Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,

    Indeed forgetting puts an end to all worries! There lies real freedom!

    Beautiful emotions laced with sorrow; leading the lover out of his pain so he can remember love as happy days gone by.

    True love; as seen by the poet.

    Good poem!
    straw, you don't have to like it, but please don't ruin the poem for the rest of us!

    Does nothing satisfy our hypercritical Straw? Take it slow, Kevin, and read the sonnet line by line before launching into 'the thrology behind the phrase 'darkness and corruption, '' all right? First off, identify the type - Italian or English? Is there a break between octave and sestet? What does that signify? Whether or not Rosseti's sonnet is a 'pale version' of Shakespeare's Sonnet 74, I leave to our readers to decide!

    OK, time's up! 'Remember' is an Italian sonnet, patterned after Petrarch. The octave (first 8 lines) states an argument, and the sestet (final 6 lines) resolves or answers the argument. The silent land is death's dominion, the speaker notes, and when I am there I can no longer respond to your overtures. But do not grieve, for though I dwell in darkness and my mortal remains disintegrate into dust, recall the happy times we shared and let the sad times go!

  • Kevin Straw (8/3/2009 5:30:00 AM)

    I do not agree with the theology behind the phrase 'darkness and corruption' - it spoils the poem for me. This is a pale version of Shakespeare's Sonnet 74 'But be contented when that fell arrest/Without all bail shall carry me away...'

    This is beautiful, even in memory she does not want to grieve some one. Admirable lines and style of expression. Somber and touching.

  • Annie Davies (1/13/2009 9:03:00 AM)
