    Please someone help me analyse this poem, the question is what is the poets attitude towards love as shown in the poem, this is the poem (Waiting by Yevgeny Yevtushenko):
    My love will come
    will fling open her arms and fold me in them,
    will understand my fears, observe my changes.
    In from the pouring dark, from the pitch night
    without stopping to bang the taxi door
    she’ll run upstairs through the decaying porch
    burning with love and love’s happiness,
    she’ll run dripping upstairs, she won’t knock,
    will take my head in her hands,
    and when she drops her overcoat on a chair,
    it will slide to the floor in a blue heap.

    Thank you

    Uh well from a first reading it looks pretty positive but i mean it depends on what view you wanna write about and what you think i guess cuz literature is ambiguous like that meaning you can find evidence for any POV if you look hard enough - maybe look for some context for the poem too aka social/political/economical stuff happening when this was written
