Reading William Stafford

Hearing Stafford's
tone of voice,
catching his
peculiar song,


like a murmur
solitary,
far removed
from mob and throng ---


but this murmur
(whisper even)
beckons us

from slender book,


counsels Careful,
urges Look,
ventures quietly
Rejoice.

Having read only one poem by him, I can't say for sure, but it does seem that you've accurately and artfully described his work.
