When First We Faced, And Touching Showed Analysis



Author: poem of Philip Larkin Type: poem Views: 2

When first we faced, and touching showed

How well we knew the early moves,

Behind the moonlight and the frost,

The excitement and the gratitude,

There stood how much our meeting owed

To other meetings, other loves.



The decades of a different life

That opened past your inch-close eyes

Belonged to others, lavished, lost;

Nor could I hold you hard enough

To call my years of hunger-strife

Back for your mouth to colonise.



Admitted:  and the pain is real.

But when did love not try to change

The world back to itself--no cost,

No past, no people else at all--

Only what meeting made us feel,

So new, and gentle-sharp, and strange?
