|I finally get the whole Tom Hiddleston thing.|

In recent weeks, however, I have come around to realizing the charm of Tom Hiddleston, in large part due to this spectacular GIF that I stumbled upon one night. Hiddleston most recently earned the distinction of "Sexiest Man Alive," based on an MTV.com poll. I wouldn't go as far to say that he is sexy, but I do admit that Hiddleston has gorgeous eyes and a great smile, and he seems to be sweet, quite playful, and a lot of fun. Overall, I find him adorable. Of course, it doesn't hurt that he has an alluring English accent.
You can enjoy Hiddleston's wonderful accent as he recites the 1937 W.H. Auden poem "As I Walked Out One Evening." First published in Auden's 1940 volume, Another Time, the poem "is a variant of the ballad form, made up of fifteen quatrains. It's a meditation on love and the remorseless of time, told in three voices: the narrator, a rapturous lover, and the reproachful clocks that speak back to the lover," according to Open Culture. I think Hiddleston reads the poem beautifully. Hear so for yourself by clicking on the YouTube video below.
