„Yet many a man is making friends with death
Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay

Sonnet XXX from Fatal Interview (1931)
Contexto: Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink
Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain;
Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink
And rise and sink and rise and sink again;
Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,
Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone;
Yet many a man is making friends with death
Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.

„The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay, Renascence

"Renascence" (1912), st. 20, Renascence and Other Poems (1917)
Contexto: The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide;
Above the world is stretched the sky, —
No higher than the soul is high.
The heart can push the sea and land
Farther away on either hand;
The soul can split the sky in two,
And let the face of God shine through.
But East and West will pinch the heart
That can not keep them pushed apart;
And he whose soul is flat — the sky
Will cave in on him by and by.

„So wanton, light and false, my love, are you,
I am most faithless when I most am true.“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay, libro A Few Figs from Thistles

From Sonnet III: "Oh, Think not I am faithful to a vow!", A Few Figs from Thistles (1922) <!-- Not sure whether this appears in the 1920 edition. -->
Contexto: But you are mobile as the veering air,
And all your charms more changeful than the tide,
Wherefore to be inconstant is no care:
I have but to continue at your side.
So wanton, light and false, my love, are you,
I am most faithless when I most am true.

„Many a bard's untimely death
Lends unto his verses breath“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay

"To a Poet Who Died Young" in Second April‎ (1921), p. 52
Contexto: Many a bard's untimely death
Lends unto his verses breath;
Here's a song was never sung:
Growing old is dying young.

„I cannot say what loves have come and gone,
I only know that summer sang in me
A little while, that in me sings no more.“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay

Sonnet XLIII: "What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why" (1923), Collected Poems", 1931
Contexto: Thus in the winter stands the lonely tree,
Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one,
Yet knows its boughs more silent than before:
I cannot say what loves have come and gone,
I only know that summer sang in me
A little while, that in me sings no more.

„But, sure, the sky is big, I said;
Miles and miles above my head“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay, Renascence

"Renascence" (1912), st. 3 Renascence and Other Poems (1917)
Contexto: But, sure, the sky is big, I said;
Miles and miles above my head;
So here upon my back I'll lie
And look my fill into the sky.
And so I looked, and, after all,
The sky was not so very tall.
The sky, I said, must somewhere stop,
And — sure enough! — I see the top!
The sky, I thought, is not so grand;
I 'most could touch it with my hand!
And reaching up my hand to try,
I screamed to feel it touch the sky.

„Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink
Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay

Sonnet XXX from Fatal Interview (1931)
Contexto: Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink
Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain;
Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink
And rise and sink and rise and sink again;
Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,
Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone;
Yet many a man is making friends with death
Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.
