"The Meadow"

By Kate Knapp Johnson


Half the day lost, staring (A)
at this window. I wanted to know (B)
just one true thing (C)

about the soul, but I left thinking (D)
for thought, and now - (E)
two inches of snow have fallen (F)

over the meadow. Where did I go, (B)
how long was I out looking (G)
for you?, who would never leave me, (H)
my withness, my here. (I)


NOTE: Free Verse

Tone

The poem "The Meadow"has a tarry tone. I think this because as the author is writing this, the author feels that his/her time has been wasted and as you look back to the poem the quotes "Half the day lost", "how long was I out looking
for you" and "but I left thinking for thought, and now two inches of snow have fallen" seems like the person in this poem has wasted time and feels like she is left alone.
