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.
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)
Whenever you’re feeling the love,
tiens à la musique.
From “Evening Music” in Selected Poems of May Sarton
