I met a wonderful man,his name is AngusP. At near to sunset a time of day
known as the gloaming we were together. I remembered this poem that I
studied in high school because it expressed exactly my feelings as I had to
leave him to return to N.Y.To me he is my bouquet and I do treasure him. I
sent him an email of the poem. I will analyse its meanings for him as there
are several enterpretations.

'And in the morning glow,
You walked a way beside me
To make me sad to go' - In the morning u were besides me, n made me sad
while i was goin away for the day..
'Do you know me in the gloaming,
Gaunt and dusty gray with roaming? - But in the evening do u know that i
was so tired (gaunt and dusty gray) in the (gloaming)just b4 sunset.
'Are you dumb because you know me not,
Or dumb because you know?' - Do u behave like this intentionally or do u
really dont understand how tired i am at the end of the day.
'All for me? And not a question
For the faded flowers gay' - You ask me so many questions, u ask me that
why couldnt i giv u time? u ask me why m i tired? but u never ask those
faded flowers anything..
'That could take me from beside you
For the ages of a day?' - those flowers were here with u throughout the day
yet u dont say a word to them.
'They are yours, and be the measure
Of their worth for you to treasure,
The measure of the little while
That I've been long away' - I know they are ur flowers and u treasure them
and i only wish that u treasure this little time we have together (now that
i have been away for the whole day) as much as u treasure those flowers.
THIS IS WHAT I FEEL THE SUMMARY OF THE WONDERFUL POEM IS.. IT WAS DIFFICULT
TO DECIPHER BUT I HAD TO THINK A LOT COZ MY GAL SENT ME THIS AND SHE IS NOT
VERY EXPRESSIVE ..SO I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT SHE HAS TO TELL ME THROUGH
THIS.. NOW AS I KNOW I WILL TREASURE OUR TIME AND MY LUV WIT CARE.. THANK

Curiously, I think of the person leaving as a woman. It appears to be a
statement on the longing in our everyday lives that we may choose to feel
or not to feel. This seems to me to be a lovely statement on a
relationship that DOES work. The complex interiors of each of us are so
hard to fully know.

this poem gets me everytime i read it. It clearly explains the inuendos of
love and how we are sometimes so caught up in ourselves that we fail to see
the ones who stand before us with the best they have to offer....

This poem reminds me a lot of the relationships that i have been in. He
knows that he has so much to give and she cant see or understand what
exactly it is. The ironic thing though, is that the only thing to give is
himself, but that is an extrodinary gift and if she cant see it then there
is nothing he can do.

This is one of my all time favorite poems, becasue I think that it can be
interpreted to mean so many different things. I see it as a lost
relationship of some sort, or feeling as though someone doesn't know the
real you, and how you feel about them...
