Christopher's comments: The poem is a sad poem because the last line, "divide us forever" tells the reader that this poem is about the breaking up of two people. The first line shows that the place where this is happening is at a very crowded place. The author uses the shade of the tree trunk and leaves (in line 12) is used to represent the gap between the two people due to some event that broke them up.Jaron's comments: This poem has a sad mood. The setting of the poem is in a crowded , shady area with thick foliage. The writer of the poem describes the coincidental meeting in stanza 4. He meets his lover and they communicate with "eye language" to express their love for each other. However, they separate from each other at the end of the poem . "shadows of tree-trunks and shadows of leaves" ( stanza 12) might refer to the obstacles in life that separates the two lovers from being together.
