Donald Justice quotes- 7 of
The artist will have had his revenge for being made to wait,
A revenge not only necessary but right and clever--
This one was put in a jacket,
This one was sent home,
Jane looks down at her organdy skirt
As if it somehow were the thing disgraced,
Soon the purple dark must bruise
Lily and bleeding-heart and rose,
the face of that father,
Still warm with the mystery of lather.
Men at forty
Learn to close softly
The doors to rooms they will not be
Coming back to.
We have climbed the mountain,
There's nothing more to do.
