Background Information
Stanza 2
The dew of the morning
10 Sunk chill on my brow -
It felt like the warning
Of what i feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
15 I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.
Stanza 3
They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me -
20 Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well: -
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.
Stanza 1
1 When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
5 Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

Stanza 4
25 In secret we met -
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
30 After long years,
How should I greet thee? -
With silence and tears.
Literary devices:
Alliteration, enjambment
Rhyme scheme:
Jealousy, Sadness, Loneliness.
When we left each other, silently and crying, I suffered the most. You became distant and your kiss meant nothing anymore. With these signs, I should have seen the sadness coming.
Literary devices:
Imagery, enjambment
Rhyme scheme:
sadness, unloved
In the hours before our breakup, I was nervous. Beads of sweat covered my forehead. You broke all your promises (marriage or laws) and nobody found out about it. Whenever I hear your name, I feel guilty about our relationship.
When I here your name, I am reminded of the death of our relationship. Why did I love you so much? The people you were closest to didn't know about me. How long am I going to regret this? Too long for me to comprehend.
We met secretly, and I grieve over the fact that you could forget us so quickly when I expected you to be heartbroken. If I met you a while from now, I would say nothing due to the sadness our relationship brought us.
