James Arlington Wright Poems

  • At The Executed Murderer's Grave
    Why should we do this? What good is it to us? Above all,
    how can we do such a thing? How can it possibly be done?

    --Freud ...
  • To A Blossoming Pear Tree
    Beautiful natural blossoms,
    Pure delicate body,
    You stand without trembling.
    Little mist of fallen starlight, ...
  • A Blessing
    Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota,
    Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass.
    And the eyes of those two Indian ponies
    Darken with kindness. ...
  • The Jewel
    There is this cave
    In the air behind my body
    That nobody is going to touch:
    A cloister, a silence ...
  • The Secret Of Light
    I am sitting contented and alone in a little park near the Palazzo Scaligere in Verona, glimpsing the mists of early autumn as they shift and fade among the pines and city battlements on the hills above the river Adige.

    The river has recovered from this morning's rainfall. It is now restoring to its shapely body its own secret light, a color of faintly cloudy green and pearl.

Emily Dickinson Poem
Experience Is The Angled Road
 by Emily Dickinson


Experience is the Angled Road
Preferred against the Mind
By—Paradox—the Mind itself—
Presuming it to lead

Quite Opposite—How Complicate
