Louise Townsend Nicholl
“All longed-for poems have the opaque glow / Of unrubbed quartz half hidden under snow.”
“... how vast and simple time appears / When yesterday becomes a thousand years.”
“I gave my love to the house forever. / I will come till I cannot come, I said, / And the house said, I will know.”
Louise Townsend Nicholl, U.S. poet
(1890 - 1981)
