Thanks for introducing me to these works, and helping me appreciate how they share a view of enduring relationships of love, Jane.

I love the very simple Larkin poem 'To put one brick upon another'. Simple but profound. And I recently discovered 'Vers de Societe' about being antisocial, or not. It is both funny and moving as are so many of his poems.

I hate to say this, but I think Alan Bennett pointed out, in a talk on Larkin, that the hand holding was a Victorian restoration/invention.... Sorry!

Thanks, sent me to the bookshelf to pull out Collected Poems. Bought a couple of years ago and unopened, a prompt has been a good thing and I can see I won't be putting it back on the shelf in a hurry.
