Genevieve Taggard Quotes
6 Sourced Quotes
Good poets need teachers, friends, or an occasional stranger
To say, Are you sure? I don't agree. It was an indulgent dream..
Or, Be sober, beloved. We work this side of the dark.
Planting for future people with sure hands
Is pleasure of the purest. Live and unfold!
In the dark
Defiant even now, it tugs and moans
To be untangled from these mother's bones.
Poetry has a small audience, but a large influence.
Try tropic for your balm,
And after storm, calm.
Try snow of heaven, heavy, soft, and slow,
Brilliant and warm.
Nothing will help, and nothing do much harm.
Summer is delicately made.
While it is, it is ceasing.
