John Sloas

"Make me chaste, Lord, but not yet." To those who want to be chaste... I think we've all prayed that prayer in one way or another.


A clever walk through the mundane social patterns of life. Fanciful but furious that things are the way they are.


Great poem!
It's been singing in my memory for months after I first discovered it!
That seems to be the power of Auden's poetry: his diction is contemporary English vernacular, but he understands how to compose "memorable speech."
Nice blog too!
you may put me on your blog's email list!
