Only Hate was happy

Walk on in peace, Mandela

A tear for Mandela today...

Power and peace he alone placated, the rarest of words - Mandela - as fated.

A line from Auden,
another rare word, from a poem for Freud, a curious bird:

'Only Hate was happy' he wrote
when Freud died

With Mandela, even Hate is denied.
