Updike the poet …

…  The Lyric Updike. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Updike collected his poems in 1993, separating them into two categories, with his light verse occupying the second section, given less important status. In his preface to the collection he wrote, “If a set of lines brought back to me something I actually saw or felt, it was not light verse” (Collected Poems xxiii).
