Ah, Are You Digging On My Grave? Analysis



Author: poem of Thomas Hardy Type: poem Views: 86

"Ah, are you digging on my grave,

My loved one? -- planting rue?"

-- "No: yesterday he went to wed

One of the brightest wealth has bred.

'It cannot hurt her now,' he said,

'That I should not be true.'"



"Then who is digging on my grave,

My nearest dearest kin?"

-- "Ah, no: they sit and think, 'What use!

What good will planting flowers produce?

No tendance of her mound can loose

Her spirit from Death's gin.'"



"But someone digs upon my grave?

My enemy? -- prodding sly?"

-- "Nay: when she heard you had passed the Gate

That shuts on all flesh soon or late,

She thought you no more worth her hate,

And cares not where you lie.



"Then, who is digging on my grave?

Say -- since I have not guessed!"

-- "O it is I, my mistress dear,

Your little dog , who still lives near,

And much I hope my movements here

Have not disturbed your rest?"



"Ah yes! You dig upon my grave...

Why flashed it not to me

That one true heart was left behind!

What feeling do we ever find

To equal among human kind

A dog's fidelity!"



"Mistress, I dug upon your grave

To bury a bone, in case

I should be hungry near this spot

When passing on my daily trot.

I am sorry, but I quite forgot

It was your resting place."

Thomas Hardy through this poem is questioning the idea of death . how do people look at death , or maybe think about their death ? and i think that everyone asks himself or herself whether he\ she are going to be remembered after their death or not ? and everyone likes to be remembered but alas the opposite happens after their death because the only thing the illuminate sorrow and sadness is time . time is capable to let people forget . although of the dark atmosphere of this poem but Thomas Hardy here is very realistic ..

the speaker of this poem is a dead woman. she notices that someone is digging her grave. she asks if it is her loved one, her friend, or her enemy. she soon realizes that it is her dog. she thinks that at least her dog cares about her still but truthfully the dog just wanted a place to bury its bone and forgot that she was buried there. so basically, everyone forgot about her and it emphasizes that as time passes people move on.
