Quote: John Steinbeck

One must withdraw for a time from life in order to set down that picture.

John Steinbeck (via theparisreview)

Rain, Donald Hall

poetry365:

Curled on the sofa,
In the fetal position, Jane wept day
And night, night and day.
I could not touch her; I could do nothing.
Melancholia fell
Like rain over Ireland for week
Without end.
I never
Belittled her sorrows or joshed at
Her dreads and miseries.
How admirable I found myself.
