Help me please with One way of love by Robert Browning full analysis
All June I bound the rose in sheaves.
Now, rose by rose, I strip the leaves
And strew them where Pauline may pass.
She will not turn aside? Alas!
Let them lie. Suppose they die?
The chance was they might take her eye.
How many a month I strove to suit
These stubborn fingers to the lute!
To-day I venture all I know.
She will not hear my music? So!
Break the string; fold music's wing:
Suppose Pauline had bade me sing!
My whole life long I learned to love.
This hour my utmost art I prove
And speak my passion---heaven or hell?
She will not give me heaven?'Tis well!
Lose who may---I still can say,
Those who win heaven, blest are they!
I need it today If possible or tomorrow ,I have a presentaion
pls pls help ,I'm counting on you

In this poem Robert Browning seems very philosophical about what a heartbroken suitor should do if he or she cannot get the person they want in terms of love - and how to cope with rejection. He is saying that a person's commitment to their Christian religion and their God will ensure that they win the most the most important prize of all - heaven. He uses beautiful gentle lyricism and imagery to achieve this in the lilting quietness of the rhyme and metre in the lines and the picture of the beautiful rose. He shows how the speaker tries everything to try to get a girl to notice him, strewing rose petals, singing and so on - but nothing works. He has spent much of his life learning to love, but rejection does not necessarily have to mean hell.
