Rimbaud Poems quotes by Carol Emshwiller
#1. Maybe it's animalness that will make the world right again: the wisdom of elephants, the enthusiasm of canines, the grace of snakes, the mildness of anteaters. Perhaps being human needs some diluting. At any rate, how nice to be well dressed and among friends and in a state where poems pop out by themselves. #Quote by Carol Emshwiller
Rimbaud Poems quotes by J. Patrick Lewis
#2. I have always believed that poems beg to be read aloud, even if the reader is in a world all her own. #Quote by J. Patrick Lewis
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Richard Hugo
#3. Lucky accidents seldom happen to writers who don't work. You will find that you may rewrite and rewrite a poem and it never seems quite right. Then a much better poem may come rather fast and you wonder why you bothered with all that work on the earlier poem. Actually, the hard work you do on one poem is put in on all poems. The hard work on the first poem is responsible for the sudden ease of the second. If you just sit around waiting for the easy ones, nothing will come. Get to work. #Quote by Richard Hugo
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Jessye Norman
#4. I read everything. I'll read a John Grisham novel, I'll sit and read a whole book of poems by Maya Angelou, or I'll just read some Mary Oliver - this is a book that was given to me for Christmas. No particular genre. And I read in French, and I read in German, and I read in English. I love to see how other people use language. #Quote by Jessye Norman

Rimbaud Poems quotes by Arthur Rimbaud

Rimbaud Poems quotes by Arthur Rimbaud
#8. They find me odd, and whisper behind hands…And my brutal desires sink hooks into their lips… #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Neil Leckman
#9. Yesterday I fell completely off the face of the earth
Contemplating life, light and love in the darkness of the void
Strangely it was in the dark that I found meaning for the light #Quote by Neil Leckman
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Susan Howe
#10. Edwards's stark presentation of the immanent consciousness of Separation enters the structure of her poems. Each word is a cipher, through its sensible sign another sign hidden. The recipient of a letter, or combination of letter and poem from Emily Dickinson, was forced much like Edwards' listening congregation, through shock and through subtraction of the ordinary, to a new way of perceiving. Subject and object were fused at that moment, into the immediate feeling of understanding. This re-ordering of the forward process of reading is what makes her poetry and the prose of her letters among the most original writing of her century. #Quote by Susan Howe
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Michele Wolf
#11. In two of your poems you called that central
Passage of womanhood a wound,
Instead of a curtain guarding a silken
Trail of sighs. How many men,
Upon regarding such beauty, helplessly
Touching it, recklessly needing
To enter its warmth again and again,
Have assumed it embodies their own ache
Of absence, the personal
Gash that has punished their lives.
So endowed of anatomy, any woman
Who has been loved
Knows that her tenderest blush
Of tissue is a luxe burden of have.
Although it bleeds, this is only to cleanse,
To prepare yet another nesting for love.
It is not a wound, friend.
It is a home for you.
It is a way into the world. #Quote by Michele Wolf
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Matthea Harvey
#12. Some of my favorite poems are "confessional" poems written in the voices of aliens ("Southbound on the Freeway" by May Swenson" and "Report from the Surface" by Anthony McCann), sheep ("Snow Line" by John Berryman) or a yak ("The Only Yak in Batesville, Virginia" by Oni Buchanan). #Quote by Matthea Harvey
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Rumi
#13. If these poems repeat themselves, then so does Spring. #Quote by Rumi
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Anthony Hecht
#14. I'm filled with admiration, delight, and gratitude at discovering James Lasdun's poems in A Jump Start. He has wit, speed, intelligence, a keen eye, precision, and imagination of a high order. #Quote by Anthony Hecht
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Nicole Krauss
#15. For me, what I am making in the novel is a place to live. When I first switched from poetry to novels, I was asked why, and the metaphor I came up with was about poems as rooms. You can make a room perfect, but then you have to shut the door and never go back, whereas a novel is like a house - it can never be perfect, but you can make a life in it. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Drea Damara
#16. When Love Was New

When love was new
and life was young,
and once we walked
in gracious sun,
I never dreamt of darker days,
or feared that fate had cruel ways.

When life was strong
and love was free,
and time was once
eternity -
we never planned for more or less,
nor stopped to think we should digress.

When love was young
and life was new,
and everything
was once our due,
I never doubted what I owned,
nor knew the cost was merely loaned.

Now love is tried
and life is old,
and still my feet
drag down the road -
not knowing where it all has gone,
nor how much more it still goes on.

But life grows new
and love gets old,
and this tired heart
stays off the cold -
not caring it compares with fools,
nor wise enough to fear the rules.
-Drea Damara #Quote by Drea Damara
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#17. Poems On Time The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. Time is a wealth of change, but the clock in its parody makes it mere change and no wealth. Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Dylan Thomas
#18. Reading one's own poems aloud is letting the cat out of the bag. You may have always suspected bits of a poem to be overweighted, overviolent, or daft, and then, suddenly, with the poet's tongue around them, your suspicion is made certain. #Quote by Dylan Thomas
Rimbaud Poems quotes by David Whyte
#19. When I recite poems onstage, I put myself into the very personal struggle and it grants tremendous perspective. At the same time you get another perspective on the poem you're reciting. #Quote by David Whyte
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Emily Dickinson
#20. Did you ever read one of her Poems backward, because the plunge from the front overturned you? I sometimes (often have, many times) have - A something overtakes the Mind. #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Naomi Shihab Nye
#21. Valentine for Ernest Mann"

You can't order a poem like you order a taco.
Walk up to the counter, say, "I'll take two"
and expect it to be handed back to you
on a shiny plate.

Still, I like your spirit.
Anyone who says, "Here's my address,
write me a poem," deserves something in reply.
So I'll tell a secret instead:
poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
they are sleeping. They are the shadows
drifting across our ceilings the moment
before we wake up. What we have to do
is live in a way that lets us find them.

Once I knew a man who gave his wife
two skunks for a valentine.
He couldn't understand why she was crying.
"I thought they had such beautiful eyes."
And he was serious. He was a serious man
who lived in a serious way. Nothing was ugly
just because the world said so. He really
liked those skunks. So, he re-invented them
as valentines and they became beautiful.
At least, to him. And the poems that had been hiding
in the eyes of skunks for centuries
crawled out and curled up at his feet.

Maybe if we re-invent whatever our lives give us
we find poems. Check your garage, the off sock
in your drawer, the person you almost like, but not quite. #Quote by Naomi Shihab Nye
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Stephanie Lahart
#22. His tongue was one of his greatest qualities. He knew exactly how to use it with me. Encouraging, kind, and loving words flowed freely and frequently from his lips. Always inspiring me to upgrade my thinking. His tongue spoke life into me… Awakening gifts in me that I didn't know existed. He used his tongue wisely. Truth be told, he's part of the reason why I am me. Exquisite, Powerful, Fearless, and Unapologetic. I'll be forever grateful for his genuine love. #Quote by Stephanie Lahart
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Arthur Rimbaud
#23. The same bourgeois magic everywhere the mail train sets you down. #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Charles-Francois Dupuis
#24. If there is one fable, which would seem entitled to escape the analysis, which we have undertaken of religious poems and sacred legends, by the laws of physical and astronomical science, it is doubtless that of Christ, or the legend, which under that name is really dedicated to the worship of the Sun. The hatred, which the sectarians of that religion, - jealous to make their form of worship dominant over all others, - have shown against those, who worshipped Nature, the Sun, the Moon and the Stars, against the Roman Deities, whose temples and altars they have upset, - would suscitate the idea, that their worship did not form a part of that otherwise universal religion. #Quote by Charles-Francois Dupuis
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Miriam Joy
#25. In May I keep count.
Two and a half more days of school;
five between exams.
Twenty thousand words of a novel
and four poems and six borrowed books.
More numbers to add to counting my pills
and trying to work out how to stay awake. #Quote by Miriam Joy
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Heng Siok Tian
#26. Inside a home you left me, a blue orphanage.
Inside a bluish mosaic, space to live. #Quote by Heng Siok Tian
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Atticus Poetry
#27. I let her go
because I knew she could do better
and now she's gone
I wonder
if I should've
just been better. #Quote by Atticus Poetry
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Grace Paley
#28. When I was about twenty-one, I published a few poems. Maybe I wrote a couple of stories before, but I really began to write stories in my mid-thirties. My kids were still little, and they were in school and day care, and I had begun to think a lot about wanting to tell some stories and not being able to do it in poetry. #Quote by Grace Paley
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Deborah Wells
#29. The dark man is ubiquitous. People from all times and in all places have recorded their experiences of him in stories, poems, paintings, songs, stone, dance, crafts and prayers. Saint or sinner, scientist or theologian, agnostic or true believer, it makes little difference as the dark man has walked beside us since the very beginning and he will stay with us until the end. He is so intrinsic to the human experience that everyone has at least one dark man story to tell... #Quote by Deborah Wells
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Randall Jarrell
#30. It is always hard for poets to believe that one says their poems are bad not because one is a fiend but because their poems are bad. #Quote by Randall Jarrell
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Mary Oliver
#31. Writers must ... take care of the sensibility that houses the possibility of poems. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Gilbert Sorrentino
#32. What if this young woman, who writes such bad poems, in competition with her husband, whose poems are equally bad, should stretch her remarkably long and well-made legs out before you, so that her skirt slips up to the tops of her stockings? #Quote by Gilbert Sorrentino
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Ben Lerner
#33. Poetry: What kind of art assumes the dislike of its audience and what kind of artist aligns herself with that dislike, even encourages it? An art hated from without and within. #Quote by Ben Lerner
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#34. They would carry their books to the woods and read aloud to one another. At picnic lunches near Cooper's Bluff, they recited their favorite poems. "In the early days," Fanny recalled, "we all delighted in Longfellow and Mrs. Browning and Owen Meredith." Later, they turned to Swinburne, Kipling, Shelley, and Shakespeare. The Roosevelts #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Pattiann Rogers
#35. Ordering is very important with essays, even if a reader doesn't read the essays or the poems in order through the book. #Quote by Pattiann Rogers
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Anne Waldman
#36. For me poems are acts re-done, and that can vibrate well into the future. #Quote by Anne Waldman
Rimbaud Poems quotes by R.L. Martinez
#37. How does a person exist after their world has been torn to pieces? It must be possible. People do it all the time. After all the floods and tornadoes and wars that have hit the world with inexorable violence, people somehow scrape up their lives and begin again. #Quote by R.L. Martinez
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Antony Beevor
#38. A blend of fact and fiction has been used in various forms since the dawn of creative writing, starting with sagas and epic poems. #Quote by Antony Beevor
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Arthur Rimbaud
#39. It is found again.
What? Eternity.
It is the sea
Gone with the sun. #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Vikrmn
#40. Caution: Poems are sweeter than chocolates. #Quote by Vikrmn
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Kamand Kojouri
#41. Find me here,
said love.
I will wait for you
below and above.

I will wait for you
in the dark, in the light.
I will wait for you
in the day, in the night.

I have waited millions of years
and haven't grown weary once.
All of eternity I will wait
though there's nowhere I haven't been once.

I have been in hearts and groins,
in the whole and the chasm.
I have been in birth and death,
in the fucking and the orgasm.

If you close your eyes, I am there,
in your nakedness, in your truth.
If you ask for me, I will come
in your age, in your youth.

Because I love you, lover.
And wish to be loved.
Find me here, said love.
I wish to be loved. #Quote by Kamand Kojouri
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Ventum
#42. If you catch your
mind and heart
at war, it is your
worth, the mind
is fighting for. #Quote by Ventum
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Phar West Nagle
#43. Following dark winter's strife, a warm air rises, teemed with life. Birth, rebirth, as the waiting die. Old love, new love sprouts wings to fly. #Quote by Phar West Nagle
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Henry James
#44. Mr. Morris's poem is ushered into the world with a very florid birthday speech from the pen of the author of the too famous Poems and Ballads, - a circumstance, we apprehend, in no small degree prejudicial to its success. But we hasten to assure all persons whom the knowledge of Mr. Swinburne's enthusiasm may have led to mistrust the character of the work, that it has to our perception nothing in common with this gentleman's own productions, and that his article proves very little more than that his sympathies are wiser than his performance. If Mr. Morris's poem may be said to remind us of the manner of any other writer, it is simply of that of Chaucer; and to resemble Chaucer is a great safeguard against resembling Swinburne. #Quote by Henry James
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Hannah Weiner
#45. I rushed through the door.
You had bitten a way for me. #Quote by Hannah Weiner
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Alix E. Harrow
#46. Sentences may alter the weather, and poems might tear down walls. Stories may change the world. #Quote by Alix E. Harrow
Rimbaud Poems quotes by Manuela George-Izunwa
#47. t is silly to think they all achieved it "just like that".
nothing in life is so easy, that is a fact.
Behind the scenes were tears and pain,
they stumbled and fell but got up again.
They heard a voice, firm and true
"Muster yourself you'll make it through"
Steadied by a hand they arose to dance
in the turmoil and storm with perseverance
At the end, it came upon them; a light so bright
success was theirs: it was their right! #Quote by Manuela George-Izunwa
