Famous quotes containing the words karl shapiro and/or shapiro:

    My soul is now her day, my day her night,
    So I lie down, and so I rise;
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    As groceries in a pantry gleam and smile
    Because they are important weights
    Bought with the metal minutes of your pay,
    So do these hours stand in solid rows,
    The dowry for a use in common life.
    —Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)
