Line(s) of the Day #FuneralBlues

WH Auden

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.

Taken from the incredibly moving poem ‘Funeral Blues’ (1938) by gifted poet WH Auden.

  1. I first heard this poem on the big screen while watching 4 Weddings and a Funeral. A movie moment from so long ago that I will always cherish. Just beautiful. Thanks for reminding me.

    • I listened to a radio show yesterday where they got a few of the major people involved in the film and it reminded me of this poem. Some great anecdotes. What are your other most memorable moments of the film?
