I think thorough analysis of this poem is so far from that Jacinta. That is
the first obvious opinion, but in reality the poem's message is the exact
opposite: it is about hope in love. Take a closer look you will see.

The poem is great. It tells a lot about the poet by the way it's written.

This poem is like Dorothy's last word to love. Its her formal statement of
her parting with romance, her broken faith in relationships and men. I find
it very sad. This is the result of one woman who has been dissapointed one
too many times.
