FUNERAL BLUES

W.H. Auden


Watch the video�and put the lines in each stanza in the correct order.

�Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
�Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

�Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,�
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum�

�Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
�Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
�Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
�Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
��
�My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
�I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.
�He was my North, my South, my East and West,
�My working week and my Sunday rest,�

For nothing now can ever come to any good.
�Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;��
�Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,�
�The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
