DPF / Hood

Last day for silence this week. And, more here and here:

from Silence / by Thomas Hood b. 1789

There is a silence where hath been no sound,
There is a silence where no sound may be,

DPF / Angelou

More silence for Ms. Angelou, once silent for years, but now forever not. With all her words scattered near and far and everywhere translated in between, never ever silent forever. And, more here:

from Kin / by Maya Angelou b. 1928

I will remember silent walks in
Southern woods and long talks
In low voices

DPF / Moore

More on silence. Or, “Moore” on silence. No Marianne Moore yet?! Fathers and daughters: here’s a quote from her father, below. More/Moore here:

from Silence / by Marianne Moore b. 1887

“The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence;
not in silence, but restraint.”

DPF / Rider

And, more silence. And, more here and here:

What are the Consequences of Silence? 53. / by Bhanu Kapil Rider b. 1968

Opening in slow motion: are you okay? Are you okay? Can
you hear me?
(I can’t)

DPF / Fleming

More silence. And, more here:

from Bone & Silence / by Gerald Fleming

…and at last Bone feels entitled to speak to Silence. There are prerequisites: proper depth, aridity, desiccation, ph balance, density, and a kind of confidence.

DPF / McHugh

Silence for this week. Love this one. More here:

from What He Thought / by Heather McHugh

“What’s poetry?
Is it the fruits and vegetables
and marketplace at Campo dei Fiori

or the statue there?”

DPF / Poe

More dreaming. I know I missed Berryman this week, but I’m still attempting not to repeat poets for as many months as I can hold out. And, more here, again:

from A Dream Within a Dream / by Edgar Allan Poe b. 1809

Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
