Absent Place&Mdash;An April Day


Absent Place—an April Day—
Daffodils a-blow
Homesick curiosity
To the Souls that snow—

Drift may block within it
Deeper than without—
Daffodil delight but
Him it duplicate—

by Emily Dickinson

This poem is very impressing. An excellently worded poem, it is really a great treat to read these lines, captivating. I have enjoyed a very lot. Thank you for sharing TRUE LOVE. Number one in the row is the poet as a boy, his boy's love for that teenage girl who got married with her man (this is number three as True Love) And number four is her Mum who loves her husband truly, because though a drunkard, she stayed with him and cared for him, though he constantly stayed on three high in that big white farmhouse. Through memories this True Love is created, the experience as a boy withe the mind, soul and heart of an adult person now. How sweet that reads!
