A Poison Tree - Poem by William Blake

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine.
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

    I'm not sure about the meaning of this poem. The obvious meaning is he is happy about his foe's death or that with his foe's demise, his wrath is gone. For some reason I feel like it also means that he realized the toll that hold a grudge can take, the effort that is put into it, and that by talking it out in the first place, makes a foe into a friend.

    A well articulated poem blended in a quatrain of four stanzas.
