up into the silence the green
silence with a white earth in it
you will(kiss me)go
out into the morning the young
morning with a warm world in it
(kiss me)you will go
on into the sunlight the fine
sunlight with a firm day in it
you will go(kiss me
down into your memory and
a memory and memory
i)kiss me,(will go)
You are a good poet and I will kiss mahnika by the poem.
up into the silence the green is about a man lossing his lover. the “up into the silence the green” is a ground barriel place, death. the earth. and “Silence with white earth in it.” is seeing heaven. his lover going to heaven. (kiss me down into your memory & a memory & memory i will go)-his lover is now only a memory left in his head, her physical repensitation is no longer there. only images of his lover are left in his head.
Fresh, green, soft, like spring. The sort of poem that is too good for analysis, I just like to read it over and over.
Great poem. I am imagining two lovers parting in the morning, perhaps their love is a secret and the young lady must go before her absense is noted, and her lover understands why she must go and insists she does but at the same time will not allow her to leave, continuating their lovemaking. It is quite poignant.
my favorite poem and the reason for my first kiss,
