    re: The Burden Of Itys - The version I linked to is the most egregious and ridiculous example of censorship I've ever seen; organ, weed, virgin, murder, thrust, lusty, slope (yeah, sure), bloody... just crazy in the context of the poem's lines/stanzas. Rant ends here.

    Beautiful statue, perhaps Merope, as I peruse wikipedia: "The loss of one of the sisters, Merope, in some myths may reflect an astronomical event wherein one of the stars in the Pleiades star cluster disappeared from view by the naked eye."... "Merope, youngest of the Pleiades.[19] In other mythic contexts, she married Sisyphus[20] and, becoming mortal, faded away. Merope bore Sisyphus several sons including Glaucus."

    re: Originally... I can relate to this poem in more than some little measure. Interesting poet. Enjoyed very much

    A beautiful poem by Petrarca. I preferred the second version, very fluid. somewhat Shakesperian!

    "Tell" Interesting and intriguing poem. I didnīt find any direct analysis but found the Swiss legend that probably inspired the poem:
    "William Tell
    The best-known version of the (apple shot) story is in the legend of William Tell, supposedly happening to start off the Swiss revolution, written first in the 15th-century White Book of Sarnen, then in Aegidius Tschudi's 16th-century Chronicon Helveticum, and later the basis for Friedrich Schiller's 1804 play. Tell is arrested for failing to bow in respect to the hat that the newly appointed Austrian Vogt, Albrecht Gessler, has placed on a pole, and Gessler commands him to shoot an apple off his son's head with a single bolt from his crossbow. After splitting the apple with the single shot (supposedly on November 18, 1307), Tell is asked why he took more than one bolt out; at first he responds that it was out of habit, but when assured he will not be killed for answering honestly, says the second bolt was meant for Gessler's heart should he fail. In Schiller's play, the demand to shoot the apple off the boy's head motivates Gessler's murder."

    Enjoyed the various takes on William Tell, but felt that another layer of the poem needed to be bared...

    I tried some research for "Tell" and the phrase ""bloodshed" and the "peelers."" stood out and led me to "peelers" having a propensity for mayhem (oft times as police/bobbies) and ultimately to:

    see pg 99 & 100 at https://digitalcommons.lsu.edu/cgi/v..._dissertations

    LSU Doctoral Dissertations Toward a Northern Irish Pastoral: Reading the Rural in Seamus Heaney and Paul Muldoon... Stephanie Jean & Osburn Krassenstein Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College.

    Robert Duncan's poem also caused a bit of quandary till I discovered his origins... as befitting my curiosity I found a children's intro/bio to his poetic machinations: https://kids.kiddle.co/Robert_Duncan_(poet) ... then words like "rainbow" and the need for a little (separate) language made a little more sense.
