    I would like to see Auden's haunting ballad 'Refugee Blues' on Poem Hunter.
    Auden's best poems are first class. He wrote very ordinary poems too.

    Who has not heard the name of Auden? Auden is definitely one of the stalwarts of the post-fifties, the post-war period with a reading of his own, a poet of the Age of Anxiety full of bewilderment, loss of lives and human casualty rarely felt and expressed elsewhere. With his base rooted in socialism, Freudian psychoanalysis and Leftism, he went his way alone writing with technical expertise, inducting the commonly speech and others.

    What a wonderful gesture, that although he is not here (due to copywriter laws?) he is still here. Go find his magnificent poems, they are everywhere. My personal favorite is...in memory of William Butler Yates. RB

    How Auden can be rated within 500 top poets having no poems at all at this site (due to Copyright) . As users cannot rate poems, is his rating assigned by the admin?

Best Poem of Wystan Hugh Auden

A Walk After Dark

A cloudless night like this
Can set the spirit soaring:
After a tiring day
The clockwork spectacle is
Impressive in a slightly boring
Eighteenth-century way.

It soothed adolescence a lot
To meet so shameless a stare;
The things I did could not
Be so shocking as they said
If that would still be there
After the shocked were dead

Now, unready to die
Bur already at the stage
When one starts to resent the young,
I am glad those points in the sky
May also be counted among
The creatures of middle-age.

It's cosier ...

Read the full of A Walk After Dark

Base Words Are Uttered

Base words are uttered only by the base
And can for such at once be understood,
But noble platitudes:--ah, there's a case
Where the most careful scrutiny is needed
To tell a voice that's genuinely good
From one that's base but merely has succeeded.
