sighs

and puts down his head.



He sleeps; the Roses

bank the fire.

Sunk in the clouds of their feather bed

they prepare to dream.



Rose Red in a cave that smells of honey

dreams she is combing the fur of her cubs

with a golden comb.

Rose White is lying awake.



Rose White shall marry the bear's brother.

Shall he too

when the time is ripe,

step from the bear's hide?

Is that other, her bridegroom,

here in the room?
