Цитаты Ричард Уилбер


„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.“

„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.“

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

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


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

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

„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“

„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


„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

„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.“
