First Love


I ne'er was struck before that hour
With love so sudden and so sweet,
Her face it bloomed like a sweet flower

    I'm studying this for GCSE, it's a good poem, but my groovy english teacher reckons that the 4th line in the 3rd stanza should be:

    'And love's appeal to know'

    instead of 'not love's appeals to know'

    to be fair i don't know, but he's clever, and it makes more sense, as though both of them can speak their own language and understand each other perfectly. (Report) Reply

    An absolute classic! i love it. I first became aware of this poem when years ago i saw it in a magazine with a porcelaine figure of a young woman in a ball gown standing beside it! the figurine was for sale to anyone who wished to buy it and it was inspired by this poem which i thought one of the most beautiful and touching that i had ever read. I hope she was worthy of this beautiful piece john, if your listening up there! well done.x (Report) Reply

    Love is an universal subject that thrills every living orgasm on earth.
    it lights up candles of brightness even in pitch of darkness
    Mr. John Clare poem on First love is exciting and exhilarating too.
    love never wails only lovers do
    Good poem streaming sweet and cool into the chords

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
