What we did: love. We did not spend our days gazing into each other’s eyes. We did that gazing when we made love or when one of us was in trouble, but most of the time our gazes met and entwined as they looked at a third thing. —Donald Hall, Poetry, November 2004Lydia Kiesling at The Millions talks about her search for wedding-appropriate literature, and points to an episode of This American Life where poet Donald Hall remembers his late wife the poet Jane Kenyon.
