Afternoon in February Analysis



Author: Poetry of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Type: Poetry Views: 205





The day is ending,

The night is descending;

The marsh is frozen,

The river dead.



Through clouds like ashes

The red sun flashes

On village windows

That glimmer red.



The snow recommences;

The buried fences

Mark no longer

The road o'er the plain;



While through the meadows,

Like fearful shadows,

Slowly passes

A funeral train.



The bell is pealing,

And every feeling

Within me responds

To the dismal knell;



Shadows are trailing,

My heart is bewailing

And tolling within

Like a funeral bell.

.: :.

This poem is refering to the death of Longfellow\'s dear second wife Fanny, who was died from a terrible accident of burning. He was dearly in love with her and never got over the shock of her death( he watched her burn). Longfellow suffered from the sickness Nastolgia for the rest of his life due to this event.
More over, he could not attend her funeral but watched from afar due to his lack of health. This poem describes what he must have felt that February day as he watched his beloved being placed in the ground, forever lost to himself.
He must have felt hopeless.
Yet what he did not know was that there was hope. All those that feel seperated from their loved ones by death, do not realize that there is one who defeated death. His name is Jesus Christ! If you look to him, you will find x - a person who cares
