In Trackless Woods
In trackless woods, it puzzled me to find
Four great rock maples seemingly aligned,
As if they had been set out in a row
Before some house a century ago,
To edge the property and lend some shade.
I looked to see if ancient wheels had made
Old ruts to which the trees ran parallel,
But there were none, so far as I could tell-
There'd been no roadway. Nor could I find the square
Depression of a cellar anywhere,
And so I tramped on further, to survey
Amazing patterns in a hornbeam spray
Or spirals in a pine cone, under trees
Not subject to our stiff geometries.

A New York Times Notable Book

"The indispensable Wilbur."--The New York Times Book Review
 
"The work in these 500 or so pages has been one of the saving graces of poetry in our time. Such a volume will see a reader through quiet evenings and noisy Metro commutes, indeed through one's whole life."--The Washington Post Book World

"Collected Poems may well contain the most distinguished body of work by any American poet writing in the second half of the 20th century." – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"[Wilbur] should be read in the company of Robert Frost and Wallace Stevens." -- Harold Bloom
