    Galway Kinnell came to New Zealand on a sponsored poetry reading tour many years ago. I wish that I had seen and heard him.He writes in a natural style, never affected, and he always expresses the message he wants to transmit. A true poet of the modern world, not the past.

    The reader is terrible. It distracts from the writing. It sounds lie it is artificial.

Best Poem of Galway Kinnell

Wait

Wait, for now.
Distrust everything, if you have to.
But trust the hours. Haven't they
carried you everywhere, up to now?
Personal events will become interesting again.
Hair will become interesting.
Pain will become interesting.
Buds that open out of season will become lovely again.
Second-hand gloves will become lovely again,
their memories are what give them
the need for other hands. And the desolation
of lovers is the same: that enormous emptiness
carved out of such tiny beings as we are
asks to be filled; the need
for the new love is faithfulness...
