WASHINGTON (AP) — Louise Glück, winner of a Pulitzer Prize and a dozen other poetry awards, will be the next U.S. poet laureate….

Asked for a sample of her work, she suggested five lines from “The Seven Ages,” published in 2001:

“Immunity to time, to change.  Sensation

Of perfect safety, the sense of being

Protected from what we loved

And our intense need was
                        absorbed by the night

And returned as sustenance.”
