At first glance it seems the relationship is largely one way — that modern cinema is less enamoured with poetry than with poets' life stories. Il Postino saw Philippe Noiret play Pablo Neruda, a man whose life was so full of cinematic opportunity he could feature again in several films, whether cast in his incarnation as a benevolent South American Schindler orchestrating the transport of refugees to Chile during the Spanish civil war, or fleeing his lover in Burma after he awoke to see her, through the mosquito net, circling his bed with a kitchen knife.
The life of the poet — the perceived freedoms and hardships — provides an intensifying prism through which to view the historical moment. These films then have a knock-on effect as publishers respond to a fleeting increase in public interest. A collection of Auden poems was brought out shortly after Four Weddings and a Funeral, with the film's leading man on the cover.
Auden's Funeral Blues , brought to mainstream attention by the film, was a poem which had originally been written as a parody for a verse-play. Although cinema may not outwardly seem to have any debt to poetry, in the films' skeletons — their screenplays — we can see a similar paring down of language, an immediacy of and reliance on the image. He who would know the secret of both worlds, Will find the secret of them both, is Love. A smile costs nothing, but gives much- It takes but a moment, but the memory of it usually lasts forever.
The poetry at the heart of cinema
None are so rich that can get along without it- And none are so poor but that can be made rich by it. It enriches those who receive, without making poor those who give- It creates sunshine in the home, Fosters good will in business, And is the best antidote for trouble- And yet it cannot be begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is of no value Unless it is given away.
Some people are too busy to give you a smile- Give them one of yours- For the good Lord knows that no one needs a smile so badly As he or she who has no more smiles left to give. These Spiritual Inspiration Poems are all wonderful words of wisdom and love. O Master grant that I may never seek So much to be consoled as to console To be understood as to understand To be loved as to love with all my soul. Make me a channel of your peace It is in pardoning that we are pardoned It is in giving to all men that we receive And in dying that we are born to eternal life.
The soul rejoices when alone And feels her glorious empire free Sees God in every shining stone And revels in variety. Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves; they will have no end of fun. Blessed are those who can tell a mountain from a molehill; they will be saved a lot of bother.

Blessed are those who know how to relax without looking for excuses; they are on their way to becoming wise. Blessed are those who are sane enough not to take themselves too seriously; they will be valued most by those about them. Happy are you if you can take small things seriously and face serious things calmly; you will go far in life. Happy are you if you can appreciate a smile and forget a frown; you will walk on the sunny side of the street. Happy are you if you can be kind in understanding the attitudes of others even when the signs are unfavourable; you may be taken for a fool, but this is the price of charity.
Blessed are those who think before acting and pray before thinking; they will avoid many blunders. Happy are you if you know how to hold your tongue and smile, even when people interrupt and contradict you or tread on your toes; the Gospel has begun to seep into your heart.
Above all, blessed are you who recognise the Lord in all whom you meet; the light of truth shines in your life for you have found true wisdom. I offer you peace. I offer you Love. I offer you Friendship. I see your Beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source.
I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love. Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits. Believe in yourself. Consider things from every angle. Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches. Give more than you planned to.
Hang onto your dreams. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
