Another poet heard from….(part 16)

May Sarton? Who?

If you tend to like poetry that’s lucid, natural, literate, and profoundly observant, I think you’d like to get to know the work of May Sarton. She’s a very compelling discovery for me.

May Sarton

Here’s a sample:

“…your special gift,
A detached joy that flowers and makes bloom
The longest silence in the silent room—
And  there would be no music if you left.”

May Sarton (Eleanore Marie Sarton) (1912-1995)

May Sarton

Whenever you’re feeling the love,
tiens à la musique.

From “Evening Music” in Selected Poems of May Sarton
W. W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York, 1978, 49.
