Send me out into another life
                lord because this one is growing faint
     I do not think it goes all the way

                      --W.S. Merwin

 

 

In W.S. Merwin we admired not only the poetry but also the poet.

Which unfortunately can't be said for a lot of poets.

So many couldn't live up to the beauty and profoundness of their own words.

But then, truth be told, neither can I.

Alas, I am better on paper than in person.

...which I suspect is why many of us write.
