Analysis and comments on I Remember by Anne Sexton

Comment 2 of 2, added on November 17th, 2010 at 10:15 PM.

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,
