"Wait" is one of Kinnell's great short poems.
He writes deliberately, which means that every word he writes is chosen
consciously and for a reason. Thus it is disheartening,--no,
infuriating--to see his poem misprinted here and on other online venues.
Find the book Mortal Acts Mortal Words, read the poem, and correct your
online version. If I were the poet, I would bring an action against you.

this is the most beautiful poem I have ever heard. IT is my all time
favorite. Mr. Kinnell wrote this for a student who went through a bad
break up and was contemplating suicide. It's simply breathtaking.
