Romance Romance, who loves to nod and sing, 8A With drowsy head and folded wing, 8A Among the green leaves as they shake 8B Far down within some shadowy lake, 9B To me a painted paroquet 8C Hath been a most familiar bird 8D Taught me my alphabet to say 8C To lisp my very earliest word 8D While in the wild wood I did lie, 8E A child with a most knowing eye. 8E Of late, eternal Condor years So shake the very Heaven on high With tumult as they thunder by, I have no time for idle cares Through gazing on the unquiet sky. And when an hour with calmer wings Its down upon my spirit flings That little time with lyre and rhyme To while away forbidden things! My heart would feel to be a crime Unless it trembled with the strings.

Analysis: The poem was written in 1929. But the period hasn’t any influence in the poem.

The title of the poem is descriptive it gives an idea of the nature of the poem. The poem has got two stanzas. The first stanza has ten lines and the second one has eleven lines. I think that the poem hasn’t got a concrete structure but a free structure. The rhyme is internal and it doesn’t correspond to a specific poetic form. The verbs of the poem are in active form. The poet uses very few punctuation, this makes that the poem has rhythm The speaker is the poet because is in the first person. The poem is about the feelings of the poet because sentiments are a typical person characteristic.

The poem is about the love that a person feels for another person. Using a bird as metaphor of love. In the first stanza, the bird is a small paroquet but in the second stanza the bird is a big condor because the love is very big. . 3
