Beautiful words ♥

“As a poet I hold the most archaic values on earth . . . 
the fertility of the soil, the magic of animals, 
the power-vision in solitude, 
the terrifying initiation and rebirth, 
the love and ecstasy of the dance, 
the common work of the tribe. 
I try to hold both history 
and the wilderness in mind, 
that my poems may approach 
the true measure of things 
and stand against the unbalance 
and ignorance of our times.”
