It is little wonder that this poem was sometimes titled as an ode to absence, since the absence of the real beloved is continually exerting itself on the tone of the fantasy. 28). The ‘mark’ implies that each glance has already slid away (Old French glaichier, to slip) before even received, leaving just an indent or memory. 32), an evanescent glow, only barely present in a landscape of soft half-light.
