To Be In Love Analysis

Author: poem of Gwendolyn Brooks Type: poem Views: 59

To be in love

Is to touch with a lighter hand.

In yourself you stretch, you are well.

You look at things

Through his eyes.

A cardinal is red.

A sky is blue.

Suddenly you know he knows too.

He is not there but

You know you are tasting together

The winter, or a light spring weather.

His hand to take your hand is overmuch.

Too much to bear.

You cannot look in his eyes

Because your pulse must not say

What must not be said.

When he

Shuts a door-

Is not there_

Your arms are water.

And you are free

With a ghastly freedom.

You are the beautiful half

Of a golden hurt.

You remember and covet his mouth

To touch, to whisper on.

Oh when to declare

Is certain Death!

Oh when to apprize

Is to mesmerize,

To see fall down, the Column of Gold,

Into the commonest ash.

Anonymous submission.

Janet - You and other villagers are free to cross-post, link or otwhreise use anything that you see on this blog. Period and forever. It is a compliment when information that you find under our digital baobob tree is useful in other villagers around cyberspace. I'm not sure that I concur with you about President Bush's record of diversity hiring ... but, that is a story for a diffent day (smile)...Regina - Next time your friend emails you such good stuff ... post it on your blog!!

My question is wetehhr there is a form of media suppression taking place in Alaska. We've all seen various interviews related to Gov. Sarah Palin over the last few weeks but, NEVER have we seen ONE from ANY Alaskan who happens to be a minority! We know there are Indians, Eskimos & Blacks in the state so WHY are they not represented in the medias inquiries into the Governor and her position as it relates to their communities? I'm neither searching for negative or positive comments just opinions as it relates to the politics in Alaska today! But, somehow with the number of journalists which have arrived there since the announcement of Gov. Palin to the VP candidacy I find it strange that they cannot locate a single person of color (other than the beauty contestant winner) to interview on tape! This gives cause to question if something is "NOT QUITE RIGHT" in the upper 49th. I'm also curious as to why this issue hasn't been raised by any of the broadcast news programs? Is it a subject categorized as "OFF-LIMITS" by the station(s) management? If I am mistaken and you are aware of ANY links to current interviews please advise.

The meaning of this poem is that love is a great and difficult thing to face. In the beginning, Gwendolyn describes how it feels to be in love with a person. She feels everything he feels, sees everything he sees and feels dazed when around him. But suddenly they break up and she is gravely hurt. It feels like a dagger through the heart and even though she tries to forget and erase all of her feelings she ever felt, they still come back to haunt her. Even though there are emotions pouring inside of her, she cannot except that she misses her love because to do so is, a certain Death!
