"Please Let Blake Come Back to Me"
The windiest militant trash
Important Persons shout
Is not so crude as our wish:
What mad Nijinsky wrote about Diaghilev
Is true of the normal heart;
For the error bred in the bone
Of each woman and each man
Craves what it cannot have,
Not universal love
But to be loved alone.
- W. H. Auden, from "September 1, 1939"
