I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;
Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.
The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.
And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song.
what other “minor” bird’s songs do we want to stop? Our children’s? Native Americans’ (say the specific Ghost Dance song – or any of Their” songs)? African American’s, Trans children’s, or anyone’s song other than White heterosexual, God-fearing, Christian, Pledge of Allegiance chanting, Governor Santos-voting, assault weapon-loving, concealed weapon carrying, long-time American.
Such a nice poem to hear wow
The theme of this poem to me personally is to do with depression. The person perceives the bird singing as a nuisance and wishes for it to go away where he’ll later come to regret the decision. Have clapped my hands at him from the door when it seemed as if i could bare no more. The person has finally gotten rid of the bird by clapping his hands because he had had enough of it.The fault must partly be in me the bird was not to blame for his key, this is the first sign of regret shown by the poet. The person would now ponder at first but later on he would come to realize that the fault was in him to silence nature, this reflects upon the last stanza “ and of course there must be something wrong in wanting to silence any song”.
This is of course just how i perceive the poem different mindsets could differ how you would put it as.
