Sonnets from the Portuguese1850II thought once how Theocritus had sung

Of the sweet years, the dear and wished-for years,

Who each one in a gracious hand appears

To bear a gift for mortals, old or young:

And, as I mused it in his antique tongue,

I saw, in gradual vision through my tears,

The sweet, sad years, the melancholy years,

Those of my own life, who by turns had flung

A shadow across me. Straightway I was 'ware,

So weeping, how a mystic Shape did move

Behind me, and drew me backward by the hair:

And a voice said in mastery, while I strove,-

'Guess now who holds thee? '-' Death,' I said. But, there,

The silver answer rang,-' Not Death, but Love.'

.: :.

I feel like this poem is talks about how the author suffered so many tragedies and was on guard about everything. Because of these experiences the author is pessimistc, but the truth is the author has no need to be. In reality, it's love that seeks her companionship and not death. It's a signal that the pain she had suffered in the past is replaced by something good- love. Love personified is very affectionate with the writer, playful. It suggests a familiar relationship and the hope that the author and Love will get better acquainted.
