Wystan Hugh Auden

The more loving one

 

 

 

Looking up at the stars,

I know quite well That, for all they care,

I can go to hell,

 

But on earth indifference is the least

We have to dread from man or beast.

 

How should we like it were the stars to burn

With a passion for us we could not return?

 

If equal affection cannot be,

Let the more loving one be me.

 

Admirer as I think I am

Of stars that do not give a damn,

I cannot, now I see them, say

I missed one terribly all day.

 

Were all stars to disappear or die,

I should learn to look at an empty sky

And feel its total dark sublime,

Though this might take me a little time.

..
