This is a wonderful poem by Emerson and very modern in its approach --
don't you agree?
The first stanza examines how mementos like photos and rings may not change
and even the old lines in a letter (or poem) -- you can almost trick
yourself into beleiving they will preserve and protect your love for all
The second stanza fascinates me in its non-traditional approach --
contentwise, he's asking for something like a "mood ring" so he can tell
how she is feeling now that she has dropped her correspondance. He is
pining for news of the beloved.
Finally, in the last stanza, he despairs, knowing that the "keepsakes" do
not keep (guarantee) anything and admits he is afraid he has lost her,
which no doubt it true, if that's what he feels.
(btw, I like Robert Creeley's poem entitled "Amulet" but it doesn't hold a
candle to this one, even though it rhymes. lol)
