Then let us smile a little space
Upon fond natures morbid grace.

I think the "Woe! woe, etcetera" is a satiric twist on the fact that we
think it so sad when someone dies, but we go on grieving long after we
really care, and our grieving rituals become more of a habit (etcetera)
than an actual meaningful act.

This is a little satirical gem. Having for years taken Housman's 'A
Shropshire Lad' perhaps a little too seriously (much as I love the song
settings by Butterly), I shall now be able to balance that with a little
chuckle at H's almost Dickensian sentimentality. Much appreciated!

i disagree. although I should be doing my math homework right now, I am
procrastinating. In fact, I think this poem is about defiance in the face
of death... because death is "obligatory" and unavoidable, it becomes
almost comedic that we fear it. of course i can't see the poem right now,
so i'm just going on short-term memory. email me if you would like to
