    • POEM: Funeral Blues by W.H. Auden (11/28/2009 12:46:00 AM)

      This is one of my favorite poems. I read it at my father's memorial service when my father died, and people cried, even though I had no feelings left for my father; he and his wife had abused me cruelly when I had been very sick with a torturous illness and literally looked like a concentration camp victim. I wished that I could have felt what Auden felt when the object of his love died, but I couldn't. All I could do was show my general respects. But I do know what Auden felt, just not in respects to my father. Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun, pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods, for nothing now can ever come to any good. Auden told it like it was. And I'm telling it like it was with my father. Life is not to be sugar coated. And neither is death. My father had died for me long before his actual death.
