    My sister is getting married in May. We watched "Four Weddings and a Funeral" the other night and I am looking for the script or just the name of the poem (and/or the poet who created it) that Matthew quotes at the funeral of his partner...Urgent, I wanna give it to her as a wedding present!!!

    Thanks for your troubles,

    Jan from Berlin/Germany

    Funeral Blues



    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.



    W. H. Auden
