Franz Kline & Frank O'Hara

I will always love you
though I never loved you

 

a boy smelling faintly of heather
staring up at your window

 

the passion that enlightens
and stills and cultivates, gone

 

while I sought your face
to be familiar in the blueness

 

or to follow your sharp whistle
around a corner into my light

 

that was love growing fainter
each time you failed to appear

 

I spent my whole self searching
love which I thought was you

 

it was mine so briefly
and I never knew it, or you went

 

I thought it was outside disappearing
but it is disappearing in my heart

 

like snow blown in a window
to be gone from the world

 

I will always love you.

Featuring the work of 42 poets and artists, from Dylan Thomas to Frank O’Hara, and Helen Phillips to Willem de Kooning, the portfolio 21 Etchings and Poems, published in 1960, represents a noteworthy collaboration between the visual and literary arts. Each print closely integrates text and image, including a poem written in the hand of its author and imagery created through a wide range of innovative print techniques. Initiated by artist Peter Grippe, director of the renowned Atelier 17 print workshop, and the result of nearly ten years of effort, 21 Etchings and Poems is not only a landmark of mid-20th century American print publishing, but is unique in its inclusion of writers and artists from across the spectrum of 1950s cultural production.
