Love After Love - Derek Walcott
Added by: Kim
I also read this poem in the Time Traveller's Wife. The poem is amazing. It took me back 8 years to a time when I was learning to love myself after a really bad relationship. It is glorious that words strung together can cause time travel and remember your thoughts and feelings. I truly love it.

I could not get past the first page in the Time Travelers Wife. The poem moved me so much. Never have i experienced anything like this. What an amazing and powerful message. So simple in its message and yet so strong. I might return the book and read more on Mr. Walcott. I am transfixed.
Our true nature

I, too, cried such tender tears the first time I read this poem and have never forgotten it. As a Buddhist practitioner, I think it touches us so deeply because it reminds us of our true nature, which is infinite and pure and the same in all of us, and which ultimately recognizes itself.

really religious
Added by: katie
the way i see it the poem love after love is really religious because of how it talks about giving wine and giving bread and it talks about self image and be thankfull for who you are.
