  1. What a beautiful and tense poem..thank you for sharing it Curtis..

  2. Visiting you blog always brings me back to what's important in life ... Thank you for all the time you put into it, Curtis.

  3. You're both very kind. Thank you. I discovered Lorine Niedecker's poetry through examples published on Tom Clark's blog. What a poet she is; quiet surprises everywhere. I thought the Ryders suited the words. Curtis
