Quote of the Day (Poet Kenneth Koch, Addressing His Love)

“I love you as the sunlight leads the prow
Of a ship which sails
From Hartford to Miami, and I love you
Best at dawn, when even before I am awake the sun
Receives me in the questions which you always pose.”—American poet and longtime Columbia University professor Kenneth Koch (1925-2002), “To You,” from The Collected Poems of Kenneth Koch (2012)
