Pandemic Poetry from W. B. Yeats

“The Best Lack All Conviction, while the Worst / Are Full of Passionate Intensity.”

A Few Stanzas from W.H. Auden’s “In Memory of W.B. Yeats”

Follow, poet, follow right
To the bottom of the night,
With your unconstraining voice
Still persuade us to rejoice;

With the farming of a verse
Make a vineyard of the curse,
Sing of human unsuccess
In a rapture of distress;

In the deserts of the heart
Let the healing fountain start,
In the prison of his days
Teach the free man how to praise.
