This is a wonderful, powerfully emotional poem. As a person who does not
believe in imaginary skyfairies, I really appreciate how this poem
expresses the raw emotion of feelings of loss, without making repeated
references to "Gods Plan", or "She is in heaven now" or other simplistic
A few years ago when my loving grandmother died, I was asked to speak at
the funeral, which was held at a Catholic church. I wish I had thought to
include a reading of this poem back then.

Wikipedia entries for Bob Dylan's recent album, Time Out of Mind, refer to
Samuel Beckett and John Keats as influences on the album and the song Not
Dark Yet. Dirge Without Music should be added not only because it's the
source of the album title.

As I age and have more personal loses, I return to read "Dirge without
Music." The poem is hardly hopeful and certainly lacks comfort as I grieve,
but it is brilliant in its connections with human feelings;and, somehow,
its truth and lack of soothing bromides, encourages me to mourn for awhile,
then move on.

Millay opens her heart to the world in this poem, creating a sense of
admirable vulnerability, contrasting beautifully with her sense of
righteousness and vindication in her beliefs. It sounds as if shes speaking
directly to god in those lines "i know. But i do not approve. And i am not

it is interesting to see the political interpretation given by Je. This has
made me re-read the poem.
For me it has always been a helpful poem in grief, because it acknowledges
the anger, and sense of unfairness that life must end. I do not approve,
and I am not resigned.

This has been one of my favorite poems since I first read it 15 years ago.
It's relevance in today's political climate is unmistakable and it strikes
me as the perfect poem to honor our fallen heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
