For Anne Gregory Class 10 Notes


The poet is talking to Anne in this poem. He tells her that a young man will fall into hopeless passion because of her golden hair i.e., her physical beauty not for what she is. Rather she is lovable due to herself and not due to her hair. His beloved then thinks of dyeing her hair with some other colors. Then her desperate lover will love her due to herself and not because of her hair. Then the poet says that she has come across a saint last night. The saint has told him that only God can love her for herself and not for her golden hair. This poem gives us a message that only God alone can love a person for his qualities and not for beauty.
