May Swenson

“I'm two eyes looking out of a suit of armor. I write because I can't talk.”
― May Swenson

“Take earth for your own large room and the floor of earth carpeted with sunlight and hung round with silver wind for your dancing place.”
― May Swenson

“The best poetry has its roots in the subconscious to a great degree. Youth, naivety, reliance on instinct more than learning and method, a sense of freedom and play, even trust in randomness, is necessary to the making of a poem.”

“‎It's not for me - religion. It seems like a redundancy for a poet.”
― May Swenson
