Splendour in the Grass -- William Wordsworth

Guest poem sent in by KassieB :
(Poem #1173) Splendour in the Grass
 What though the radiance
 which was once so bright
 Be now for ever taken from my sight,
 Though nothing can bring back the hour
 Of splendour in the grass,
 of glory in the flower,
 We will grieve not, rather find
 Strength in what remains behind;
 In the primal sympathy
 Which having been must ever be;
 In the soothing thoughts that spring
 Out of human suffering;
 In the faith that looks through death,
 In years that bring the philosophic mind.
-- William Wordsworth
William Wordsworth's 'Splendour in the Grass' is the poem we hear in the 1961
movie by the same name.  Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty starred and Wood was
nominated for an Academy Award for her role as Deanie, Beatty's girlfriend.

The poem is from Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early
Childhood, which begins with the majestic:

  There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
  The earth, and every common sight,
            To me did seem
        Apparelled in celestial light,
  The glory and the freshness of a dream.

The entire ode is well worth reading.

My first introduction to Splendour in the Grass was on a day when I was home
from school, sick with the flu. I passed the day watching movies on the
television. Though I was only about eleven or twelve years old, the poem
really resonated. And who can forget Natalie Wood struggling to read it in
her English class, then hearing her recite it again, this time much wiser,
at the end of the movie?

The movie was on yesterday, I had to hold back tears. My girlfriend from high school so much reminded me of Deanie in the Splendor In The Grass movie. I miss her so much even today. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower, we will grieve not; rather find strength in what remains behind.

I too have a copy of the movie quote hung in a private location of my home. I’ve read and understand all the interpretations of it and like them all. But for me, it has a special meaning;, as I “find strength” in dealing with the loss of a loved one in the value their presence in my life gave me
