Solution

The Poet refers to Noon as 12 PM, a very short time. A minute preceding or succeeding Noon is either morning or evening. In a relationship based on love, there is an opportune time when two people understand each other perfectly. Similarly, the shadows before and after Noon are meant to describe the actors’ relationship in love before and after the right time when their relationship has matured and they understand each other perfectly. The shadow before noon is clear whereas afternoon it fades away.
