Quotes (92)

Poetry isn't a profession, it's a way of life. It's an empty basket; you put your life into it and make something out of that.
Mary Oliver (b. 1935), U.S. poet. Georgia Review, p. 733 (Winter 1981).

Looking for the poem Seventy, full of beans
Looking for a poem about waking up to a deer licking her face
looking for a poem that begins with the lines if only there were a boat, long and low and loaded with all that we'd brought.. possibly published in the New Yorker 14 years ago..
