'In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.'
(Henry Beston)

'Poetry carries us, not just on the backs of words, but also on the spaces between the words.'
(Don Domanski)
