Thanks to all who participated in my Great Poetry Book Giveaway this year! I picked names out of the numerical hat and sent a copy of my Gods of Water and Air to one winner and Stanley Kunitz’s book Passing Through. I noticed we all entered each other’s Poetry Book Giveaways. It was a pleasure to read blogs I hadn’t visited and learn about books I will now buy. In the giving spirit, I’m offering a discount on Gods of Water and Air during June: just $11 — or 18% off the Amazon list price, if you purchase directly from me. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make arrangements.
Here’s a poem from the book. It’s about Emily Dickinson:
Was like the other Days —
Until the Coronation came —
And then — ’twas Otherwise —
