    It doesn't get much better in terms of midcentury poets than James Merrill. A virtuoso with words. -LP

Then when the flame forked like a sudden path
I gasped and stumbled, and was less.
Density pulsing upward, gauze of ash,
Dear light along the way to nothingness,
What could be made of you but light, and this?
