    Contrast 'I shall but love thee better after death.' with Auden's strange 'I thought love would last for ever/I was wrong'. (Report) Reply

    I remember having to memorize this poem in high school and never forgot the first verse. Though, I forgot the rest of it, I never forgot the first verse. And reading it again, made me realize what a truly beautiful poem it is, and why I always should've remembered all of it! (Report) Reply
