W. H. Auden, “Stop all the clocks . . .”

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos 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 thought that love would last for ever: 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.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

POLISH TRANSLATION

Dla naszego kochanego Maxa~

Wystan Hugh Auden

Blues pogrzebowy

Niech staną zegary, zamilkną telefony, Dajcie psu kość, niech nie szczeka, niech śpi najedzony, Niech milczą fortepiany i w miękkiej werbli ciszy Wynieście trumnę. Niech przyjdą żałobnicy. Niech głośno łkając samolot pod chmury się wzbije I kreśli na niebie napis: „On nie żyje!” Włóżcie żałobne wstążki na białe szyje gołębi ulicznych, Policjanci na skrzyżowaniach niech noszą czarne rękawiczki. W nim miałem moją Północ, Południe, mój Zachód i Wschód, Niedzielny odpoczynek i codzienny trud, Jasność dnia i mrok nocy, moje słowa i śpiew. Miłość, myślałem, będzie trwała wiecznie: myliłem się. Nie potrzeba już gwiazd, zgaście wszystkie, do końca; Zdejmijcie z nieba księżyc i rozmontujcie słońce; Wylejcie wodę z morza, odbierzcie drzewom cień. Teraz już nigdy na nic nie przydadzą się.

Tłum. Paweł Lesisz

  1. Dear Friends, Rosette
    We are all so blessed
    To have had him in our life for a while
    Our hearts are broken
    We try to pull us together..
    We all miss him more than words can say
    People around the world are crying..
    and barely we understand this freaky world..

    .. but some angel asked me today, to write this to you
    You wrote: „I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.”
    Love last forever! – remember that, no matter where we are right now.
    .. and this love will last forever, until we meet each other again
    .. just believe it, .. believe to the end..

    Wherever life may lead you
    He will be there too – with you
    You can touch him in the air
    You can see him in the sky
    You can feel him in the sunshine
    Remember, he is still next to you
    Just keep all the memories in your heart

    See you again soon, cause the time never existed

  2. Beautiful Rosette, my hearts love goes out to you for your loss. But remember the last year you had with Max. He trusted you and relied on you. And you did the same with him. Keep that close to your heart. IN your hearts center and use that as a driving force to bring more truth, more symbology to the world, more awareness to people,…let that goodness of yours and Max’s relationship enrich you every single day.
    Truth comes in time for certain subjects of the subjects, if you catch my drift.
    Know this. Know that silence cannot stay silenced.
    I send forth my condolences for yoir hearts pain and to all people whom feel this great man’s life leave too soon.
