"Got out of bed on two strong legs ... might have been otherwise ... took the dog uphill to the birch wood ... did the work I love ... might have been otherwise ... we ate dinner together at a table with silver candlesticks ... might have been otherwise ... slept in a bed ... planned another day just like this day ... one day, I know, it will be otherwise."

"Jane Kenyon is considered one of America's best contemporary poets. Her previous collection, Otherwise: New & Selected Poems, published just after her death in 1995, has been a favorite among readers and is already a contemporary classic." "Now at the ten-year anniversary of her death, Kenyon's Collected Poems assembles all of her published poetry in one book. Included here are the complete poems found in her four previous volumes-From Room to Room, The Boat of Quiet Hours, Let Evening Come, and Constance-as well as the poems that appear in her posthumous volumes Otherwise and A Hundred White Daffodils, four poems never before published in book form, and her translations in Twenty Poems of Anna Akhmatova.

The best poems of Jane Kenyon by Jane Kenyon( Book )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published twenty-five years after her untimely death, The Best Poems of Jane Kenyon presents the essential work of one of America's most cherished poets--celebrated for her tenacity, spirit, and grace. In their inquisitive explorations and direct language, Jane Kenyon's poems disclose a quiet certainty in the natural world and a lifelong dialogue with her faith and her questioning of it. As a crucial aspect of these beloved poems of companionship, she confronts her struggle with severe depression on its own stark terms. Selected by Kenyon's husband, Donald Hall, just before his death in 2018, The Best Poems of Jane Kenyon collects work from across a life and career that will be, as she writes in one poem, "simply lasting."--
Let evening come : selected poems by Jane Kenyon( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Jane Kenyon (1947-95) is one of poetry's rarest and most heart-breaking gifts. After fighting depression for most of her life, Jane Kenyon died from leukaemia at the age of 47. Her quietly musical poems are moving, compassionate meditations intently probing the life of the heart and spirit. Observing and absorbing small miracles in everyday life, these apparently simple poems grapple with fundamental questions of human existence. They are psalms of love and death, God and nature, joy and despair "Let the light of late afternoon //shine through chinks in the barn, moving //up the bales as the sun moves down. // Let the cricket take up chafing // as a woman takes up her needles // and her yarn. Let evening come. // Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned // in long grass. Let the stars appear // and the moon disclose her silver horn. // Let the fox go back to its sandy den. // Let the wind die down. Let the shed // go black inside. Let evening come. // To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop in the oats, to air in the lung let evening come. Let it come, as it will, and don't // be afraid. God does not leave us // comfortless, so let evening come
