“All the way down through the moonlight beside the river I was literally attacked by so many poems that I felt like a juggler, terrified that I couldn’t keep them all going long enough at least to jot down a note. When I arrived, I made a dash for the typewriter, coat still on and typed like automatic writing for half an hour.”

letter to Louise Bogan, in May Sarton: Selected Letters 1955–1995 (New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 2002), 37.
