A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown —
Who ponders this tremendous scene —
This whole Experiment of Green —
As if it were his own!
~ Emily Dickinson ~
As Czeslaw Milosz says in his poem "Esse," we strive to name the world, the spring landscape, the green experiment: "repeating only: is! . . . I was left behind with the immensity of existing things. A sponge, suffering because it cannot saturate itself; a river, suffering because reflections of clouds and trees are not clouds and trees."
The Fortnightly Kitti Carriker:
Like a Spinning Top, Like a Sponge
