"Words, which can make our terrors bravely clear, /Can also thus domesticate a fear"
I am deeply saddened by the recent passing of Richard Wilbur (1921-2017).
Although I love so many of his poems, "A Barred Owl" (which Mr. Wilbur himself, in a reading I attended in 2007, made sure the audience understood it as both "barred" and "bard"!) is my favorite.
is a link.
So wise. He will be sorely missed, but his poetry is for the ages.
