(Stephen Spender, poet laureate, 1965-1966,
the only non-U.S. citizen chosen for the office)


The word bites like a fish.
Shall I throw it back free
Arrowing to that sea
Where thoughts lash tail and fin?
Or shall I pull it in
To rhyme upon a dish?

~ Stephen Spender (1909-1995), British poet, translator, editor, and writer of essays and memoirs
