Title/subtitle: Weathering: Poems and Translations. Weathering contains the poet's choices from To Lighten My House (1953), Oddments Inklings Omens Moments (1959), and Passwords (1964), some previously unpublished poems and in the final selections his translations of Borges, Neruda, and Pacheco. Copyright dates go through 1977 but it is unclear if that later dates are for poems or translations, though one poem is titled "1973". The book was published in 1978.
