This poem was written by Christina Rossetti - not Sylvia Plath

I also think that this poem foreshadows Plath's death, as the line "Jesus,
quicken me" implies to me that she wants the Lord to hurry along her death,
that she has no will to survive anymore. I see a sign of desperation in
Plath's narrative voice.

In this poem I, as the reader feel that Plath foreshadows her suicide. Some
lines of her work reveal that she just wants her life to end.
