Poem description: The poem starts from the perspective of the wind going through water and a grassy field. The speaker is standing on a hill and asks, “Who am I?” He asks the bug, which flies away from the grass. He sees his own shadow enlarging and runs to the sunset, saying “Don’t let that shadow be me!” The sun departs. The speaker falls to the darkness, literally, and is buried. But not satisfied with a typical death, he takes it deeper and falls down past the coffin/plank and lands on the unknown proclaiming, “Truly I!”
