Jarrell

Famous quotes containing the word jarrell:

    A filmy trash
    Litters the black woods with the death
    Of men; and one last breath

    Curls from the monstrous chimney. . . .
    —Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    —Here, the flag snaps in the glare and silence
    Of the unbroken ice. I stand here,
    The dogs bark, my beard is black, and I stare
    At the North Pole. . .
    And now what? Why, go back.

    Turn as I please, my step is to the south.
    —Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
    When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
    —Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)
