Vers De Société Analysis



Author: poem of Philip Larkin Type: poem Views: 4



My wife and I have asked a crowd of craps

To come and waste their time and ours: perhaps

You'd care to join us
? In a pig's arse, friend.

Day comes to an end.

The gas fire breathes, the trees are darkly swayed.

And so Dear Warlock-Williams: I'm afraid--



Funny how hard it is to be alone.

I could spend half my evenings, if I wanted,

Holding a glass of washing sherry, canted

Over to catch the drivel of some bitch

Who's read nothing but Which;

Just think of all the spare time that has flown



Straight into nothingness by being filled

With forks and faces, rather than repaid

Under a lamp, hearing the noise of wind,

And looking out to see the moon thinned

To an air-sharpened blade.

A life, and yet how sternly it's instilled



All solitude is selfish. No one now

Believes the hermit with his gown and dish

Talking to God (who's gone too); the big wish

Is to have people nice to you, which means

Doing it back somehow.

Virtue is social. Are, then, these routines



Playing at goodness, like going to church?

Something that bores us, something we don't do well

(Asking that ass about his fool research)

But try to feel, because, however crudely,

It shows us what should be?

Too subtle, that. Too decent, too. Oh hell,



Only the young can be alone freely.

The time is shorter now for company,

And sitting by a lamp more often brings

Not peace, but other things.

Beyond the light stand failure and remorse

Whispering Dear Warlock-Williams: Why, of course--
