Selected Poems - W.H. Auden, Edward Mendelson Note to the Expanded Edition
Introduction


--Who stands, the crux left of the watershed
--From the very first coming down
--Control of the passes was, he saw, the key
--Taller to-day, we remember similar evenings
--Watch any day his nonchalant pauses, see
--Will you turn a deaf ear
--Sir, no man's enemy, forgiving all
--It was Easter as I walked in the public gardens
--Since you are going to begin to-day
--Consider this and in our time
--This lunar beauty
--To ask the hard question is simple
--Doom is dark and deeper than any sea-dingle
--What's in your mind, my dove, my coney
--"O where are you going?" said reader to rider
--Though aware of our rank and alert to obey orders
--O Love, the interest itself in thoughtless Heaven
--O what is that sound which so thrills the ear
--Hearing of harvests rotting in the valleys
--Out on the lawn I lie in bed
--A shilling life will give you all the facts
--Our hunting fathers told the story
--Easily, my dear, you move, easily your head
--The Summer holds: upon its glittering lake
--Now through night's caressing grip
--O for doors to be open and an invite with gilded edges
--Look, stranger, at this island now
--Now the leaves are falling fast
--Underneath the abject willow
--Dear, though the night is gone
--Fish in the unruffled lakes
