“I told no one, but the snows came, anyway.
They weren’t even serious about it, at first.
Then, they seem to say, if nothing happened,
Snow could say that, & almost entirely.”
–Larry Levis, “Gossip in the Village”
Larry Levis (1946-1996) was an award-winning poet who wrote six books of poetry during his lifetime. His collection, Elegy, was published posthumously. A Selected Poems was published in 2000. The Darkening Trapeze, a collection of last poems, was published in 2016. Levis was a much-beloved member of the faculty at the MFA Program for Writers, cherished as much for his incisive mind as for the care and attention he gave to his students.
