W. H. Auden

W. H. Auden
by Joseph

W.H. Auden said that poetry makes nothing happen,
But what did he know?

He was a poet in the midst of creation
A will 'o the wisp
A cat on the fence
A dog lying in the manger

Thoughts build cities, ideas build civilizations
Art builds castles in which dreams reside

The poet captures the light of life
And holds it for a minute
Just in time to capture it
Before letting go...
