Flew a tremendous bird“

„I saw the separateness of all things!“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: I saw the separateness of all things! My heart lifted up with the great grasses; The weeds believed me, and the nesting birds. "A Field of Light," ll. 45-47

„My secrets cry aloud.
I have no need for tongue.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: My secrets cry aloud. I have no need for tongue. My heart keeps open house, My doors are widely swung. An epic of the eyes My love, with no disguise. "Open House," ll. 1-6

„What the grave says,
The nest denies.“

—  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

„Like witches they flew along rows,
Keeping creation at ease“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: Like witches they flew along rows, Keeping creation at ease; With a tendril for needle They sewed up the air with a stem; They teased out the seed that the cold kept asleep, — All the coils, loops and whorls. They trellised the sun; they plotted for more than themselves. "Frau Bauman, Frau Schmidt, and Frau Schwartze," ll. 19-25

„Let seed be grass, and grass turn into hay:
I'm martyr to a motion not my own;
What's freedom for? To know eternity.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: Let seed be grass, and grass turn into hay: I'm martyr to a motion not my own; What's freedom for? To know eternity. I swear she cast a shadow white as stone. But who would count eternity in days? These old bones live to learn her wanton ways: (I measure time by how a body sways.) "I Knew a Woman," ll. 22-28

„Love alters all. Unblood my instinct, love.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Context: The night wind rises. Does my father live? Dark hangs upon the waters of the soul. My flesh is breathing slower than a wall. Love alters all. Unblood my instinct, love. "The Renewal," ll. 7-10
