The Two Analysis

Author: Poetry of W.H. Auden Type: Poetry Views: 259

Sponsored Links

You are the town and we are the clock.

We are the guardians of the gate in the rock.

The Two.

On your left and on your right

In the day and in the night,

We are watching you.Wiser not to ask just what has occurred

To them who disobeyed our word;

To those

We were the whirlpool, we were the reef,

We were the formal nightmare, grief

And the unlucky rose.Climb up the crane, learn the sailor's words

When the ships from the islands laden with birds

Come in.

Tell your stories of fishing and other men's wives:

The expansive moments of constricted lives

In the lighted inn.But do not imagine we do not know

Nor that what you hide with such care won't show

At a glance.

Nothing is done, nothing is said,

But don't make the mistake of believing us dead:

I shouldn't dance.We're afraid in that case you'll have a fall.

We've been watching you over the garden wall

For hours.

The sky is darkening like a stain,

Something is going to fall like rain

And it won't be flowers.When the green field comes off like a lid

Revealing what was much better hid:


And look, behind you without a sound

The woods have come up and are standing round

In deadly crescent.The bolt is sliding in its groove,

Outside the window is the black removers' van.

And now with sudden swift emergence

Come the woman in dark glasses and humpbacked surgeons

And the scissors man.This might happen any day

So be careful what you say

Or do.

Be clean, be tidy, oil the lock,

Trim the garden, wind the clock,

Remember the Two.
