Proust liked to have two cups with milk, but Auden, quite to the contrary, only took one.
The poet Auden said, “Thousands have lived without love; none without water.”
Auden Spoon-bill went along parallel to the shore of the river until he saw Delilah standing in the pale green water.
Life, said Auden Spoon-bill, is pretty fine, no matter how it is arranged.
Then along the bank from the direction of the date palms came Auden Spoon-bill, he who had gone to Delilahs heart.
