For The Love Of Wisdom – May Swenson – Poetry

May Swenson (May 28, 1913 – December 4, 1989)

Poetry is based in a craving to get  through the curtains of things as they appear, to things as they are,  and then into the larger, wilder space of things as they are becoming. This ambition involves a paradox: an instinctive belief in the senses as  exquisite tools for this investigation and, at the same time, a suspicion about  their crudeness.
