"The Heart Is Hunger, Said Youth" by Hunter Madsen

"The Heart Is Hunger, Said Youth"

  
    
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"
