describe the line "both wry in laboured ease of loss"?
The above line is taken from the poem "A Photograph" . In the poem the mother looks at the photograph and remembers her cousins and her childhood. The mother remembers the photograph with a fondness as well as with a sense of loss because that time would never return. Similarly the poet feels upset that the laughter of her mother will never return to her.The sea holiday in the photograph was the past of the poet's mother and the laughter is the past of the poet. The loss of laughter and the loss of mother were remembered with a great difficulty. Both the losses were natural and human has to accept the law of nature.
