Edith Sitwell quotes on poem

  Answers I kept my answers small and kept them near; Big questions bruised my mind but still I letSmall answers be a bullwark to my fear. The huge abstractions I kept from the light; Small things I handled and caressed and loved.I let the stars assume the whole of night. But the big answers clamoured to be moved Into my life. Their great audacityShouted to be acknowledged and believed. Even when all small answers build up toProtection of my spirit, still I hearBig answers striving for their overthrow. And all the great conclusions coming near
