Question: I have to analyze this poem for english class!. Help please!!? !?
here is the poem:


Do these fields which lie before me,
Tell of ancient lingering minds,
And shall our will succumb to forces,
Of history, and all mankind!.

We find ourselves in times obscure,
Like oranges in orchards pure,
Which dripping juice of beauty sweet,
Still find themselves in searing heat!.

But I predict a stark implosion,
And I predict that all shall fall,
For he who wastes till e'er after,
Shall live to see tomorrow stall!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

well, here's my interpretation -

it's about a person who wakes up after a long night of drinking, and while he/she still feels/remembers the drunkeness (the dripping juice of beauty sweet) he/she also is waking up to reality (the searing heat), and realizes that he/she can't keep on partying forever (wastes til e'er after)!. otherwise sorrow awaits (a stark implosion, etc)!.

that's just my take!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

Look at the theme, what images appear in your mind!? What metaphors are used!? Where is he author headed!? Why that title, and how does it fit!? What does he say individually and corporately!? (That is to one person and to mankind as a whole!.)Www@QuestionHome@Com
