Transcript of "LOVE SONG"

STANZA 3
My love runs by like a day in June,
And he makes no friends of sorrows.
He’ll tread his galloping rigadoon
In the pathway of the morrows.
He’ll live his days where the sunbeams start,
Nor could storm or wind uproot him.
My own dear love, he is all my heart,—
And I wish somebody’d shoot him.
THEME
I think that theme of this poem is that things as strong as love have a big toll on people. I think that the speaker of this poem is having a hard time getting over someone, or that they are having a hard time adjusting to the thought of them not being there. Even though they want that person far away from them, they still love them.

" LOVE SONG"
My own dear love, he is strong and bold
And he cares not what comes after.
His words ring sweet as a chime of gold,
And his eyes are lit with laughter.
He is jubilant as a flag unfurled—
Oh, a girl, she’d not forget him.
My own dear love, he is all my world,—
And I wish I’d never met him.

My love, he’s mad, and my love, he’s fleet,
And a wild young wood-thing bore him!
The ways are fair to his roaming feet,
And the skies are sunlit for him.
As sharply sweet to my heart he seems
As the fragrance of acacia.
My own dear love, he is all my dreams,—
And I wish he were in Asia.

My love runs by like a day in June,
And he makes no friends of sorrows.
He’ll tread his galloping rigadoon
In the pathway of the morrows.
He’ll live his days where the sunbeams start,
Nor could storm or wind uproot him.
My own dear love, he is all my heart,—
And I wish somebody’d shoot him.
My love, he’s mad, and my love, he’s fleet,
And a wild young wood-thing bore him!
The ways are fair to his roaming feet,
And the skies are sunlit for him.
As sharply sweet to my heart he seems
As the fragrance of acacia.
My own dear love, he is all my dreams,—
And I wish he were in Asia.

"LOVE SONG"
BY: DOROTHY PARKER

PARAPHRASES
My own dear love, he is strong and bold
And he cares not what comes after.
His words ring sweet as a chime of gold,
And his eyes are lit with laughter.
He is jubilant as a flag unfurled—
Oh, a girl, she’d not forget him.
My own dear love, he is all my world,—
And I wish I’d never met him.
The one she loves does what is on his mind, and doesn't think of the outcome. He speaks with kindness and he is lit with joy. She loves with him all she has, but she wishes she could forget him/ move on.
He isn't satisfied with everything. He seems to have everything figured out. He means a lot to her, but she wishes that he was far away from her. That she could remove him from her heart.
His presence and love goes fast. He is very strong and stubborn. She loves him so much, but she loves that she hates him.
