Quotations


Poetry is a search for ways of communication; it must be conducted with openness, flexibility, and a constant readiness to listen.

My verse forms are relatively traditional (traditions alter). In general they have moved away from strict classical patterns in the direction of greater freedom -- as is usual with most artists learning a trade. It takes courage, however, to leave all props behind, to cast oneself, like Matisse, upon pure space. I still await that confidence.
