Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Bye to a dear friend and friend of poetry and poets everywhere, Ronni Leopold. [By Jennifer Michael Hecht]:


Dear Jennifer,
Ronni was my very close friend. I just stumbled across your tribute to her and wanted to tell you how lovely it on! I have forwarded it to her family to read and will also be circulating it to the rest of "our crowd." Please do come to the memorial on August 21, 1 pm East Village Synagogue 33 E 12th St.
With regards,
Libby Edwards

She was a friend to the visual artists too. I will never forget her rapid fire generosity when she came to my first open studio. It kind of took my breath away. I knew her very briefly but it was as you described, a kind of intense joyfulness, or a joyful intensity, about everything. I will always be grateful to have met her. Thank you dear Libby! And I hope to be with all of you on the 21st.

Julie Mardin

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
