Does anyone remember a particular poem that art critic Harold Rosenberg wrote?

Does anyone remember a particular poem that art critic Harold Rosenberg wrote? It began something like "The best something-or-other" and had a line about some feeling - surprise, perhaps - as light filled a room. Sorry for the immense vagueness. Thanks.

Does anyone remember the rest of a short poem by Ernst Wichert, in German?

does anyone remember - in german - the rest of a short poem by ernst wichert that begins "wir wissen wann kommt der taifun..."? as i recall, it was about how one can tell a storm is coming because their neighbors, even before the storm comes, are losing their heads, and the expression, "losing their heads" means the same in german as "losing their roofs." thanks.

Looking for a poem.

I'm thinking of a Czeslaw Milosz poem I read a few years ago in either a magazine or a book. It's written from the point of view of an old man, looking back over his life. He realizes that all the good things, all the bad things he's done in his life can be boiled down to one word: desire. I think it includes descriptions of the various things he's desired (food, women, et cetera). Any ideas?
