I first read this poem in 1957 and I was 12 years old. I memorized is then and it was my first recollection of knowing something about life from a poem.
"Art can tell the truth obliquely"
I am now since married over 40 years and NEVER forgot the insight I took from this poem which, in part, is that men need to show their love in many ways now just to save love but to nourish it lovingly.
Today my wife and I were looking out the window and were admiring a blossoming azalea and I said to her it should be a blossoming peach. Hence the revisit to this wonderful/powerful poem. JJH
