Her Voice - Poem by Oscar Wilde

THE wild bee reels from bough to bough
With his furry coat and his gauzy wing.
Now in a lily-cup, and now

    The sea-gull does not “love” the sea; the sunflower does not “seek” the sun. If two lives last so long as these things, then they cannot be “for eternity”. A spun web is not the end but the beginning - a web would be made to catch love, and not in a very nice way! . Where else is his love to look but “upward” to view where the poplar trees sway. What have “mighty, murmuring, mystical” got to do with anything? How comes there is a seagull in a valley? “Keen winter” does not “stab the breasts of May” - May acts on winter, not the reverse. You cannot attribute “bursting” to the action of roses on the frost. (Report) Reply

    I enjoyed this. It has a companion poem entitled 'My Voice'. Her voice obviously shows the female perspective on the end of their love affair. I like that she is not bitter that their love has ended, only sad, but hopeful that as love does not end they will go on and find love again. (Report) Reply

    Is he saying all these things of love to a friend or a lady love? The question needs to be answered by those who know the close life matters of Wilde! In general it is a nice poem indeed! (Report) Reply
