I Remember shows a memory of a love story. The poem starts out with youthful images: "we had worn our feet bare..." and begins to end: "the sun blew out of sight" showing the passing of the summer love. The emphasis of the Puritan lady shows how the love that is shared has become reserved and mellow. Also, the poem is written in past tense, showing that whatever emotions that were there are not current,
