Richard Eberhart, 1904-2005 – Pulitzer Prize-winning poet dies at 101 – Jun 13, 2005

“Poems in a way are spells against death,” Eberhart once told the Concord Monitor. “They are milestones, to see where you were then from where you are now. To perpetuate your feelings, to establish them. If you have in any way touched the central heart of mankind’s feelings, you’ll survive.”
