“Most people don’t know how much time even a very short poem takes, even one just dashed down–trying to get it right. And the rest of us forget.” -January 4, 1968


“The visit to Darragh and Bridgehampton awakened a great longing for country living: I like the city, but I like to see things growing, to see blue and trembling skies, walk on the winter shore: the whole bag of tricks.” -October 15, 1984
