I agree with the above that this poem is a pledge of loyalty, not in the
sense of 'faithfulness' as we all know millay was not one for being
faithful or monagamous.But a fidelity of feeling,of being true to the last
in all she felt without regard for consequence.

This poem reminds me of shakespeare's "love does not alter when alteration
finds or bends with the remover to remove" I think it's Millays best.

She is declaring her ability to love this person forever. As evidence of
this, she states that she has shown an allegience to loving other things,
and has never wavered. She has stood up against differing pressures that
sought to kill her love...she is faithful. Although I liked this poem, I
thought something was missing from the ending. Does anyone agree?
