D.H.Lawrence's poem is a satire on the normally accepted ideas about love. He objects to what people usually 'think' or 'say' about feelings.For thoughts can never truly represent feelings. Once you start thinking about a feeling it becomes shaded either by prejudice on the negative side or by subjective idealism and refinement on the positive side. Thus at the best even a balanced thought would be underlined by a little of either of these attitudes and fails to represent the actual feeling. Hence, though it may sound cynical, the poet prefers to back his instinct and distrust all people who say they have got feelings.For 'feeling' is not a commodity that can be had or an attitude that can be controlled by volition. He concludes that we can experience feeling in its uncorrupted,pristine form only once--- the first time we 'feel' it.

analyze it? How do you mean? do you want us to interpret it for you? or do you want us to stylistically analyze it?
