Robert Hass Quotes

    Between The Wars

    When I ran, it rained. Late in the afternoon—
    midsummer, upstate New York, mornings I wrote,
    read Polish history, and there was a woman
    whom I thought about; outside the moody, humid
    American sublime—late in the afternoon,
    toward sundown, just as the sky was darkening,
    the light came up and redwings settled in the cattails.
    They were death's idea of twilight, the whole notes
    of a requiem the massed clouds croaked
