    Youth and Love

    "When I was one-and-twenty..."

    by A. E. Housman (1859-1936)


    When I was one-and-twenty
    I heard a wise man say,
    'Give crowns and pounds and guineas
    But not your heart away;
    Give pearls away and rubies
    But keep your fancy free.'
    But I was one-and-twenty,
    No use to talk to me.

    When I was one-and-twenty
    I heard him say again,
    'The heart out of the bosom
    Was never given in vain;
    'Tis paid with sighs a plenty
    And sold for endless rue.'
    And I am two-and-twenty,
    And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

    Re: Youth and Love

    My heart broke at 19 when I was a sophomore in college.

    He was blond, bright, beautiful, a ripped runner.

    But, his heart was cold.

    I can't remember when it stopped hurting, but it did.

    I don't think on it often, but it will always be there, the rejection, the despair.

    I'm glad other joys came after in life.

    Re: Youth and Love

    The young are often told to save love for later, that now is the time to play, as if you can't love and play with the one you love.
    Youth is a time for love and learning how to love.
    Everyone wants to be heard. No one wants to listen.

    How old was the author when the poem was composed?

    It’s cute, but sort of reads like typical dried up old lady hindsight.

    If you wanted specific input, a bit of commentary from you would have been nice. It’s not too late, yet.

    Are you having romance trouble?

    I’m glad to know you’re ok.

    I like the poem, too.

    I suspect you are at an age where emotions keep you in a whirlwind. That’s ok, too. Go with it and learn. And definitely feel free to talk about it.






    Sorry, I didn’t see your image. I block most of that stuff on this site.

    That is certainly true, but I'm grateful to have real emotions, like a real person. I'm blessed.

    If it nobody can add to it, it'll move to the second page within 24 hours.

    Re: Youth and Love

    you know, they really beat the idea to young adults, teenagers and even kids that they have to experience love and sex so early. it's ridiculous. bad enough, the peer pressure from the peers will make anybody feel like shit if they're not dating by the 8th grade. terrible. at least, that was the case about 10 years ago back in high school. dunno if it's the same now for the younger crowd now. it does seem more acceptable to be a 20 year old virgin with no experience now compared to 10 years ago where someone was viewed as damaged goods. people would look down on you if you weren't fucking at a certain age.

    The poem comes from A Shropshire Lad which was published in 1896. Houseman, who was 37 at the time, was neither old nor a lady.

    "What, still alive at twenty two,
    a clean upstanding youth like you ?

    A very good parody of Housman's verse. Look it up and see the following lines. By Hugh Kingsmill. Housman thought it was good !

    Just found this thread, Jason...

    Youth and love can work...

    My first love, Vincent, and I were only 16 when we fell in love.

    We were together 7 years.

    If it hadn't been for that fuckin' car crash, he would still be with me....

    I loved him THAT much!

    I was 14 when I told another guy I loved him, insofar as I knew what love was at that age. It wasn't received well. I've never uttered those words to another guy since.

    I love my kids, I love my friends, I love my cat, but a profession of romantic love has never, and will never, be spoken to another man.

    Debatable.

    I mean we are talking about a guy that wrote poems. . .

    . . . . on JUB . . .

    . . . . and what does 37 convert to in gay years, these days?
