Poems have a different music from ordinary language, and every poem has a different kind of music of necessity, and that's, in a way, the hardest thing about writing poetry is waiting for that music, and sometimes you never know if it's going to come.

诗有不同于普通语言的音乐,每首诗都有不同种类的必然音乐,从某种意义上说,写诗最难的就是等待那音乐,有时你永远不知道它是否会到来。

威廉斯

When you begin to write poems because you love language, because you love poetry. Something happens that makes you write poems. And the writing of poems is incredibly pleasurable and addictive.

当你开始写诗是因为你热爱语言,因为你热爱诗歌。有些事让你写诗。而写诗是令人难以置信的愉悦和上瘾。

威廉斯

I tended to write poems about both social and spiritual problems, and some problems one doesn't really want to solve, and so the problems themselves are solved. You certainly don't want to solve problems in poems that haven't been solved in the world.

我倾向于写一些关于社会和精神问题的诗,有些问题是人们不想解决的,所以问题本身就解决了。你当然不想解决世界上没有解决的诗歌问题。
