Short Poem of the week:


The desires of the heart are as crooked as corkscrews, Not to be born is the best for man; The second-best is a formal order, The dance’s pattern; dance while you can.   W.H. Auden, So he wrote in “Death’s Echo,” in “Collected Shorter Poems.”


W.H. Auden “If I Could Tell You” (“Collected Shorter Poems 1927-1957”), which arises naturally from two colloquial idioms—“Time will tell” and, “I told you so”:

Time will say nothing but I told you so.
Time only knows the price we have to pay;
If I could tell you I would let you know.

If we should weep when clowns put on their show,
If we should stumble when musicians play,
Time will say nothing but I told you so. . . .

The winds must come from somewhere when they blow,
There must be reasons why the leaves decay;
Time will say nothing but I told you so. . . .

Suppose the lions all get up and go,
And all the brooks and soldiers run away;
Will Time say nothing but I told you so?
If I could tell you I would let you know.
