Tell me the truth abt love WH Auden

I saw this on the N train as one of the "poetry in motion" ads.

When it comes, will it come without warning
Just as i'm picking my nose?
will it knock on my door in the morning
Or tread in the bus on my toes?
will it come like a change in the weather?
Will its greeting be courteous or rough?
will it alter my life altogether?
O tell me the truth about love.

WH Auden
