from BBC News:
Haul of rare Larkin poems found
Heretofore unpublished poems by Philip Larkin have been discovered in England, including a quite moving elegy to his father, about whom he famously wrote “They fuck you up, your mum and dad...” The newly discovered poem, “And Yet,” is a brief & eloquent meditation on life & death.

Howdy just came upon your website from Yahoo after
I typed in, “And Yet… A new Philip Larkin poem comes to light after a half century lost in the library” or perhaps something similar (can’t quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I’m happy I
found it because your content is exactly what I’m searching for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don’t mind if I collect some information from here
and I will of course credit you as the source. Thank you.
