Citações Elinor Wylie

„We shall live well — we shall live very well.“

—  Elinor Wylie, livro Nets to Catch the Wind

3
Nets to Catch the Wind (1921), Wild Peaches
Contexto: When strawberries go begging, and the sleek
Blue plums lie open to the blackbird’s beak,
We shall live well — we shall live very well.

„When the world turns completely upside down
You say we’ll emigrate to the Eastern Shore
Aboard a river-boat from Baltimore“

Nets to Catch the Wind (1921), Wild Peaches
Contexto: When the world turns completely upside down
You say we’ll emigrate to the Eastern Shore
Aboard a river-boat from Baltimore;
We’ll live among wild peach trees, miles from town,
You’ll wear a coonskin cap, and I a gown
Homespun, dyed butternut’s dark gold color.
Lost, like your lotus-eating ancestor,
We’ll swim in milk and honey till we drown.

„Under oak, ash and thorn
My soul was born.“

—  Elinor Wylie

"Beltane", published in Last Poems of Elinor Wylie (1943)
Contexto: Under oak, ash and thorn
My soul was born.
Under thorn, oak and ash
My body bent to the lash. <!--
Under ash, thorn and oak
My heart broke.
Under oak, ash and thorn all three
I was nailed to a tree.

„Down to the Puritan marrow of my bones
There’s something in this richness that I hate.“

—  Elinor Wylie, livro Nets to Catch the Wind

Nets to Catch the Wind (1921), Wild Peaches
Contexto: Down to the Puritan marrow of my bones
There’s something in this richness that I hate.
I love the look, austere, immaculate,
Of landscapes drawn in pearly monotones.
There’s something in my very blood that owns
Bare hills, cold silver on a sky of slate,
A thread of water, churned to milky spate
Streaming through slanted pastures fenced with stones.

„A bell is clanging, people sway
Hanging by their hands.“

—  Elinor Wylie, livro Nets to Catch the Wind

Nets to Catch the Wind (1921), A Crowded Trolley Car
Contexto: The rain’s cold grains are silver-gray
Sharp as golden sands,
A bell is clanging, people sway
Hanging by their hands.

„Brothers, yet insensate brutes
Who fear each others’ eyes.“

—  Elinor Wylie, livro Nets to Catch the Wind

Nets to Catch the Wind (1921), A Crowded Trolley Car
Contexto: Orchard of the strangest fruits
Hanging from the skies;
Brothers, yet insensate brutes
Who fear each others’ eyes.
