Allusion to Shakespeares play, A Midsummer Nights Dream Midsummer Night By Em and Tess The poem talks of a meeting place of the two lovers, that was unique and special-the river-mentioned in the first stanza, and in the poem river,. It is described as if the lovers arent there anymore, and its just a memory. CAROL ANN DUFFY SAYS: Everything is magically

transformed by the memory of passionate, romantic love: the heron's grey feathers are "a silver gown"; a rose opens and blooms at midnight. "Shakespeare's shooting star" refers to the passing of time as well as the greatness of his love poetry and to his own affinity with Midsummer Night. 1 Stanza st Personification; River dressed in turquoiseinanimate objects are almost brought to life-by their love? Sensual words at the end of lines; me, you,

held, smell-only two people-time seems to slow down; fossils. Only have each other, or the memory of how it used to be. There is an absence of people in the poem suggested by the word Not and the beginning of almost each stanza. 2 Stanza nd Reference to Elegy; not there to lie on the grass of our graves-also shows death of their love-the place where they were alive.

Shakespeares shooting star-refers to passing of time - the death of their love as a result of their idealised view of each other. (links to Gatsby and Tess) when a strange bird sang..above our heads- birds singing could mean freedom/happiness?-word strange changes the meaning? 3 Stanza rd Begins with the end of the second stanza- but elsewhere, far. the word but is a signpost word and could symbolise a

change in tone. Not there for the magic hour when time becomes love when in a relationship an hour seems like no time at all and throughout this collection there is a constant battle between time and love and at this moment love seems to win. young ghosts- this could symbolise the memories of the love affair when it was young and in the honeymoon phase Images are elaborated through the memories of love and passion the herons rages were a silver gown Stanza 4 This stanza has some ambiguous imagery

found again by ourselves, you, me, mirrored in water. Her relationship is coming to an end, the two people attempt to find their identities/souls again - to find our souls implying that when they are together their souls have merged.
