Too many of my poems have clever rhymes without making you feel anything. I'd rather make you feel something. Hart Crane was really good at that. Half the time people didn't even know what his poem was about. But they felt things. They were moved. Maybe that's all that matters.

I stood beneath some windy tree,

And watched you plunge into a sea,

Of bridled, uncrafted memory,

Your cavalier laughter toward mystery,

Left behind at the bend.

 

And I had time to wonder,

What jewels you would plunder,

What lives your heart might tear asunder,

In that way your laughter flitted and blundered,

Whom would you move by their end?

 

And I waited 'til you disappeared.

Blowing leaves swept from the sky and sheared,

Your ever diminishing shape, unclear.

What lives are you going to touch, my dear,

As the little of mine I did lend?
