Selected poems from a lifetime of published and unpublished poems by poet and translator William Elliott.Poems include: Deeper Dark There is a dark deeper Than shadows' darkness: Remember the air Blanketing the pages In a closed book, where Darkness is utter. Pointed Out A covey of quail Flushed from my brain Flutter to new cover Here in the bramble of a poem, Pretty well-camouflaged. What Distance Grew Above the vacant lot streetlights arranged The night in floating parallelograms; Light licked along the wires, our voices Greeted there and quarreled horizontally Between embarrassed poles, beyond the lights' Dominion. Beside a lake, above a hill, Ravens wrapped their claws around our costly Quarreling and never knew what distance Grew within their tight objective grasp.
