    What are days for?
    Days are where we live.
    They come, they wake us
    Time and time over.
    They are to be happy in:
    Where can we live but days?

    Ah, solving that question
    Brings the priest and the doctor
    In their long coats
    Running over the fields.

    I really admire Larkin's work. He is one poet that I can really relate to. Are there any other fans of Larkin's poetry?

    ah, the meloncholic whimsy inherent. what a slyly snide little piece... and as i had read it i found myself listening to meynard from perfect circle singing "i'm more than just a little curious how you're planning to go about making your amends to the dead..."

    much love :)
