Stuart Merrill
I believe Beauty is the condition of the perfect life, just as important as Virtue and Truth.
Merrill quotes
In the whole period, from Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson to Edwin Arlington Robinson and Robert Frost, the greatest American poet is Stuart Merrill.
Fume l'encens, veille l'amour,
Dans son lit bleu la vierge est morte;
Couve le feu, tombe le jour,
L'Ange, mes soeurs, frappe ? la porte.
