About poetry

Laurence Olivier

I'd like people to remember me for a diligent expert workman. I think a poet is a workman. I think Shakespeare was a workman. And God's a workman. I don't think there's anything better than a workman.

Poems

William Butler Yeats

A Drinking Song

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.

Widow's Lament

It's not quite cold enough
to go borrow some firewood
from the neighbors.

Salvatore Quasimodo

Suddenly It’s Evening

Everyone is alone at the heart of the earth,
pierced by a ray of sunshine;
and suddenly it’s evening.
