    W. S. Auden. If I Could Tell You -- Time will say nothing but I told you so,/ Time only knows the price we have to pay;/ If I could tell you I would let you know.// If we should weep when clowns put on their show,/ If we should stumble when musicians play,/ Time will say nothing but I told you so.// [...] click through to complete poem: photo by Carl Van Vechten,1939.

    "But to poetry—You have to be willing to waste time. When you start a poem, stay with it and suffer through it and just think about nothing, not even the poem. Just be there. It's more of a prayerful state than writing the novels is. A lot of the novel is in doing good works, as it were, not praying." Robert Penn Warren, uncredited photo

    Wislawa Szymborska.Considerada a “Mozart da poesia”, a escrita era conhecida pelo uso de fábulas, anedotas e metáforas prolongadas, muitas vezes temperadas com ironia e humor amargo. Sua reputação e premiação se baseiam em um conjunto de trabalhos relativamente reduzido, com menos de 350 poemas. Perguntada sobre o motivo de tão poucos de seus escritos terem sido publicados, a autora, que faleceu em 2012, respondeu certa vez: “eu tenho uma lata de lixo em minha casa”.Ano da premiação1996
