Poem Dream Land by Christina Rosetti 1 In this paraphrase of the poem I will discuss the poems plain prose meaning the purpose and themes of the poem This poem is about a lady who has fallen into a deep sleep to escape the realities of her life The poem discusses how she left the rosy morn which would be her home and family and how she left the fields of corn which would be her work on a farm or even housework for twilight cold and lorn which would be her dreamland cold and lorn meaning that there is no real presence of humankind I see this poem as her escaping with a dream but doing the escaping by going into a long sleep like a coma or some other sleeping sickness She might have gone into a deep sleep from taking a drug overdose or even by over exhausting her self until her body shut down She finds her constant dream land to be her perfect peace The poem also mentions that she can no longer feel pain or any other emotion within this dream sleep with this line She cannot feel the rain upon her hand 2 I will also comment on the figurative language used in the poem and I will explain how the figurative language enhances the poem by adding emotional color or associations to the plain sense On the first line of this poem Where sunless rivers weep is an example of personification and this helps the reader identify with this phrase because they can identify with both rivers and weeping On the third line She sleeps a charmed sleep is imagery and enhances the poem by portraying the image of deep peaceful sleep Later on the ninth and tenth lines there is imagery with She left the rosy morn She left the fields of corn because it gives a clear image of the lady giving up her
