Once it smiled a silent dell

Where the people did not dwell;

They had gone unto the wars,

Trusting to the mild-eyed stars,

Nightly, from their azure towers,

To keep watch above the flowers,

In the midst of which all day

The red sunlight lazily lay.

Now each visitor shall confess

The sad valley's restlessness.

Nothing there is motionless-

Nothing save the airs that brood

Over the magic solitude.

Ah, by no wind are stirred those trees

That palpitate like the chill seas

Around the misty Hebrides!

Ah, by no wind those clouds are driven

That rustle through the unquiet Heaven

Uneasily, from morn till even,

Over the violets there that lie

In myriad types of the human eye-

Over the lilies there that wave

And weep above a nameless grave!

They wave:- from out their fragrant tops

Eternal dews come down in drops.

They weep:- from off their delicate stems

Perennial tears descend in gems.

This poem is an alliteration to the jeopardy theorem, where one metaphor out balances all of the total similes in a conjugation. Its a very deep and loaded poem

I think the flower that he was talking about represent rebirth and new beginnings.

What I have always thought was that Poe was simply describing an ancient burial site where the bodies of dead soldiers were interned without ceremony. That the presence of the unmarked graves hangs over the valley with a disquiet that everyone who visits it can feel. And how even in the stillness of a windless day everything is still in motion, the tree branches even the clouds move for the dead are not at rest – it is “The Valley of Unrest.”

i think that the poem is saying that death can come to both sides. When someone dies you feel their pain and no their sadness. I think he wrote it because of his experience he felt in the wars. War isnt a good thin but its not a bad thing either. We will all die some day and i think he realized that and wrote in that wy of his.

This poem represents the relationship between life and death. It shows the stress which you recieve when you die when you live and when you pass. This has an effect on what happens to you when your alive and, is amplified when your state of mind is altered by drugs , as edgar allen poe was

- Always life in the valley, we haven\'t always been able to appreciate beofore, until we the time to look and listen closely and carefully into nature; what never rests, there is always some life in the valley (Ex, the waving flowers, screeching wind, or perenial tears falling in sorrow).

I believe this poem talks about the pain that many situations have brought. The wars that have brought home dead war men, sad women and destroyed children and families. then it morphs into speaking that every visitor to a graveyard can still see them can feel their presence and sort of identify themselves with them

I agree that its all about war and people and family's waiting for the soldiers to come home. It talks about eh pain and suffering brought to both sides of teh people involved in war.

I think the message of this poem is that war brings total stress on the family and friends of the soldier because they worry that he might not survive. And war does not bring any happiness to the people at home or on the other side because once you've killed a so called enemy, you have brought total sadness and grief on that soldier's family and friends. There is no happiness or joy in killing other people because that's murdering. Poe was saying that war is beyond wrong for those mourning the deaths of their loved ones and especially wrong in public as to what the consequences of it is or what it will turn out to be. (the outcome)

This poem seems as if it's talking about what pain wars bring to people. In the first few lines, I believe it talks about wives waiting at home for their husbands to come home from war. It talks about how everyone is restless, waiting for the return of the soldiers. In the end, it talks about weeping flowers, refering to the weeping widows and such.
