Stop all the clocks – a poem by W.H. Auden

One day, while trawling through my LitBlogger RSS feeds I found W H Auden’s poem on BlookLust’s Blog. The first time I heard this poem was in a movie, Three Weddings and a Funeral. I found the words so very profound, it makes me want to stand in silence as a mark of respect of those we’ve loved and lost, similar to when I hear The Last Post on Anzac Day or when I hear the bagpipes at a memorial. When I read it aloud it makes my voice escape me and tears well up.
