"Final Love Note" Explication
Clare Rossini's poem "Final Love Note" is a perfect example of a poem that creates imagery with language. The title takes on a very serious sense of loss. If one were to read just the title and make a judgment as to what the poem would be about, they would probably guess the loss of a loved one, most likely through death. The speaker even gives the readers that idea in the first few lines through her language. The title and word usage of the poem makes the reader compare a human lover to what was literally lost, an elm tree. The most effective elements used in this poem are tone, symbolism, and imagery.
One finds out fairly quickly that the speaker was not referring to a human loss, but that of a huge tree that has been cut down by her house. Throughout the entire poem, however, she uses language that one would use to describe a human lover. The poem takes on a very somber tone. This, too, is due to the language and personification techniques the writer chose. She says the tree abandoned her and she says she "endured its silences" (line 8). These examples of personification cause one to automatically compare this dying tree with the loss a lover. It is extremely dramatic and moving. It takes on a more serious tone than one would usually take when cutting down a tree. This tree has brought the speaker much happiness, so she is very depressed in the loss of it.
One makes an assumption that this poem is not meant to be taken literally. Symbolism is used in this poem very successfully. The tree is used to symbolize her lover. The sky is another symbol that could be taken to stand for a new found freedom and independence. Independence and freedom are usually interpreted as wonderful qualities but there is a sense of foreboding in the speaker. She is afraid of the new freedom because she is no longer sheltered and protected by the massive elm.
The images that "Final Love Note" produces are very clear and dramatic. When reading or listening to this poem, one can see a dead tree being cut

Nipsey Hussle’s celebration of life took place on Thursday, April 11, 2019.
Thousands gathered at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to honor the legacy of the man born Ermias Joseph Asghedom who was taken too soon. Family, friends, and fans alike gathered in his honor. After his mother, Angelique Smith and his brother, Samuel Asghedom both spoke, Lauren London his longtime girlfriend, shared her final love letter.
London took the stage wearing a long white gown with black sunglasses covering her eyes. The crowd applauded her with encouragement. She started by reading a text message that she’d written while watching Nipsey Hussle sleep on the morning of Jan.21, 2019. Her words captivated the audience as people listened in silence.
She went on to unfold a letter that she’d written as she mourned his death.
London said, “I’ve never felt this type of pain before but I know God is alive. Bear with me, y’all.
“His soul was majestic; he was the strongest man that I ever knew. A gentle father, a patient leader, a divine light. He was brilliant. He researched everything, completely self-taught, constantly seeking knowledge. He would go to bed listening to these audiobooks in his headphones. I would tease him but that was really what I thought was the coolest s— ever about him.
“He would wake up in the morning and play music for the kids and light a sage and burn it around the house. He would just make sure our energy going outside would be uplifting and we could handle the day. My pain is for my 2-year-old who probably won’t remember how much his dad loved him. This is something I don’t really understand. But I know Ermias used to say you can’t possess people but you experience them. I’m so honored and blessed that I got to experience such a man. I know everyone is hurting but I’d like to say something to my city of Los Angeles. If you’re from LA, stand up. This pain is really ours; we know what Nip meant to us. We lost an incredible soul. We lost someone very rare to us and we lost a real one. We won’t ever be the same.
“In Hussle’s words, ’cause he always used to say this, ‘The game is going to test you, never fold. Stay 10 toes down, it’s not on you it’s in you and what’s in you they can’t take away.’
“He’s in all of us.
“To Ermias, the love of my life, you know what it is. Grief is the final act of love. My heart hears you. I feel you everywhere. I’m so grateful that I had you. I love you beyond this Earth.”
She closed by saying, “Until we meet again, the marathon continues,” and walked away with her fist clenched and raised in the air.

I never thought I would be writing you this letter. There was a time when I thought our love would stand the test of time and nothing could come between us.
"I kissed right here. Use only once at 12:00am CT Jan 1, 2017."
"Landon, if I could give you the world I would and one day we'll travel the world together. So until then you'll have this to remind you of me with every journey you take. —Love Blake <3"
"Well I just wanted to tell you good job! And I am so proud of you baby girl!! Don't let anything get in the way or bring you down because you're better and stronger than that! I LOVE YOU MY BEAUTIFUL! <3 Jarren"
