Citações Gwendolyn Brooks

„Already I am no longer looked at with lechery or love.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks

A Sunset of the City
Contexto: Already I am no longer looked at with lechery or love.
My daughters and sons have put me away with marbles and dolls,
Are gone from the house.
My husband and lovers are pleasant or somewhat polite
And night is night.

„Our earth is round, and, among other things
That means that you and I can hold completely different
Points of view and both be right.
The difference of our positions will show
Stars in your window I cannot even imagine.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks

The above statements have been widely published in the above format as lines of verse attributed to Brooks, usually as a poem titled "Corners on the Curving Sky" — but one website http://web.archive.org/20090809112040/www.geocities.com/juscurious/anon.html indicated that she declared she did not write them. The words actually occur as an introduction to the "Corners on the Curving Sky" section of the book Soulscript (1970) compiled by June Jordan, in which other poems of Brooks were included, and thus is apparently the work of Jordan. It appears simply in paragraph form and reads thus:
Misattributed, "Corners on the Curving Sky"
Contexto: Our earth is round, and, among other things
That means that you and I can hold completely different
Points of view and both be right.
The difference of our positions will show
Stars in your window I cannot even imagine.
Your sky may burn with light,
While mine, at the same moment,
Spreads beautiful to darkness.

„You don’t get all your questions answered in this world.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks

"Song of Winnie"
Winnie (1988)
Contexto: My Poem is life, and not finished.
It shall never be finished.
My Poem is life, and can grow.

Wherever life can grow, it will.
It will sprout out,
and do the best it can.
I give you what I have.
You don’t get all your questions answered in this world.
How many answers shall be found
in the developing world of my Poem?
I don’t know. Nevertheless I put my Poem,
which is my life, into your hands, where it will do the best it can.

„I pass you my Poem! — to tell you
we are all vulnerable“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks

the midget, the Mighty,
the richest, the poor.
Men, women, children, and trees.
I am vulnerable.
"Song of Winnie"
Winnie (1988)

It will sprout out,
and do the best it can.“

„A poem doesn’t do everything for you.
You are supposed to go on with your thinking.“

—  Gwendolyn Brooks

"Song of Winnie"
Winnie (1988)
Contexto: I pass you my Poem.

A poem doesn’t do everything for you.
You are supposed to go on with your thinking.
You are supposed to enrich
the other person’s poem with your extensions,
your uniquely personal understandings,
thus making the poem serve you.
