Naughty Auden

Dear All:

As you've probably figured out by now, I have a soft spot for W.H. Auden. Here's one reason why:

As the Poets Have Mournfully Sung
by W. H. Auden

As the poets have mournfully sung,
Death takes the innocent young,
[The rest of the poem has been removed because it’s almost certainly still in copyright. But I doubt you’ll have any trouble finding it on the Web.]

No exposition needed today.

All best,
