Modesties Analysis



Author: poem of Philip Larkin Type: poem Views: 10

Words as plain as hen-birds' wings

Do not lie,

Do not over-broider things -

Are too shy.



Thoughts that shuffle round like pence

Through each reign,

Wear down to their simplest sense

Yet remain.



Weeds are not supposed to grow

But by degrees

Some achieve a flower, although

No one sees.

An analysis of this poem, stanza by stanza.
First stanza: Larkin here basically says the plain and simple truth, spoken with simplicity has become absent, and very rarely do people speak their minds anymore \"Are too shy\"
The second stanza remarks on indesiciveness, and how no matter how many times you think something through and arrive at a conclusion, the thoughts will remain in your mind \"Yet remain\".
The final stanza basically comments on the ignorance of people in society. Larkin references a weed becoming a flower (which is essentially impossible) and compares it to how one day you might achieve something great, something which seemed impossible to attain, and nobody will be there to witness it with you \"No one sees\"
