Auden is one of those folks who was important to my formative years in highschool. I just posted on his life with Chester Kallman for pride month last week. One of the saints!

I found your site by typing into Google a couple lines from this poem. I plan on copying and pasting it onto a message board where some tard tried to pass off John Mayer lyrics as his own; and not even good John Mayer lyrics, if there is such a thing.

But that's beside the point. The point is: How can you be a democrat and a Christian at the same time? Oh yeah, and from one of your pictures it looks as though you have a rather large rat perched on your shoulder.

I'll hang up and listen.


Nothing, I believed, was worse than unrequited love. Years later, I learned he was quite right.

Hugo, I mean this in a nice way: you're still emotionally very young if you believe this correct.


If emotional immaturity means placing myself in the company of Auden, mythago, I'll stand with old Wystan!

I think the point of the peom is that admiration should not expect or deserve a reward, and that "love" does not entitle one to any rewards as such.

...that love is lonely business, best done by those with some measure of stength and perspective.

...that "love" does not expect a reward etc etc
