Check these out. Add your favorites if you have some. Richard Wilbur was born in 1922 and in 2004 published his Collected Poems 1943-2004. The NYT published these exerpts http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/29/books/chapters/0529-1st-wilbur.html and at the bottom of that page there's one I like called Blackberries for Amelia so I will put a sample here that starts about halfway thru the poem he is talking about a blackberry thicket the way it looks at the beginning of summer, and the white fivepoint blossoms scatter thru it somewhat like stars and he says: *** ...As the far stars, of which we now are told That ever faster do they bolt away, And that a night may come in which, some say, We shall have only blackness to behold. I have no time for any change so great, But I shall see the August weather spur Berries to ripen where the flowers were-- Dark berries, savage-sweet and worth the wait-- And there will come the moment to be quick And save some from the birds, and I shall need Two pails, old clothes in which to stain and bleed, And a grandchild to talk with while we pick. *** the poem has a complicated message which maybe you need to read the whole thing to get----the darkness at the end of the universe and life is connected and balanced with the dark ripeness of a blackberry. He wrote it in 2003, when he was 81 years old, I guess. If you want to see all 5 stanzas, it is on the NYT page along with some other Wilbur verse. I am using *** as a demarcation for quotes.
