Pulitzer Prize winner Mark Strand taught at The University of Utah from 1981 to 1993.

“And though it was brief, and slight, and nothing
To have been held onto so long, I remember it,
As if it had come from within, one of the scenes
The mind sets for itself, night after night, only
To part from quickly and without warning.”

From “Luminism,” The Continuous Life
