    Teachers, what is the meaning of this opening for Eluards' poem:
    ‘You Rise the Water Unfolds’ ?

    Default Re: one line analysis

    It might make more sense in context- what are the next few lines?

    Lightbulb Re: one line analysis

    ~ You rise the water unfolds
    You sleep the water flowers

    You are water ploughed from its depths
    You are earth that takes root
    And in which all is grounded ~


    I think the over all is one metaphor, but it's kind of hard to grasp the first line.
