Wystan Hugh Auden was born in York, England on this day in 1907.
  “The More Loving One” by W.H. Auden “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 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. 

I’m looking forward to poetry month in April. I think I might record myself reading a poem each day.

“The More Loving One” by W.H. Auden

“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 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.

I’m looking forward to poetry month in April. I think I might record myself reading a poem each day.

  1. Whiskey. I get to drink whiskey and I don’t give a shit if it ‘looks awesome’ or ‘is so tough’ because it’s not, it’s just delicious and I will drink too much of it and I will burp in your face and then order a taco. Screw you, that’s what I do.
  2. I don’t have to wear heels, but I can if I want…

What Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” would have sounded like in the 20s!

Perfect.

I like this better than the original

Perfect for my 20s themed bday party.

Just kinda nodding and going exaaaaactly. 

So I don’t post many things on tumblr….but this is fantastic. This kid. He’s great, holy jeez O.o

I totally forgot about this song until Alex Clare did a fantastic remake of it :) It took a ridiculous amount of time to find on the internet (there are a bunch of fake versions that suck lots) so I thought I’d post it. Prince’s When Doves Cry

I loved this song by Ed Sheeran when I first heard it a while ago; when I heard A-Team on the radio, I thought it was this song, and I was really confused when I didn’t hear the rap part; I like this version much, much more because I think it tells the story better :)
