Roethke

His lucent lines

that wake to sleep

 

are a subtle

and suitable rebuke

 

to all disciples

of heat and agitation,

 

to those who deal

in "relevancies" 

 

that will be obsolete

in a week or so.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I never heard the name, so I wouldn't know how his style could affect :/ Beautiful lines, though. They also speak to my wish for the "heat and agitation" to just calm down - merci.
