The Hidden Law

I was reminded recently of this stanza from Auden’s poem Aera Sub Lege (also known as The Hidden Law) — one of my favorite poems — and I thought I’d blog it:

The Hidden Law does not deny
Our laws of probability,
But takes the atom and the star
And human beings as they are,
And answers nothing when we lie.
