National Poetry Month: April 9 and 10

Hi Friends,

For every writer, there is the infrequent, yet pure joy of creativity, when expression literally comes through you and onto a page. Rare, it is, indeed, and when it happens, so exquisite. Well, there is a new joy, and it’s profound. That of one’s work being translated into another poet’s own work, alchemical, organic, and transformative. Like a trance in motion. Please read this exquisite review of Addicts & Basements by Mark Kerstetter at his blog, The Mockingbird Sings. Thanks a million, Mark:

For National Poetry Month, on April 9th, I read “untitled” by Marilyn Hacker from this poetry collection, all sonnets:

Also, on April 10th (today) I read “Lullaby” by W.H. Auden:
