the poem opens and ends in the same idea of death . Personification serves to portray "poplars" trees as a witness abouy the historical legacy of slavers ,it aims to connect the past to the present.However the simile in "still as death" avokes the silence of te poplars tree.

Alright. Well, I, myself thought it was a well-written poem, description-wise, at least, although I don't like poetry much. But please, if you have something to comment about how you disliked the poem, have a legitimate reason if you wish to share it and please, I beg of you, show that you have a fraction of intelligence unlike some on here...
