Top Five Favourite Endings in Literature
which I look to for inspiration

  1. “But it’s been a long time since/ and we must enquire the way/ of strangers–” Al Purdy, “The Country North of Belleville.”
  2. “On the back is written ‘Look! You can see our breath!’ And you can.” Timothy Findlay, The Wars.
  3. “Sit. Feast on your life.” Derek Walcott,” “Love After Love.”
  4. “This one hasn’t bloomed yet.” Lisa Moore, “Azalea.”
  5. “We are a people in whose bodies old sea-seeking rivers roar with blood.” Wayne Johnston, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams.”
