Late FragmentAnd did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
I found other Raymond Carver I liked, too. Here's his poem "Happiness," and here's "Grief." Both describe little moments. And here's "Another Mystery," about death and becoming the oldest generation of your family.
I think I like that little short one the best, though. "To call myself beloved, to feel myself beloved."
The roundup is here today.
