The Flower Analysis



Author: Poetry of Alfred, Lord Tennyson Type: Poetry Views: 397

Once in a golden hour

I cast to earth a seed.

Up there came a flower,

The people said, a weed.



To and fro they went

Thro' my garden bower,

And muttering discontent

Cursed me and my flower.



Then it grew so tall

It wore a crown of light,

But thieves from o'er the wall

Stole the seed by night.



Sow'd it far and wide

By every town and tower,

Till all the people cried,

"Splendid is the flower!"



Read my little fable:

He that runs may read.

Most can raise the flowers now,

For all have got the seed.



And some are pretty enough,

And some are poor indeed;

And now again the people

Call it but a weed.

.: :.

In my reading of the poem, I feel as though Tennyson is trying to connect to the old saying, \"Do not judge a book by its cover.\" Everyone around the narrator is disgruntled by the flower/weed\'s presence, until they see it grow into a magnificent sight. The narrator reflects while everyone may see things differently, they should avoid jumping to conclusions on their opinions of \'things\'.
