Well, it made me smile.

this is a brilliant (yours is not so brilliant), it is not about oats its about wild oats.

i love the line ...'I was too selfish, withdrawn, and easily bored to love'...hes so self deprecating...yet honest!

Hey, I thinnk this poem is really good, it shows Larkins pesismistic attitude to relationships and how he seemed to believe real love could not be sustained. He focuses on the sexual aspects of the "bosomy rose". Larkin ultimately is un romantic and like most men just wants a quick fumble.
