Here's my paraphrase. When loved ones die, the sad news travels fast and
sadly can't be ignored. If these dead were to rise again, great bells
would herald the miracle. But if these sleepers lie buried, blooming
daisies at the graveside would speak for them. After my Philip parted
reluctantly with life, his parting drilled into my heart without the need
for daisies.

i think that her poem is sad. she is my favorite poet, but she writes
depressing ones. i think it is sad she is writing about loseing the people
she loves.

This is a beautful poem it toughches the soul and makes u wonder what would
u think and feel if those that you love and love you were lost and all that
remained was misery pain and enimies. in this poem she describes breifly
but truely the emotions most would feel if all that they love was lost and
tron from them thier very harts.

because half the people that commented didnt get it. but maybe we are all
just stupid

Man, I didn't understand any of that poem. It is really confusing. Who is
Daisy? Who is Phillip? What is a bell of Ghent?

I think this is a really nice poem. I also think that there are a lot of
people that would like it that haven't read it yet. I just moved to the UK
from California and I really miss learning about american poems and
literature.
