„Большая часть женщин знает, что секс хорошо помогает от головной боли.“

„Если не двое, то что остается? Один я, один ты.“


„What is the opposite of two?
A lonely me, a lonely you.“
Opposites, More Opposites, and a Few Differences

„Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.“
Collected Poems, 1943-2004

„Odd that a thing is most itself when likened“ Collected Poems 1943-2004

„Writing poetry is talking to oneself; yet it is a mode of talking to oneself in which the self disappears; and the product's something that, though it may not be for everybody, is about everybody.“

„Teach me, like you, to drink creation whole/ And casting out myself, become a soul.“

„All that we do is touched with ocean, and yet we remain on the shore of what we know“


„A thrush, because I'd been wrong,
Burst rightly into song
In a world not vague,
not lonely,
Not governed by me only.“

„It is always a matter, my darling,
Of life or death, as I had forgotten. I wish
What I wished you before, but harder.“

„Step off assuredly into the blank of your own mind. Something will come to you. Although at first You nod through nothing like a fogbound prow, Gravel will breed in the margins of your gaze“

„Now winter downs the dying of the year,
And night is all a settlement of snow;
From the soft street the rooms of houses show
A gathered light, a shapen atmosphere,
Like frozen-over lakes whose ice is thin
And still allows some stirring down within.“
Collected Poems, 1943-2004


„the beautiful changes
In such kind ways,
Wishing ever to sunder
Things and things’ selves for a second finding, to lose
For a moment all that it touches back to wonder.“
Collected Poems, 1943-2004

„If the king had given me for my own
Paris, his citadel,
And I for that must leave alone
Her whom I love so well,
I'd say then to the Crown
Take back your glittering town
My darling is more fair, I swear.
My darling is more fair.“
The Misanthrope

„Young as she is, the stuff / Of her life is a great cargo, and some of it heavy: / I wish her a lucky passage.“ Collected Poems, 1943-2004

„I die of thirst here at the fountainside.“
