“You never know where poetry comes from.   
The more ittakes you by surprise, the better it is.”  
—W. S. Merwin

                    “All right, O Muse—surprise me once again:
                     Let’s see what fourteen lines will soon reveal
                     I thank you now for what you’ll give—amen.”
                     I’m confident this won’t be an ordeal . .  .
