America, you ode for reality!
Give back the people you took.

Let the sun shine again
on the four corners of the world

you thought of first but do not
own, or keep like a convenience.

People are your own word, you
invented that locus and term.

Creeley holds us a mirror and dares you to look in. Reread this poem again. I dare you. Read it your kids and your neighbors.

Creeley has a tough mirror. Reread this again if you dare. Read it to your kids. This is not sunshine and candy, this hard coal, deadly and full of a heavy smoke.

This is a master of modern poetry. His book “For Love” is one of the most original books in the 20th century. The sincerity of his Work combine with the subtlety is almost unmatched.
