You Must Read Poetry

Posted by Remy on April 5, 2010

“O Bible chopped and crucified
in hymns we hear but do not read,
none of the milder subtleties
of grace or art will sweeten these
stiff quatrains shovelled out of four-square-
they sing of peace, and preach despair;
yet they gave darkness some control,
and left a loophole for the soul.”

from Waking Early Sunday Morning by Robert Lowell
