on the "aster flower." What time of year might be symbolized by the aster flower and the other images of plant life found in the poem? How do these images contribute to the overall mood of the poem?
The only "aster flower" poem I know of is from the giant among men, Robert Frost.
Now there is a poem in German, by Gottfried Benn, but I am not certain you want it.
the aster flower symbolizes Fall, even late fall. Look at somber birds, withered weeds, a tree standing bear, the faded blue. What do you get from the mood? How has plant life been described during this time. BTW, my blue asters are still blooming, hanging on till a freeze.
yeah that's the problem i need help on too.
