Laura Benét

  • Few know the ways of this rapt eremite / By civilization he is not impressed; / Lost in the spiral of his conscience, he / Detachedly takes rest.

    • Laura Benét,
    • "The Snail," Noah's Dove ()
  • All of time is given you, man, / To mark with chalk the circle of your walk, / In your submission, / Spell the word fruition.

    • Laura Benét,
    • "Plod Tortoise," Is Morning Sure? ()

Laura Benét, U.S. poet

(1884 - 1979)
