Frasi Theodore Roethke

Pubblicità

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

—  Theodore Roethke
Praise to the End! (1951), 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

„Death was not. I lived in a simple drowse:
Hands and hair moved through a dream of wakening blossoms.“

—  Theodore Roethke
The Lost Son and Other Poems (1948), Context: Death was not. I lived in a simple drowse: Hands and hair moved through a dream of wakening blossoms. Rain sweetened the cave and the dove still called; The flowers leaned on themselves, the flowers in hollows; And love, love sang toward. "The Shape of the Fire," ll. 73-77

„What's left is light as a seed;
I need an old crone's knowing.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Words for the Wind (1958), Context: How can I rest in the days of my slowness? I've become a strange piece of flesh, Nervous and cold, bird-furtive, whiskery, With a cheek soft as a hound's ear. What's left is light as a seed; I need an old crone's knowing. "Meditations of an Old Woman: First Meditation," ll. 15-21

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

—  Theodore Roethke
Words for the Wind (1958), 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

„There's time enough.
Behold, in the lout's eye, love.“

—  Theodore Roethke
Praise to the End! (1951), Context: Beginnings start without shade, Thinner than minnows. The live grass whirls with the sun, Feet run over the simple stones, There's time enough. Behold, in the lout's eye, love. "I Cry, Love! Love!," ll. 33-39

„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.“

—  Theodore Roethke
The Lost Son and Other Poems (1948), 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

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

—  Theodore Roethke
The Lost Son and Other Poems (1948), 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
Open House (1941), 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
