In The Moonlight Analysis

Author: poem of Thomas Hardy Type: poem Views: 16

"O lonely workman, standing there

In a dream, why do you stare and stare

At her grave, as no other grave where there?"

"If your great gaunt eyes so importune

Her soul by the shine of this corpse-cold moon,

Maybe you'll raise her phantom soon!"

"Why, fool, it is what I would rather see

Than all the living folk there be;

But alas, there is no such joy for me!"

"Ah - she was one you loved, no doubt,

Through good and evil, through rain and drought,

And when she passed, all your sun went out?"

"Nay: she was the woman I did not love,

Whom all the other were ranked above,

Whom during her life I thought nothing of."

.: :.

This is a poem that will, or should disturb many people, it is the eternal cry \"You never appreciate something until it is yours no longer\" The phrase \"..corpse cold moon..\" combines two meanings, or messages, firstly the stark cold reality of death being the final barrier between what was there to hold and touch, and that which is no longer so. Secondly the cold, ethereal sensation of moonlight, so often still and quiet that seems to create that feeling of total isolation and loneliness. I find this to be a strangely moving and unforgettable poem, I could be that \"workman\" standing there mourning lost chances to tell someone you do care, mourning lost opportunities to do something before it is too late. I am not a lover of Hardy\'s work generally, but this poem is so pertinent and personal it really moves me.
