Mist In The Valley Analysis

Author: Poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay Type: Poetry Views: 165

These hills, to hurt me more,

That am hurt already enough,-Having left the sea behind,

Having turned suddenly and left the shore

That I had loved beyond all words, even a song's words, toconvey,And built me a house on upland acres,

Sweet with the pinxter, bright and rough

With the rusty blackbird long before the winter's done,

But smelling never of bayberry hot in the sun,

Nor ever loud with the pounding of the long white breakers,-These hills, beneath the October moon,

Sit in the valley white with mist

Like islands in a quiet bay,Jut out from shore into the mist,

Wooded with poplar dark as pine,

Like points of land into a quiet bay.(Just in the way

The harbour met the bay)Stricken too sore for tears,

I stand, remembering the Islands and the sea's lost sound-Life at its best no longer than the sand-peep's cry,

And I two years, two years,

Tilling an upland ground!

.: :.

This poem is a poem about longing. It speaks the words that Millay sincerly missed the shore. The shore can be seen as a burning passion and the inland the safe yet comfortable choses. As Millay starts the poem she speaks of how the the hills have hurt her, but this is only because she has left the shore behind, thus truly Millay is saying that the speaker of the poem has her themselves by leaving that which they are passionate for. And the speaker con't to hurt themselves throughout the poem because they deciced on the safe choose instead of taking a chance and leaping for their passion.
