From W.H. Auden:

December 9, 2015

The desires of the heart are as crooked as corkscrews

Not to be born is the best for man.

The second best is a formal order

The dance’s pattern, dance while you can.

Dance, dance, for the figure is easy

The tune is catching and will not stop

Dance till the stars come down with the rafters

Dance, dance, dance till you drop.

– From “Death’s Echo”
