W.H.Auden poem on grief and sorrow

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the piano and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thoughts that love would last forever: I was wrong
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
