Freddy

Rating: 2.9
Nobody knows what I feel about Freddy
I cannot make anyone understand
I love him sub specie aet ernitaties
I love him out of hand.
I don't love him so much in the restaurants that's a fact
To get him hobnob with my old pub chums needs too much tact
He don't love them and they don't love him
In the pub lub lights they say Freddy very dim.
But get him alone on the open saltings
Where the sea licks up to the fen
He is his and my own heart's best

A lovely poem about love as they experienced. But the late poet Stevie Smith ought to correct his type mistakes first before editing. Smooth reading poem. Thank you for sharing to the family of the late poet. CONGRATULATIONS for the POD

Misspellings aside, it's a great poem. It's always a wonder why some people are drawn to each other while others find them so mismatched.
