Carl Sandburg

Poetry is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away. ― Carl Sandburg

Louise Glück

Sooner or later you will call my name, cry of loss, mistaken cry of recognition, of arrested need for someone who exists in memory: no voice carries to that kingdom. — Louise Glück, from “Marathon,” The Triumph of Achilles. (Ecco Pr; First Edition edition May 1987)
