Forum Question One: Sound Poetry

Post  seguin199 on Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:03 pm

The poem has an AABBA rhyme scheme that helps the poem to flow. In the second stanza, the words, "shield," "field," and "healed" represent protection and safety whereas in the third stanza, "aching heart," "apart," and "dart" represent sadness and being frightened. This gives contrast to the poem and adds a variety of different meanings to the poem as well.

I think that the different meanings in which the contrasting moods give could be elaborated on. For instance in the second stanza where it says "shield" "field" "copse" "chops" and "healed", these words do bring a sense of protection but not for the writer. These words seem to personify nature. Nature has come back and now hides all traces of the human life that once lived in this area. The word "healed" seems to say that the human life that once lived there had injured the fragile environment and now it has recovered. The sadness seems to tie into this stanza as well because the memories of the writer can no longer be seen because nature has reclaimed the land.
