Under the Waterfall
Important points- Voices, places, time, characterisation and structure
The poem starts with a speech mark, showing that he is speaking either to us or someone else.
'Shroud of gray' - forgetfulness, a thinkening.
Lots of imagery of Time, 'I never' ' in the burn of august'
The second stanza is another speaker, we are not told who.
'we drank from that glass together' - symbolises there relationship
trying to retrive the glas is symbolism of him trying to remember the love the pair had, he finds it hard
Under the Waterfall Continued
Assuming it's a female speaker, apart from 17-20, which may be Hardy
'Silent interlocutor'- Replying to someone, you can tell someone is listening
the only real 'prime love rhyme' she knows is the power of water and waterfalls
Lost glass represents lost love, just out of reach
