Heidi’s favorite poet is Mary Oliver. Contemporary. Female. A writer of books on meter, sound and other matters of form. Her own poetry is only indirectly so sturctured. I found a poem by her that I think would be a good counterpoint to the Swinburne. Its called the sun. Its quite different in tone and stlye, I would say.
One response to “A second poem”
Sounds good to me… Very different, indeed, but it does look like it might be nice to contrast with the Swinburne. I’m all for it.
