« Percy Bysshe Shelley Goes Boating [by David Lehman] | Main | MCMXIV, by Philip Larkin »

August 04, 2014

There will be a memorial reading at the Strand Bookstore for Tom, on his birthday, November 3:details on Facebook at Tom Weatherly: Kith and Kin Memorial Reading.

Larry Neal taught MauMau American Cantos in my lit class at Williams College in 1974. I met Weatherly at a poetry reading, a few years later, shocked that he was as young and beautiful as he was and my understanding of verse was deepened and transformed. I mourn his departure deeply.

WE'd usually meet biking. He insisted that I wear a helmet. I do. He also insisted I wear two little rear-view mirrors on the helmet., I hope to get around to doing that, too. Miss this True Poet!

Hello, would you happen to know how I can get in touch with his literary estate for permission?

Wonderful tribute to my father...still can’t believe he is gone

You can contact me and Mrs. Wasserman.

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
