    Today I come to that part of Christian morals where they differ most sharply from all other morals. There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which everyone loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people, except Christians, ever imagine that they are guilty themselves. I do not think I have ever heard anyone who was not a Christian accuse himself of this vice. There is no fault that makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which we are more...

At the beginning of the poem, I get the sense that the boy is a little apprehensive in meeting his girl as he states, “Cold and weighted down / with two oranges in my jacket.” Certainly two oranges aren’t going to weigh anyone down, therefore the image described...
