from Silence / by Marianne Moore b. 1887

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

DPF / Schnackenberg

From her signature poem. And, fathers and daughters.

from Supernatural Love / by Gjertrud Schnackenberg

It is my habit to identify
Carnations as “Christ’s flowers,” knowing I

Can give no explanation but “Because.”

DPF / Tate

Twenty-three years today since our father had his gun salute and American-flag folding. He was not a pilot, but he was a B-52 navigator.

from The Lost Pilot / by James Tate

fast, perfect, and unwilling
to tell me that you are doing
