Kinetik "tableau vivant" of a hunting scene.
In the last verse, the deer and the lover become one slained by the arrow
of the beloved one.
Something medieval about the poem....

One of my favorite love poems - for years I wore all green - hoping that
someone would recite the poem to me, and I would go off with him without
looking back.

This poem was put to music and sung by Joan Baez as a slow haunting ballad.
I work specially well as a song.

reminds me of the Petrarchan sonnet we read in my Lit class, with the woman
as a deer that the man hunts and fails to catch, only the roles are
reversed. also brings to mind the song "Greensleeves" and the myth of
Artemis/Diana. cummings is all over the place with this one...

I like this poem. It is sad, but the discriptions in it are so good, it
brings you there.
