Question: Please, what does this poem mean!?
She comes like the husht beauty of the night
And sees too deep for laughter;
Her touch is a vibration and a light
From worlds before and after!.
Edwin Markham

Sounds to me, like he is speaking of a memory coming back to him!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.

quite possibly a past love!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.perhaps one who is now an Angel, literally, (passed on)!.!.!.!.!.!.!.and yet he is still haunted by her memory!.!.!.!.!.!.!.and she, still visits his deepest thoughts often!.

Every vibration he feels, perhaps her touch!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.

every sound he hears!.!.!.!.!.!.perhaps her whisper!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.from worlds he cannot yet comprehend nor fathom!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

He specified a gender, SHE, so he wasn't talking about an angel!. Its a woman he was talking about, which if taken metaphorically, it could represent an idea, a memory, or the alike!.Www@QuestionHome@Com


he loves her
she is very wise
she has a way with words, and is consoling
she has seen and experienced both good times and bad

I just love metaphors!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

sure sounds that way to me!.

I think he's talking about not a person!.!. but maybe the wind!? Thats just my opinion!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
