Robert Creeley


No knowledge rightly understood
can deprive us of the mirth of flowers.
--Edward Dahlberg

No thing less than one thing
or more--

no sun
but sun--

or water
but wetness found--

What truth is it
that makes men so miserable?

Days we die
are particular--

This life cannot be lived
apart from what it must forgive.

--Robert Creeley

fr.  Pieces
[New York: Scribner's, 1969]
