look at this tangle of thorns
"I have this strange feeling that I’m not myself anymore. It’s hard to put into words, but I guess it’s like I was fast asleep, and someone came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again. That sort of feeling."
All I want is more of your time."
"Mists of tenderness enfolded mountains of longing."
"If you died it would be like my bones had been removed.
No one would know why, but I would collapse."
"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love."
"I exist in two places,
here and where you are."
Selected Poems (1965-1975)
"She seemed fragile like a moonflower – destined to bloom for a single lovely night, and then to fade and fall."
Juliet Marillier, Wildwood Dancing
"The sea is nothing but a library of all the tears in history."
