I first came across John Clare through a literary group I belonged to. He is now a favourite of mine - an uneducated man writing beautiful, from the heart poetry. After his first book was published, he was plagued by rejection - so it was not only in love, he was spurned. All his feelings pour out of this poem - never afraid to bare his soul - yet it remains a poem of beauty. John Clare was a misunderstood man - poetry was his escape.
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
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
