Richard Wilbur on nature and culture

"I don't think I have any feeling that nature belongs to poetry more than urban materials. In fact, I had rather not make the distinction between nature and the city. I'd like to see cities as objects quite as natural as bee-hives. Cities are natural things for men to construct."

-Former Poet Laureate Richard Wilbur
