Silver Horn

Need help analyzing this poem?

Better to see your cheek grown hollow,
Better to see your temple worn,
Than to forget to follow, follow,
After the sound of a silver horn.

Better to bind your brow with willow
And follow, follow until you die,
Than to sleep with your head on a golden pillow,
Nor lift it up when the hunt goes by.

Better to see your cheek grow sallow
And your hair grown gray, so soon, so soon,
Than to forget to hallo, hallo,
After the milk-white hounds of the moon.

I really need help with this and it'd be nice if each line or two were analyzed and summarized to make it easier to understand.

Thanks!
Madman's Song - Elinor Wylie

I think she's saying it's better not to marry a rich man.

Better to see your cheek grown hollow, Better to see your temple worn, Better to see your cheek grow sallow. And your hair grown gray, so soon, so soon,
(Better to get old)

Better to bind your brow with willow Than to sleep with your head on a golden pillow, Nor lift it up when the hunt goes by.
(better to bind your head with a soft branch of a willow tree as a pillow than to sleep with your head on a rich man's pillow or draw attention to rich men hunting for women to marry.)

Than to forget to follow, follow, And follow, follow until you die, After the sound of a silver horn. Than to forget to hallo, hallo, After the milk-white hounds of the moon.
(It's better not to follow, like women do until they die, after the call of a rich man for a woman or to urge rich men on who are like hounds baying at the moon.)
