The bicycles go by in twos and threes -
There's a dance in Billy Brennan's barn to-night,
And there's the half-talk code of mysteries
And the wink-and-elbow language of delight.
Very deep poem and lyrical too
In a certain mood anyone can feel like this; not just a poet. Like you're missing out on something you should be at, but nobody thought to invite you (maybe because you inhabit a different mind zone) . So you're left with spiteful feelings and loneliness - driving you to write poetry!
another fav of mine. 'footfall tapping screcies of stone...' brilliant!
Kavanagh demonstrates his detachment from the social world of rural Ireland through his imagery. He is isolated and lonley but only so he can preform his duties as a poet. He has voluntarily abandoned this world.

This is rubbish, is he words of a brilliant dead poet must be heard.
