The first poem is titled Acquainted with the Night (DiYanni 972). The poem is set in an urban place at night, a fact revealed when he says, “I have out-walked the furthest city light” (Line 3). The symbols of darkness (night) and light are relevant in the poem as they show the two sides of life as seen by the poet. They represent the life’s paradoxical mix which is further echoed by the luminary clock, which proclaims that both life and death is “…neither wrong nor right” (line 13). In the poem Design (DiYanni 975), this mix is represented by the description of three living thing: the spider, the flower and the moth. The speaker says that they are “Assorted characters of death…” (line 4). The assorted creatures are white by coincidence, and they are designed to fit the theme. Although the three creatures are white, which depicts some hope. they represent destruction in a food chain.
In the poem Desert Places (DiYanni 976), we get the picture that life and death are inseparable phenomena. The hopelessness and bleakness of life is seen as the speaker sees “Snow falling and night falling fast…” (line 1). Snow is a symbol of life and night is a sign of death, hopelessness. To the poet, there is less hope than hopelessness in life. This can be seen as the poet understands that life itself is a paradoxical mix and human beings are prey to life’s predestinations and a creative design. In the poem Acquainted with the Night, although most people live in urban places, the speaker is lonely and depressed in the urban city.
