Analysis and comments on The Dream by Louise Bogan

Comment 1 of 1, added on October 11th, 2011 at 11:38 PM.

Your fear can be overcome with trusting that life will take you where you
need to go. In the poem she describes herself, almost like a child fearful
of the ups and downs of life. She describes a woman taking hold of the
horse, in a way that she could not. The woman tells her to give something
to the horse, surrender in a way, to life and trust in it.
