Selected poems from a lifetime of published and unpublished poems by poet and translator William Elliott.Poems include:Deeper DarkThere is a dark deeper. Than shadows' darkness:Remember the air Blanketing the pages. In a closed book, where Darkness is utter.Pointed Out. A covey of quail. Flushed from my brain. Flutter to new cover.

Quarreling and never knew what distance. Grew within their tight objective grasp.
