The shadows seem to grasp at me

    ...Tis but the light that plays among the trees! What I consider as one of the most skillfully crafted lines I have ever read. Thank you for posting. (Report) Reply

    I had a very specific reaction to this poem: it was my memory of reading Freud's analysis of humor. He argued that there is a pile-up of psychic energy when an individual hears the build up of a joke, and when the punchline hits, that tension is suddenly released and laughter is the consequence. My description sounds hopelessly cerebral, but
    my experience when the peacock appears was exactly as Freud put it - tension relieved, laughter released. End of poem. No wasted words again. (Report) Reply

    there stood the peacock with its tail feathers all spread out
    screaming out to others what love is all about. (Report) Reply

    Brilliant Adeline, many things are scary when hidden in the shadows of night. Beautifully written of course. (Report) Reply
