(i) Tell Flesh must fade for heaven and here! Thus learnt she and lingered – joy and fear! Thus lay she a moment on my breast.

(i) The excerpt “Tell Flesh must fade for heaven and here! Thus learnt she and lingered – joy and fear! Thus lay she a moment on my breast” is taken from a poem that likely explores themes of mortality, spiritual transcendence, and the ephemeral nature of human existence. The phrase “Tell Flesh must fade for heaven and here!” suggests an understanding that physical existence is temporary and will eventually give way to a higher spiritual realm, emphasizing the inevitability of death and the transition to an afterlife. The use of the word “linger” implies a hesitancy between the attractions of earthly joy and the uncertainties of heavenly existence, symbolizing the conflict between worldly desires and spiritual aspirations.

The line “Thus lay she a moment on my breast” hints at a moment of intimacy and connection between the speaker and another person, possibly a lover or a close companion. This fleeting moment of physical closeness contrasts with the overarching theme of impermanence and serves as a reminder of the transient nature of human relationships in the face of mortality. The interplay of “joy and fear” further underscores the emotional complexity of this interaction, suggesting a mix of happiness and trepidation in the face of the unknown.
