In this poem, DH Lawrence has depicted the way a person experiences Nostalgia. In this poem, there is a man who is a grown man and he is thinking about all the stages through which he passed at different times in his life. He is remembering his childhood and he is longing for the times that have passed. But along with that feeling of longing also makes him feel a little guilty because he thinks that he is not being sincere and faithful to his present by remembering and longing for the times which have passed. This poem helps the readers in understanding the feelings of nostalgia when a person wants to return to the past and yet wants to remain in the present at the same time.
