Thom Gunn Quotes

    To Yvor Winters

    Though night is always close, complete negation
    Ready to drop on wisdom and emotion,
    Night from the air or the carnivorous breath,
    Still it is right to know the force of death,
    And, as you do, persistent, tough in will,
    Raise from the excellent the better still.
