Mother 's Return, The Analysis

Author: Poetry of William Wordsworth Type: Poetry Views: 369

A month, sweet Little-ones, is past

Since your dear Mother went away,---

And she tomorrow will return;

Tomorrow is the happy day.

O blessed tidings! thought of joy!

The eldest heard with steady glee;

Silent he stood; then laughed amain,---

And shouted, " Mother, come to me!"

Louder and louder did he shout,

With witless hope to bring her near;

"Nay, patience! patience, little boy!

Your tender mother cannot hear."

I told of hills, and far-off town,

And long, long vale to travel through;---

He listens, puzzled, sore perplexed,

But he submits; what can he do ?

No strife disturbs his sister's breast;

She wars not with the mystery

Of time and distance, night and day;

The bonds of our humanity.

Her joy is like an instinct, joy

Of kitten, bird, or summer fly;

She dances, runs without an aim,

She chatters in her ecstasy.

Her brother now takes up the note,

And echoes back his sister's glee;

They hug the infant in my arms,

As if to force his sympathy.

Then, settling into fond discourse,

We rested in the garden bower;

While sweetly shone the evening sun

In his departing hour.

We told o'er all that we had done,---

Our rambles by the swift brook's side

Far as the willow-skirted pool,

Where two fair swans together glide.

We talked of change, of winter gone,

Of green leaves on the hawthorn spray,

Of birds that build their nests and sing

And all "since Mother went away!"

To her these tales they will repeat,

To her our new-born tribes will show,

The goslings green, the ass's colt,

The lambs that in the meadow go.

---But, see, the evening star comes forth!

To bed the children must depart;

A moment's heaviness they feel,

A sadness at the heart;

'Tis gone---and in a merry fit

They run up stairs in gamesome race;

I, too, infected by their mood,

I could have joined the wanton chase.

Five minutes past---and, O the change!

Asleep upon their beds they lie;

Their buy limbs in perfect rest,

And closed the sparkling eye.
