Frasi Theodore Roethke

Pubblicità

„Those who are willing to be vulnerable move among mysteries.“

— Theodore Roethke, Straw for the Fire: From the Notebooks of Theodore Roethke

Pubblicità

„Over the gulfs of dream
Flew a tremendous bird“

— Theodore Roethke
Context: Over the gulfs of dream Flew a tremendous bird Further and further away Into a moonless black, Deep in the brain, far back. "Night Crow," ll. 4-8

„Is pain a promise? I was schooled in pain“

— 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

„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

Pubblicità

„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

„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

„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
