May Sarton Quotes: Journey By Train Stretched Across

Journey By Train Stretched Across Counties, Countries, The Train Rushes Faster Than Memory Through The Rain. The Rise Of Each Hill Is A Musical Phrase. Listen To The Rhythm Of Space, How It Lies, How It Rolls, How It Reaches, What Unwinding Relays Of Wood And Meadow Where The Red Cows Graze Come Back Again And Again To Closed Eyes- That Garden, That Pink Farm, That Village Steeple, And Here And There The Solitary People Who Stand Arrested When Express Trains Pass, That Stillness Of An Orchard In Deep Grass. Yet Landscapes Flow Like This Toward A Place, A Point In Time And Memory's Own Face. So When The Clamor Stops, We Really Climb Down To The Earth, Closing The Curve Of Time, Meeting Those We Have Left, To Those We Meet Bringing Our Whole Life That Has Moved So Fast, And Now Is Gathered Up And Here At Last, To Unroll Like A Ribbon At Their Feet.
