“Find here: poetry’s virtues/pleasures. Gorgeous witness. Silence muscled with qualities. [ . . . ] The strength of purpose and hearkening needed to walk in beauty’s strangeness. Its sensuousness; its intimacy (especially with necessity) that supples its language. Patience of soul spun into physical brilliance. Time present and antique, interior and exterior, ‘feather of hair in one hand, / scissors in another, not the heart / beating but what might return over the heart.’ These are the most beautiful poems I know.”—Liz Waldner
