The letter is A - Again

Born in 1907 in York, England, to
George Augustus Auden and Constance Rosalie Bicknell Auden

British from birth, but American from 1946,
he was educated at Christ Church, Oxford.

After toying with atheism he returned to Christianity
and the Anglican Church 

W.H. Auden died in 1973 in Vienna, Austria

he is a favourite.....

More 'As' as we start another round, here, at ABC Wednesdasy

I do like W H Auden but 'Stop all the Clocks' does it for me
particularly when it was recited in the movie 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'...

Beet wishes.
