„Who stunned the dirt into noise?
Ask the mole, he knows.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: Who stunned the dirt into noise? Ask the mole, he knows. I feel the slime of a wet nest. Beware Mother Mildew. Nibble again, fish nerves. "The Lost Son," ll. 66-70

„We are afraid of what our eyes have seen:
For something is amiss or out of place
When mice with wings can wear a human face.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: He loops in crazy figures half the night Among the trees that face the corner light. But when he brushes up against a screen, We are afraid of what our eyes have seen: For something is amiss or out of place When mice with wings can wear a human face. "The Bat," ll. 5-10

„To know that light falls and fills, often without our knowing.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: To stare into the after-light, the glitter left on the lake's surface, When the sun has fallen behind a wooded island; To follow the drips sliding from a lifted oar Held up, while the rower breathes, and the small boat drifts quietly shoreward; To know that light falls and fills, often without our knowing. The Shape of the Fire," ll. 88-92

„I'll seek my own meekness.
What grace I have is enough.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: I'll seek my own meekness. What grace I have is enough. The lost have their own pace. The stalks ask something else. What the grave says, The nest denies. "Unfold! Unfold!," ll. 59-64

„At Woodlawn I Heard the dead cry“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: At Woodlawn I Heard the dead cry: I was lulled by the slamming of iron, A slow drip over stones, Toads brooding wells. The Lost Son, ll. 1-4

„All lovers live by longing, and endure:
Summon a vision and declare it pure.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: Dante attained the purgatorial hill, Trembled at hidden virtue without flaw, Shook with a mighty power beyond his will, — Did Beatrice deny what Dante saw? All lovers live by longing, and endure: Summon a vision and declare it pure. "Four for Sir John Davies," ll. 73-78

„I know the motion of the deepest stone.
Each one's himself, yet each one's everyone.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: p>Is pain a promise? I was schooled in pain, And found out what I could of all desire; I weep for what I'm like when I'm alone In the deep center of the voice and fire.I know the motion of the deepest stone. Each one's himself, yet each one's everyone.</p "The Sententious Man," ll. 31-36

„The small become the great, the great the small;
The right thing happens to the happy man.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: God bless the roots! — Body and soul are one! The small become the great, the great the small; The right thing happens to the happy man. "The Right Thing," ll. 7-9
