My Heart And I

Rating: 3.1
I.

ENOUGH ! we're tired, my heart and I.
We sit beside the headstone thus,
And wish that name were carved for us.
The moss reprints more tenderly
The hard types of the mason's knife,
As heaven's sweet life renews earth's life
With which we're tired, my heart and I.

'So tired, so tired, my heart and I! Though now none takes me on his arm To fold me close and kiss me warm Till each quick breath end in a sigh Of happy languor. Now, alone, We lean upon this graveyard stone, Uncheered, unkissed, my heart and I.' - Loved this stanza the most!

`Dear love, you're looking tired, ' he said; I, smiling at him, shook my head: 'Tis now we're tired, my heart and I....... In this poem lover and beloved became tired as separated being to finding out each to other. I think it's a pure poem of love

This is such a contrast to Pablo's IF YOU FORGET ME...a and has an average closeness to Poe's ANNABELL LEE. It is an ode to the heart.

about the destructive effects of grief and loss, and about the inability to move on after the death of someone the author loved
