The Charm by Rupert Brooke

IN darkness the loud sea makes moan;
And earth is shaken, and all evils creep
About her ways.
Oh, now to know you sleep!
Out of the whirling blinding moil, alone, 5
Out of the slow grim fight,
One thought to wing—to you, asleep,
In some cool room that’s open to the night
Lying half-forward, breathing quietly,
One white hand on the white 10
Unrumpled sheet, and the ever-moving hair
Quiet and still at length!…

Your magic and your beauty and your strength,
Like hills at noon or sunlight on a tree,
Sleeping prevail in earth and air. 15

In the sweet gloom above the brown and white
Night benedictions hover; and the winds of night
Move gently round the room, and watch you there.
And through the dreadful hours
The trees and waters and the hills have kept 20
The sacred vigil while you slept,
And lay a way of dew and flowers
Where your feet, your morning feet, shall tread.
And still the darkness ebbs about your bed.
Quiet, and strange, and loving-kind, you sleep. 25
And holy joy about the earth is shed;
And holiness upon the deep.

before you start to analyze poem you need to
1-understand the meaning of poem
2-the background of whoever wrote it
3-think that you're there

I will analuze the first line

IN darkness the loud sea makes moan;
it's the sound of tide or storm

And earth is shaken, and all evils creep
earthquake (a war that let your beloved down to hell!)

you do the rest:)

well..by reading too many of poems you will get more experience.
I never liked reading poem but when I was in high school a teacher there taught me how to read and how understand it...some teachers will ask you to memorize an some text after the next page which is wrong...you should let the student express himself/herself..give him/her a paper and let her/him write his feelings before reading the prepared text.
