    I Need Help...

    Hi

    The dancers wreathed and grouped in moving patterns,
    The violins were weaving a weft of silver,
    The horns were weaving a lustrous brede of gold,
    And time was caught in a glistening pattern.


    Could anybody explain to me these lines?
    Please, thank you

    What a sad poem this is!

    Weft - the threads which are used to create a pattern in weaving.
    Brede - archaic form of the word "braid"

    Time has been trapped in a glistening gold and silver tapestry created by the violins and horns, the pattern mimicked by the movements of the dancers, but time is elusive and cannot be held captive.
