I Cannot Grow by W H Auden



I cannot grow;
I have no shadow
To run away from,
I only play.

I cannot err;
There is no creature
Whom I belong to,
Whom I could wrong.

I am defeat
When it knows it
Can now do nothing
By suffering.

All you lived through,
Dancing because you
No longer needed it
For any deed.

I shall never be
Different. Love me.

I like Auden's reluctance to be tied down.
