Lines from Auden's "Lullaby" (with a nod to Whitman and a phrase from Wordsworth)

Cliché and contention in abeyance . . .

People can be "Mortal, guilty, but to me/The entirely beautiful."

To embrace others with their opposing natures is a beginning point for authentic love.

Another point of beginning is to embrace those that are pure and even rascally pure--that we might be surprised by joy.
