  1. So like the play between stillness and movement – trembling – in this. The comma after ‘still’ – is like both a breath and a joining with the other – life/death – day/night – lover/lover. After that the poem rushes on to the final ‘rest’.


  2. I think the invocation of sunset as a symbol of the end of life is very powerful. But you’ve written this in such a way that your words could apply as well as life as to death. Skilfully done!
