Help analyze “Time does not bring relief; you all have lied” poem?





The poem is by Edna St Vincent Millay:TIME does not bring relief; you all have lied Who told me time would ease me of my pain! I miss him in the weeping of the rain; I want him at the shrinking of the tide; The old snows melt from every mountain-side, 5 And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane; But last year’s bitter loving must remain Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide! There are a hundred places where I fear To go,—so with his memory they brim! 10 And entering with relief some quiet place Where never fell his foot or shone his face I say, "There is no memory of him here!" And so stand stricken, so remembering him! Please try to analyze it in terms of anything that may be helpful to me to write in an essay such as tone, language, imagery, symbol, verse from, meaning etc. As well, tell me what you think about it. Thanks so much!

    Its solid..There is one Keyword I like about Rain….and the smoke of the leaves in the lane..ts very nice about memory..That memory might contain lies..?Mechanical memory is lost..while human memory is more static..or permanent..There is not one thing mechanical in the poem..its all about–>forwardness….the shrinking of a tide../even becomes a forward..possibly a moonlit passion alone.
