Auden’s Reading of Poem, “Friday’s Child.”

Auden8

Click this link and you will hear famous 20th century poet W.H. Auden read his composition on the life of Deitrich Bonhoeffer.  Is Friday a reference to Good Friday?  Or to the nursery rhyme:  “…Friday’s child is loving and giving…?”

[Pastorhh wonders…Perhaps it’s both?]

To quote one analysis of the work: The poem leaves us to ponder the grounds for our moral judgments if we choose not to be grounded in Bonhoeffer’s Christianity.
