For The Love Of Wisdom – May Sarton – Being A Poet

May Sarton (May 3, 1912 – July 16, 1995)

I am, I think, more of a poet…, if to be a poet means allowing life to flow through one rather than forcing it into a mold the will has shaped: if it means learning to let the day shape the work, not the work, the day, and so live toward essence as naturally as a bird or a flower.
