    Many people have sought poetry in response to the death, terror,
    courage, and disruption following the recent attack and massacre. Here
    are four poems: Edwin Arlington Robinson's "The House on the Hill,"
    which meditates on absolute loss and the inadequacy of words; Marianne
    Moore's "What Are Years?" on the subject of courage; Carlos Drummond
    de Andrade's "Souvenir of the Ancient World," in which it is normal life
    that becomes the remote, ancient time; and Czeslaw Milosz's defiant
    invocation of the good, "Incantation."
